I think that is a very personal question and each person must decide for him/herself. If the median and the average are widely different numbers, then that tells you there is a disparate distribution of ages. If they are similar, then it is more a bell curve distribution.

Default Retired singles Tootsie Wootsie


I went back to http:[URL="http://www.retiringsingles.com"]Retiringsingles.com RetiringsinglesOverseas.com[/URL] and they have updated their site.

They promise bigger and better things. I would go in there and you can write an article, blog, post photos, etc. You can even put classified ads in there.

I believe its all FREE.

Hope that helps.

NancytheReader: I would say that depends upon your own perspective. To my daughter who is 18, an old community would be people in their 40s. To my grandmother, those would be kids.
Hi NancytheReader! For some reason, I didn't remember that you have a daughter the very same age as mine! If we end up in the same area, that would be cool! You're so right about those perspectives!

I am not single, but I am researching places to retire. It's possible that you are familiar with the magazine, Where To Retire, but I am posting this because the magazine does feature articles on where to retire if you are single. The magazine is sold at bookstores, many libraries have a subscription, and they have a website. I pulled three old issues and here are some of the articles:

Singles: Finding a place to fit in

How to Make Friends & Find your niche

Active Adult Communities that Welcome Singles
Eeewww, now that sounds gross. "Welcomes singles," makes it sound like they're doing us a favor…. Or maybe they mean the "single men," since the women outlive them!

Guess we have to sort through this stuff....
