People are everywhere in front and behind you. They want to get to know you. Will it be love,lust or another let down?  Only through enthusiasm,humor and kindness do we ever connect.  Slowness in connecting always ends relationships before the first hello.

On this community site You can put your Bio in your profile

Which I did & I check others info to find out their name by clicking on community ID 

So far I've not come across any others that posted their Bio but do find their names to get to know others. 

Also its nice that you can send private messages through this community have chatted with some folks there plus can chat with Community Helpers also. 

Have a beautiful week!

Hey Sophia 

No AARP Dating site

From other topics I've read they once tried it but required alot to maintain & took away from the goals AARP had in mind 

 

I've watched this topic for while no posts then today discovered many had posted

Some great suggestions  & experiences posted Thanks

 

I tried online dating 2 men met not good experiences As another posted just don't think its my kinda thing 

Have been blessed to make some friends on this community for which I'm grateful 

Reckon I need to get more out there cause they are not going come knocking at my door

After decades marriage  ended

Because of some circumstances don't desire get married plus in this last 5 years working on myself and living alone 1st time in life I enjoy my time alone and with my family and friends 

I would love to have a companion to hang out with Eat and  travel & do things together 

I hold hope for meeting someone maybe even in this community I've seen winners of Sweeps that live near my location.... Anything is possible as long as open to believing 

Good luck everyone & thanks for sharing your thoughts and hopes 

Ginger  : )

Thank you for this insight. I lost my boyfriend of 30 years to a hit and run bicycle accident last July, and have been paralyzed ever since. Same as you, healthy, professional, active inquisitive mind, but this just knocked me down. He was my rock and soulmate. Had plans to travel extensively after I retire this year.  Now what?

What a great story lindag237909 (not the cancer, of course).  I like to read stories like yours.  Proof that there are still those of us (the senior community) that are still finding their "happy endings".
