Woke up this morning; to the sound of rain pattering on my window - thinking about another long day in splendid isolation. Hence my exploration into online chat forums.
Have I come to the right place for some interesting conversations? I shall be 64 next month. Have recently semi-retired.
My children are now out in the world and I wouldn't dream of bothering them. But life seems so very different now (from the last 20 years as a teacher) and I'm not used to uncertainty.
Things to chat about - I love reading, acquired an allotment last year which has been great, and I absolutely love walking (but not in the rain). Hoping to make some new friends.
I’m alone, I have no family support or friends.
I’m sad to think that I have two neighbours both know that I’m alone and disabled yet not one of them has even put a note through my door to ask if I’m ok , what happened to community support!!
Has Scotland just decided to look after number one??
I would appreciate it if I just had someone to talk to 😢
I have six grandchildren who no longer live at home with their parents and I very rarely receive a Thank You. It is so easy these days. They could easily pick up the telephone or send an email. I feel like just sending a card.
Do other grandparents always receive a Thank You?
Hello all, I am new! Never joined a chat site before. Am looking for people to chat with from near and far!
It is understandable that everyone is a little unsettled! With this virus here and abroad, we all need to feel comfort and reassurance! I
know everyone feels a little bit alone, not being able to get out like before. I am glad for this chat room.
By the way, we are going to get through this! Together from miles apart! I am here to listen, if you want to talk!
Do you, if rules allow, attend the funeral of a family member who you haven’t seen for almost 30years? A cousin has died, I have never met any of her family and I doubt anyone at the service would recognise me. Do I attend? Thanks in advance
This weekend I have had 3 approaches from strange men (I am female) wanting me to sign them up as friends with some compliment or other, mainly supposedly Military and American. I've ignored such requests before but this is getting a bit much! Have other ladies experienced the same? And how do you react?
Hello. First time here and I'm going to moan. I live alone and have been trying to find a rescue dog for a few months.
Yesterday I found what I considered a perfect match - a 10-year-old terrier looking for a quiet life with a single adopter.
I submitted an application form and received a phone call within half an hour so I thought YES!
It turns out that because the flat I live in has a communal garden my home isn't suitable - it would seem every rescue dog in the world needs it's own enclosed garden.
I'm glad animals aren't handed over to just anyone without checks but aren't the rescue places being a little too picky?
Hi all, I thought I would join the website and see if I could chat with like minded people. A bit about myself - 64 year old male divorced, three kids, two grandchildren. Hobbies .... self builder, nature, travelling, catching the sun and cooking. I love to cook.
Currently live in Marston Moretaine in the UK. I work as an IT consultant....... YAWN!
How is everyone with the ongoing virus? I hope staying safe.
I must admit I find it more difficult by the week.
Anyhow it would be great to chat with some people near and far! All the best Keith
