Hey Everyone!  I'm Teresa and excited to join and meet new people!  Connecting with others is fun and sharing expands us all.  I live in Colorado and love socializing and being active.  We just had our first snow and I managed to save my tomato plants from the freeze.  Hope to hear from you!

I just found this forum and decided to introduce myself. I'm a physically-fit, energetic, 75-year-old, single Black female. I retired a few years ago from a computer company after 20+ years as a Software Test Engineer. I'd love to meet a male companion with whom to share existing interests or make new ones together. My top three are Philadelphia Eagles football, club-style Scrabble, and smooth jazz. I currently volunteer as an AARP Tax Aide and AARP Driver Safety Instructor.

I did finally sell my house. I moved to Texas. I love the hot weather and sunny skies. At this late stage in my life, I am enjoying my adventure of learning my way about town. And, I look forward to making new friends.

Hi Mary,

I'm TL and also a newbie.  Where in the Midwest do you live?  I am also newly retired and also newly single.  After 20+ years, I just gave up trying to make a relationship with a very self-centered person work, so I moved out & quit my job.  There just didn't seem to be any point to either anymore.

I love cats, nature, scary movies and good friends!  Would like to correspond if we find anything in common!

Hello all.  I just joined the Online Community to learn from many of you. I appreciate your knowledge, tips and experiences.  I'm 56, single woman in Southern California.  Would love to meet new friends, both male and female.  Certainly open to possibility of heterosexual dating with like-minded men in the same age group.  Anyone?

Hello all - I'm Joshua J. Mark. I've just joined and am only now looking around the site to see what it's about. I'm a retired college professor (philosophy, history, and literature) and history/travel writer. I write for Ancient History Encyclopedia and Timeless Travels Magazine and also contribute articles freelance to other periodicals. I live with my daughter, two dogs, and four cats in rural upstate New York. 

 

AARP site seems quite interesting thus far. Nice meeting you all and I wish you all the best - Josh

Hi, I'm Tracy from California, outside of Los Angeles.

I'm not quite a newbie in that I retired 1.5 years ago, but I don't get to this site often so am a newby to this. In fact I attempted to repsond to this a few minutes ago, but when attempting to spell check a word, lost the entire response. Argh!

I love being retired because of the freedom of time that I have. I usually can come/go as I please because I am single with two crazy cats and no-one to be responsible for.

Mondays I volunteer at a shelter with shy/ferral cats, and on Wednesday I do fun things with my 4 yr old grandson, while on Friday I usually do something interesting with an old work friend of mine. 

I'm religious and attend mass weekly, and I'm currently involved with a group during Lent, learning more about the mass. Fascinationg to learn how people raised in the same religion often view it differently.

Politics became an interest after the 2016 election, and I don't mind listening to opposing views, as long as they respectfully voiced. I find that lecturing or using brain washing tactics is not only rude but a turn off. But I like to know why people feel as they do.

I'm off to a funeral for an elderly gentleman shortly and then will socialize with the kitties before gardening.

I hope this response goes through.

Lastly, I don't check in here daily but do respond when alerted that someone has contacted me.

Hope you have a fun day.

Sir Granny Tracy

Ahoy -

Yes, I am Real!

I live in Lincoln City, OR, and rand for City Council, this last election.

Came in 3rd out of 3, lol; at least I know I have a couple of hundred friends in town, lol.

I don't hang out on this site, but I got a notice in my Email, and just happened to look in on it, this time around.

Bummed out about the Govt Shutdown, and now Prez has gone too far, wanting to keep it closed.

As long as we seniors are not affected --- but there, one day, could be a "Grey Panther March" on the Capital!

Happy New Year to all, savvy.

Capt Jack Sparrow
