Hi. I’m new to this group. I'm trying to figure it out but very confusing. I’m not old but not young, I like to think of myself as well seasoned.
I like to chat with different people, learn about different countries, etc. sometimes I just need to talk to someone who doesn’t know me. That may sound strange but it’s true. I live in the States.
Between my wife and I, we have 6 children and 1 grandson. Plus 4 fur babies: 1 lab, 2 pit mixes, and 1 imperial shitzu. I love outdoors- sun, water, nature. This is just a bit about me
Do you ever just want to chat with someone who doesn’t know you? Hopefully I’m not the only one.
I’m 54 not retired just yet but am looking forward to 62. Live in the States.
I am definitely a dog person. 4 at the moment. 1 lab, 2 pit mixes, and 1 itty bitty imperial shitzu. I love outdoors, watching my birds and love gardening, although after back surgery raised beds for me now.
Being in, on, or around water is my Valium.
I retired last year. Decided to get some work done on my garden - patio now I'm home more.
The work is poor but they have said they will rectify it. They came and did some more work but it's still very poor. They are coming again in a weeks time. I don't really want them here. Without going into details they have been condescending and patronising.
Citizens advice said I need to give them a chance to put the work right. Is there any kind of organisation who would have someone be here with me when they come?
I can't express how nervous they make me feel.
Our daughter has just moved from Oxfordshire to South Wales and the house that she has bought does not have mains gas.
She wants to to heat the house and water with a wood pellet boiler but we do not know much about them.
As they are eye wateringly expensive I was wondering if anyone can offer any advice about this type of boiler before she spends her money.
Hi again, posted earlier, but can't find my message, maybe it was too early. I live southeast, have interest in gardening used to be avid reader not so much now, still riding a motorbike and in fair weather take a ride up around the beautiful Norfolk coast and down to the southwest.
Winter time takes its toll and I need to fill this time and that's why I have joined silversurfers, so here's to meeting people.
All my friends now are my age, made when I was a younger woman. We are scattered far and wide and write or phone and keep in touch. Some are single, some of us are married but I think deep down we have all gone through a similar life as now in our early 70's. We have all said that somehow it is so hard to find new friends as you get older. Yes there are lots of clubs, village halls that sort of thing but somehow the people you might meet there are not like your old friends.
I wonder why this is, which leaves one to conclude that sharing a lifetime of memories can just not be replaced.
I would like to hear from people who feel the same as I do and what is the solution to meeting new friends later on in life.
