Am getting on in years, but brain working perfectly, though legs are not as good.Have a lovely dog, we have just each other at home.Once you’re ready to dive into the world of online chatting all that’s left to do is find a chat room and sign up. Right now I'm starting Faye Kellerman's Killing season. Located in Nevada, USA but have always loved England since I lived there as a child for 3 yrs (father in Air Force, stationed at Weathersfield AFB in the early sixties). My hubby still works full time but I am retired and have no neighbours to chat to.
Trying new things and joining clubs, societies and other groups is a great way to get out there and meet new people, but if you live in a rural area, have restricted mobility or don’t have access to the right transportation or opportunities to socialise in your community, it can be more difficult to connect with others in your age group.

I'm a lady in her 60's with grown sons and grand children. Also hang in there, hang tight, Hi Ena C, I'm also in my 60' and have never joined a group before.

I should also mention that i am in my mid seventies but definitely not a member of the Sixties appreciation society!
To connect with a broader group of people of all ages and backgrounds who share your interests and passions, Yahoo Groups is a very popular service and is easy to use to discuss everything under the sun. He pays all the bills but it worries me that if any thing happened to him I would not know where to start.
Finally, if you’re looking to form offline relationships by meeting people online, try Meetup – this site is specifically designed to help you connect with people in your community to get together and try something new. All these things worry me and I 'have' tried to talk to him about them but he will not budge.
