New member looking for guidance

Hi I am 70 odd year old male from County Durham, not well versed in all this networking...( a real understatement!) and trying to make sense of it all! I can't even get started, been trying to find out how to chat with no success what so ever! Is there an easy way that I cannot see? I would dearly like some help!

Hello Sam, It's my first time on here too and I'm hoping to make some new friends. You say that you come from County Durham does that make you a Geordie?

It would be lovely to get two likes and then I could chat. Please if you see this post anyone a like would be much appreciated, thank you.

Thank you for your welcome, all I need is two likes apparently, hope I have them soon.

Hi. I'm not sure you need likes but if you do I hope this helps. I'm afraid these forums are a bit slow in terms of responses but stick with it. I got a comment on a post I made a few months ago which is why I came back to silver surfers and am looking through to see if there is anything useful I can contribute. Good luck with finding a few people to chat with.

Hello and thank you for your input. I will take your advice and stick with it. I really should fill in my profile, perhaps that will help. I have found the lockdown extremely taxing and then the re-emergence back into the world again. Have you found it so? I live in the Lincolnshire Wolds - very pretty - but I hail from Yorkshire originally (Leeds) and always a Yorkshire girl at heart.

I am in the same position, I joined ages ago but even in lockdown, I found it difficult to navigate, so trying to get involved in these chats and hope something sinks in.
How have you managed in lockdown? I managed by walking a lot, tv and huge amounts of books plus gardening, in fact so much gardening I now can hardly move with sciatica,

I feel your pain with the sciatica, if only it was just that!
My late grandmother always used to say, 'as long as you've got ya health!' Well, that's me buggered!

Look up to the blue bar. You will see a chat button. You must have 2 approved posts though.
