Hi, I Have been on my own for many years but had many friends and an active life style until I had to leave work to care for a parent and little by little friends slipped away, which I understand when you cannot go out any longer and you have nothing to contribute to the conversation except bed baths and bed pans lol which is not really topic to highlight but when that is your day what can you contribute? the friends started to move away and start forging new lives for themselves and you are left behind then as suddenly as it begins it ends have had no one to care for now for 11 months spend most of the day in the house and I am extremely bored but have nothing
The friends started to move away and start forging new lives for themselves and you are left behind then as suddenly as it begins it ends have had no one to care for now for 11 months, spend most of the day in the house and I am extremely bored but have nothing to do or nowhere to go, so looking forward to making new friends on here. I like lots of things just started swimming again and I love family history reading all sorts really.
Hi, I joined some time ago but not done much activity with the forum so far. This is about to change due to the death of my husband 17 months ago. Not enjoying my life that much now - just need to meet and chat with people for companionship. Also would love to meet someone who would holiday with me
Hi, I live in West Yorkshire, just separated. Divorce going through, moving to new area soon but not sure where. Would love to chat to people or even possibly coffee. I'm 60, but reasonable active, have varied interests. Feel very lonely at time, my children don't have a lot to do with me.
Looking to make new friends in North Manchester area who I can meet for a chat, coffee, meals out, days out etc. and possibly travel companions. I am 68 and healthy but my friends are still married and do everything with their husbands. Leaves me feeling isolated. Want to start living again.
Hi everyone I am 62 and was widowed in March 2014 but since then my social life has become virtually zero as most of our socialising was with my late husbands golf buddies and their wives/girlfriends. We hadn't been married long and I don't think most of his family approved of me as I have had no contact with most of them since the funeral or one of his sons for 2 years. Before that I had a thriving collection of acquaintances in the village where I used to live and as I do not drive find it difficult to maintain links with them. I am still working but would like advice or suggestions on how to kickstart my social life .
Well, retired (engineer) and a little beyond official retirement age. Trying to learn piano/keyboard but early days but serious as I think it keeps my motor skills alert and hopefully builds some new memory synapses! Have an allotment and like walking with U3A groups. Anyone interested in chatting via this forum feel free to respond. Cheers.
Hi silver people, I have just joined and am not too sure how the forum works... I have been retired for some time and have separated my life into two parts, summer I play golf and go fishing, winter I travel looking for some sun... I look forward to chatting with some if not all of you, Douglas
