Retired Singles

Group Created by ConeyIsBabe

Now that you have retired from work, either because of years/age eligibility or health issues, what do you plan on doing the rest of your life? It's easier when you have a built-in support system as a married couple, but starting a new life as a single person is more daunting. Do you plan on relocation? Where? How do you make new friends? Let's share ideas. Are you counting the days to retirement? Wannabees are welcome to join this social group and share your concerns. Please post something to keep our group on the top of the list. Please post your favorite photos !

    Hello! I found this group and am interested in corresponding with other "retirees".

    I'm retired for health reasons, and finding the emptiness unsettling. Lack of challenge is making me lazy!

    Karibear...... YES, here in s/Oregon it is somewhat less hot than last year. In fact I'm COLD inside the house and haven't used the a/c much either, this year.

    Well, I always look forward to the beautiful fall season but the long cold winter is not a welcome event. Maybe I'll go visit Florida or AZ this winter

    Where is everybody ?

    It is, and amazingly enough, it's not as hot as it was last summer. I only had the A/C on for a week so far this year.

    Dear All, I am looking for people in your situation, as we urgently need to find a home for a 1 year old male cat that came to our backyard (a poor guy who had been kicked out from a home). We call him Walter; he is very affectionate with people but very territory with other cats. Walter tested FIV positive (similar to HIV but not transmittable to humans or other species). We can't leave him outside as he defends "his home" against any other cat. Do you live in the Tri-State area and look for an (animal) great companion? Walter might be your best bet! Walter can stay until the end of this week at our neighbor's in a cage (our house is already full with 6 cats... all strays that were sick and there is not one single room left :-). If we don't find a place for him we will have to put him down. Not fair, as he is healthy besides his FIV status! If you or one of your friends are interested please leave a message that I can contact you. Thanks The Cats' Advocate

    To answer your Q, MN2CO, I headed back to FL for several reasons.... partly for the warm weather, and I also missed the many choices the big city offers, including more job opportunities, and I also missed some old friends, which I have discovered are not easily replaced! I am open to making new ones, of course, but I know these things take time Miami could be just temporary for me again, until I discover what other nice towns FL has to offer! Any good suggestions are appreciated!

    Well, well....a mom & daughter team - how interesting! Now, Coney, I know why you wanted to move back to FL. And TrulyJaicee, why did you leave OR and head back to FL - miss it?

    WELCOME newbies & welcome daughter!! It was very quiet in this Social Group for so long - and now a flurry of new single retirees and new posts

    Right now, I'm dealing with a problem with Qwest on "intermittent connection" which continues to dump me off line at various times during the day. I guess I'll have to sign up with some wireless internet server and hope that will be better. Anyone have wireless?

    The best way to make friends on these forums is to participate often and share lifestyle tips. I can post some more photos but don't want to be the only one hogging the group album and I'll try to compose instructions for posting photos for those who need it.

    Well, what a small world! Here I am ,,perusing this fine web site in search of new friends and fresh insight on the topic of single retirees and who should I stumble upon but my mother, from across the country... LOL! How are you, ConeyIsBabe For all others, I'm in Florida, Miami now, but looking for that wonderful town in FLA somewhere that might exist where people are friendly and there's lots of culture and activities for an active (40's) single. Any good suggestions out there? I'm open to future relocation! Thanks!

    I have never figured out how to post photos. My solution has been to email them to someone else and let them do it for me. Unfortunately, I removed a program from my computer and it took along something from Picasa, so now my photo collection is a lot more difficult to get to!
