Hello. I just joined today so thought I would say who I am I am lucky enough to live in Northern Ireland and don’t intend to ever change that.

At 79 I am not as fit as I used to be but still get around . My wife of over 50 years died five years ago of dementia which is not fun

After a lonely time I was lucky to meet a lovely lady from about four miles away who had lost her husband a few years ago

Those in a similar lonely state, don’t be afraid of online dating sites.

They work but you must be careful and watch out for plausible scammers. Probably gone on far too long

Sorry but you could have given up earlier!

Hi Ben,
I've only joined today too with a little trepidation but my son persuaded me in the end. I'm in my sixties, been widowed for 21 years and it gets very lonely. It'll be nice to chat with others.
