      Hi all, new on here. 63yrs young living in northeast, Sunderland. Lost my hubby 9yrs ago, I’ve custody of 2 teenagers, so they keep me young and busy.  I live near my daughter, my best friend, and still lucky to have my mum, dispite all of this life is lonely.

      Hi Everyone, I’m Steve, 66 from Palmers Green in London. Unlike some of you on here, I don’t feel lonely, but I do recognise the comments about lack of structure to the week – I often have no idea what day it is! I am a member of our local Men’s Shed which is a great help in combating loneliness and, being a musician, have many friends of a similar age all feeling frustrated at not being able to perform live music at the moment!

        Hi…..I’m Barbara and live in Scotland ….never know what the weather is going to be….one day I’m wearing a heavy raincoat and next day next I’m wearing light jacket…..they say that there will be a period of really warm weather round the corner….we will see, however, I enjoy walking no matter what the weather is like and as I have a small dog there is no choice…..keeping busy is the key…

      Yes agree, Sunday’s are the worst day for me. Happy to chat with anyone on here. I’m female by the way

      I’m happy having met a new friend through this site. But it was always Sunday evenings that was the worst for me.  But just one thing I think is difficult is there are lots of people,  myself included that have names that are not gender specific,  maybe it would be better if we could at least identify our gender,  then hopefully everyone will feel safe knowing who they are talking to.  So I am a man and I login as munnsy.

        Hi Seabreeze. I am 62 and like you would like to meet new friends. Online is ok but nothing beats real world contact. That is what is missing for me. What area are you in? I am in North Hampshire near Andover and would love meet anyone for a coffee somewhere

        Weekends are always the worst

        • Reply by anitaburnett

          I agree, weekends are the worst when you live alone – it’s far too quiet.

          With lockdown I never know what day it is now….. not too bad though, feeling blessed that everyone I know is well and now coming out of lockdown.

        Hi.,  seabreeze , I think many of us on this site feel as you do, especially, with the lockdown going on as well. I too have been living alone since my husband died thirteen years ago. I do a lot of craft and belong to several groups but of course the meet ups are now outside in the park as most of the premises we used, are still closed. I live near one of my daughters and family now but they have just returned to work or school. Hopefully thongs will improve when the virus goes down a bit.
