Hi I'm 51 year old female from newcastle under Lyme. Divorced. Smoker. I'm looking for friends of similar age to have coffee/ lunch and chats with also possible travel partner. Get bored of my own company sometimes. Missing sunny pool/ beach holidays. I'm not really in to museums and such. If your in the area please feel free to get in contact.
Hi, I'm new here, this is my first post. I am 53 years young! Last August my husband took his own life - I'm not going into it, it would take far too long and I would chase you all away! I have 3 children, aged 15, 22 and 25. All four of us are either on medication, receiving counselling or both. But I don't want this to sound like a sob story, I just find life so very hard. 4 months after he died I found out two things about him that devastated me and give me some answers as to why he did what he did. Our world was ripped apart by his death, and I have gone from missing him and loving him, to hating him and the hurt he has caused us all. My main concern is my 3 children and helping them to get through all this, I also have my 93 year old mother living with us (since 2008) and she has stroke damage, dementia and alzheimers and I am her full time carer. Effectively I am housebound, which I am finding very difficult now. I have my own problems as a result of losing my husband (together 31 years, known for 34) but everybody else has to come first, I am at the back of the line, which I know is not good but I also believe that the majority of people in this position would do the same. I feel very alone, even in a household of 5 people, and this gets me very down. So I thought I would check out the internet and look for local clubs, that sort of thing, and came across Silver Surfers! So I thought I would check it out and see! I hope to make friends on here, maybe socially (I live in Morden, Surrey), but just have a place to go to and chat about anything and everything to help me to stop dwelling on all the negative issues that I am going through. I love a good laugh, I do enjoy craft, cinema, theatre, music, reading, coffee shops, travel, food, driving, pubs and I am sure I can add to that list. I just don't get the chance to do much of it anymore. So if anybody is up for chats, and can help me find my giggle again, then I would love to hear from you. Thanks x

It took me three decades to reach the vision I saw in the mirror, each decade that followed the flowering had more detail and the colour started to fade, but the strength I felt in the stem began to overtake me, now in my late sixties, the vision in the mirror no longer moves me, the stem is strong but a little weaker, life can make me weep, but my presence finally I know her, the flowering of age, the stages of a journey, love to chat
Hi I'm a 56 year old widow who has a busy day time life but would like an interest where I don't need to leave the couch in the evenings so thought I will have my first attempt at a forum if that the right way to put it.
Of the thousands of people who join sites like Silversurfers, the majority are looking for a connection with another human being for whatever it may be. Why then, after their initial post and reply from SS members, they disappear without a word in reply? They talk of wanting friendship, then promptly leave. They pour out their painful hearts wanting replies and help, then disappear. Hands of friendship and help are held out to them only to be ignored why? WHY MAKE THE INITIAL CONTACT, WHAT IS IT THAT PEOPLE REALLY WANT? Do you know what people really want? Everyone, I mean. Everybody in the world is thinking: I wish there was just one other person I could really talk to, who could really understand me, who'd be kind to me. That's what people really want, if they're telling the truth.” ― Doris Lessing, The Golden Notebook
Two weeks ago my husband informed me he wants a divorce after 18 years of marriage. I've had the additional sad and frighting realisation that I have absolutely no friends of my own and no family for support and to enjoy a new life with once this mess is over. Is anyone out there?
