Now I remember why I didn't post to this discussion .. the link goes to a website that doesn't let me see anything, without turning off my ad-blocker! Smiley Sad

Hi Diane,thanks for posting this

I  have a group of  friends who I consider my 'extended family' since my siblings don't live here. One couple in particular, Marcia&Dave are my closest friends,she is my 'emergency contact'.They 'adopted' me 6 yrs ago,I do lots of things with them. Their youngest son,Alexei{age 27} is my 'movie buddy'.

I like having my own schedule,do things when I want to do them.

I've only had 1 credit card,don't see the reason to have any more Sue

 


Hi Sue

Awwww that is so nice.  Man Very Happy

@nyadrn  An older  study of centenarians had many women who never married  as participants!  Not surprisingly most of the participants were women.  The take away was that the old ladies took good care of themselves most of their lives. The few men who survived to 100 did not worry much about such stuff as eating right & exercising.  Marriage did not affect their longevity either.


Hi  nice to hear from you!

 

I guess women figure there will be no one to take care of them if they don't take care of themselves!  Thank you for sharing!

Although numerous studies tout the health benefits of being in a relationships, not many people talk about all the ways being single can have a positive impact your health. 

We've rounded up all the best ways that maintaining your relationship independence can make you healthier. After this, you maybe just want to delete your dating profiles for good.
