Hello,

As many on this thread, I would like to make new friends and meet for coffee and a chat.

I am 64 and going through separation and divorce, which at my age seems quite late. Could do with some new friends! Sundays are quite challenging.

I am in North Hampshire, but close to West Berkshire and Berkshire too...

Would love to hear from someone interested in making new friends.

Hi Gordon. Welcome to Silversurfers. There are plenty of friendly people to chat with on this site so just dive into the Forum and find some subjects which interest you. You live in a beautiful part of the country. I love the fabulous beaches up there and the castles - so much to see and do and that amazing bookshop in Alnwick! I could sit in there all day 🙂
Response from Northumbrian65 made on 20th Nov 2018 06:22:55
Thank you, Carole, yes your right it is a wonderful bookshop which has visitors from all over the world.

Hi Paul, Janet here. I'm 67 retired looking after two grandchildren (grown up now) for the last twelve years. Live in Farnborough Hants. I attend Slimming World as I need to lose some weight, and am trying to walk my 10,000 steps Ha Ha! most days I only manage 5 - 7 thousand. I hope you are well.

Hi,

I've just joined the site. My husband passed away earlier this year, and although I'm slowly building a new life, I'd be grateful for some tips on how to survive the first year.

I would also like to chat to dog lovers and book worms!
Response from CaroleAH made on 25th Aug 2018 00:13:43
Hi Tulabelle,
Welcome to Silversurfers. Sorry to hear about the death of your husband - I think that the first year after a bereavement is especially hard as it's "the year of firsts" as you cope with birthdays, anniversaries, Christmas etc without your partner. I hope that you find many topics of interest in the Forum which you can join in with. I'm the leader of one of the Book Groups for my local U3A so am sometimes taken right out of my comfort zone having to read books which other members have recommended. I disliked "Elmet" by Fiona Mozley - too violent but have just finished "Ma'am Darling" by Craig Brown which is quite an informative book about Princess Margaret - lots of gossip and scandal 🙂
You might feel like joining your local U3A as they usually have lots of groups ranging from Antiques to Whist and everything in between. I'm in our Singing for Fun group which is great. We also have a Holiday group and it is nice going away with them as you usually know most of the people by sight at least so there's always a friendly face to chat to and quite a few people are single so you wouldn't feel alone in a crowd. Good Luck 🙂
Response from DeborahC6 made on 31st Aug 2018 23:24:44
Hello Tulabelle

I am so very sorry for your loss. I lost my husband 10 years ago this October. As Carole said, the year of firsts is tough as you navigate the first birthday, Christmas or other occasion on your own. I remember wishing I had a sign on my forehead saying "broken" because that's how I felt. It is that feeling of being lost all the time, or not knowing which way to go.

I joined my local book club, and although I didn't like every choice, it did give me something to think about. I also joined a local walking group and many of them do encourage dogs. You can find local groups via Meetup which is a good place to start.

Just remember you are not alone Tulabelle.

Hi, I see this is an older post. Have you found anyone to chat with? How are you doing now..? Has your situation changed.? I assume by now you have made some friends in your new location. You can drop me a line if you are interested. I am 70+ , very mentally alert LOL and have lots of things to keep me busy. I am in Canada. Hope to hear from you.

Hello. I have been absent from the site for quite sometime. I would love to make new friends. I don’t go out very much and would love to chat online.
I do spend most of my time pottering around the garden.
I have two dogs. Lovely family but who are busy with their own lives.

Hello. I am 70= and because my wife still works and my children have their own lives to lead, I am left pretty much on my own most of the time. I used to be a computer programmer (well, none of us are perfect), but now I just like pottering about and cooking. (I also have to do cleaning and gardening and stuff, but I'd rather not talk about that.) So, I had this idea that instead of spending my day talking to myself, maybe I could find others to chat to. Anyone else out there feel the same way?

Hi, I am 80, live in Winchester, Kentucky and my life is much like yours. Am alone most of the time my husband is on dyalisis and runs around most of the time when not on dyslisis. Would really like to chat about whatever is of interest to both of us. I am interested in politics, religion, football for beginners. Hope to hear from you, Gtrechen

Hi! I'm my Father's caregiver and stay pretty much close to home Its easy to get a little lonely and isolated, so I can kind of relate to how you feel.

Hi, I'm 58 and live in Sunderland. I'd love to make some new friends, doesn't matter where you live, can always chat on here if you're too far away.

I live alone now that my 2 daughters have left home, but am very close to them.

I love to travel, have been to various countries around the world.

I drink very, very little alcohol but like to go out to nice restaurants.

Would love to hear from some of you.
