Still, listen to how carefully the author goes about it: "I wouldn't have any friends left if I were just a ruthless scavenger of other people's lives. Well, I am that," she concedes, "but I'm also a lovey-dovey girl.
I love people, and I am naturally nurturing. I guess you could say I have the qualities to be a good friend, but not a good wife: I'm macho, bossy, and controlling.

And she's cool with that. I have been divorced for 20 years and enjoyed being alone. Then my parents got sick and I spent the last 8 yrs taking care of them until they passed. Now, I am missing the company. My two dearest friends passed away a couple years ago. We had all these plans to go places and do things together once we were retired. I retired in , so immediately signed up for classes at the senior center to keep busy. Evening and nights are still tough. I find it hard to do things solo, but my goal is to get over it.
I hope you do try yoga. It helps me so much. I went to a seminar about PRP and stem cell injections for the knees. People raving about the results as an alternative to replacement. I hope you get a cat. Animals are a lot of company. If you ever want a pen pal or a shoulder… I am here! CJ Portland Oregon. Im in a relationship…but he had a brain bleed. A couple of years ago.. He is not the same!!! Its like I am by myself!!! And i have a brother and sister-in.. To a uncaring person. They all live far from me now.
So I am alone…my mom and dad are gone… Miss them terrible!!! It seems my life is SO lonely. My boy died less than a month ago, if not for my girl I do not know what i would do. I have one best friend who is now in Florida. I am from New York City originally. I just want a friend I was thinking of a room i turned into a computer room back to a bedroom and look for somebody to share it with. Golden Girls 2 where are you lol.
I spend a lot of time on facebook. Just found this blog tonight. Hi there your lifestyle is very much like mine. Hello Susan, So, so sorry for your loss. Quite a void. A family member he was and boy, do the years go by f-a-s-t!!! Was medical for years, like y-e-a-r-sss and how I enjoy the peace and quiet that retirement brings. A house is not a home unless a pet resides in it. My philosophy!. In short, may sound funny, but I was an only child and now age 69y. Grew up with older parents and their older circle. From early morning, preparing for the day, walking my darling pet, walking club, gardening club, reading-news of the world and so on.
I have a small circle of friends, we gather X1 week, they are all seniors with their own situations and so it goes. How I see it…….. One can be as alone OR lonely as one wants to be.

I have been alone since Last thing I want is a man around! Best friends died a year apart. Hi Susan! Sorry for your loss; it sounds like a good idea for revamping a spare room. Just be careful. I am alone as well.
I just need to find some friends. I can easily talk to people at the park and they sit and talk to me but nothing ever comes of it. I never run into them again.

There are women my age where I live but they never seem to want to do anything but talk about others. I would love to meet a few friends I can get together with and becomes close friends to do things with. My eyes are just not what they use to be. I love to go out to eat lunch, go to the movies, go to festivals or just about anything. Everything is fun when you have someone to share things with. Please let me know where you are in NC. Perhaps we can meet and get to know each other.
Good luck meeting others. Hi Susan…Where in MA are you. Good movies coming up.
Maybe we could meet halfway. I am friendly and often chat with others but I seldom see them again. I feel like I am in grade school, lol. I hope to find friends outside my housing. I still want to see and try new things. It is definitely more fun with a friend. I hope you find a friend, Kristina, and all others in search of friendships as well. Hello I just found this group. I am 73, my husband died in December and although I have sons and grandchildren they hardly ever come to see me.
I live in a studio apt.

I am OK during the day but at night I feel so lonely, miss my husband and my 2 very good friends are sick with cancer. I have other friends but they are younger, still working and married. I find myself feeling sick because I feel old and isolated and lack the motivation to go out by myself and do anything.
