Lonely and hoping to chat with like minded members

Hi everyone, I’m a 58-year-old man, I live in a small town near Stourbridge in the West Midlands, I am alone and a few health problems over the last few years, would just like to chat, I enjoy most things, it’s been a very tough year for everyone, living alone as been hard but as the new year starts would like to make friends and connect in the real world,

Thanks for reading, stay safe and well,

Hi there Strummer33. I'm a 71 year old retired lady in Tampa Florida. Where is West Midlands?

I'm originally from Chicago but hated the cold weather there. Florida is warm year round and I'm a lot more active since we moved here.

BarbaraB1949. Hi, I just happened to see your comment and that you live in Tampa. I live in St. Pete so we are practically neighbors. I've lived off and on in Florida.....originally from Ohio, and I moved here from Atlanta area. Thought I would say Hello!

Hello, is that town in England (Stourbridge)? I also am alone and it can be rough. One thing I've done that helped. Was to foster dogs/cats in shelters. That was interesting, and I now have two cats. They sleep most of the time, but I enjoy them when they are awake. I've also started painting again. I do takes up a lot of my time, I love it! Because of Covid 19, I don't go out very much. I live in Florida now so I don't have to contend with bad weather. I lived up North many years ago, and I have to admit I miss the snow? I can relate to your loneliness. I would love to hear about you, and the town you live in if you care to reply. Happy Holidays, and take care.
