Yes paid sites are better than free. I find even when you’re a paid member, there are many timewasters still. Our time and match have quite a lot of duplicate members. There are many over50 dating sites but still too many 50plus singles. Just wondered if anyone has had any luck wth the over 50 dating sites. Even if you’re near to singles by location it’s still hard to find a partner. Daz
Yes the Covid has affected my health too. Each day seems the same. Everything is online, I like to meet pple and do classes in person. Whereabouts are you Jules in UK. Mostly all activities have to be done from home. Daz
I am also struggling to find a job too. Can I ask what job are u looking for. Royal Mail and the Census are recruiting for temp staff. There are jobs in the care sector ie care worker. Volunteering would be good to get some experience.
Hello I agree employers are ageist in most cases. Thy sometimes pick a younger person bec thy will pay less for them, thy feel a young person fits the company’s image better. Also there are too many 50 plus unemployed before the covid crisis.
USA I think is better for over 50 employment. I think in USA there is, law stopping over 50 discrimination. But I’m sure USA some states are youth obsessed so problem there. I dnt understand how pension age keeps increasing you’re expected to wrktill u drop. Yet so much ageism. V sad in uk so many over 50s forced on benefits for several years bec of ageism, soul destroying. Over 1 million over 50s unemployed wrong.
You could contact your local ms or the national ms organisation and ask how you can help, perhaps telephone befriending and have a look at do something good website. Obviously you should only undertake wht u can manage. Daz
The cat is v lucky to hve you. It is probably nervous and may hve not been treated well in the past,maybe that’s why it doesn’t like you touching it. I feed two stray cats in my garden. They dnt like me touching them.
