I'm Enjoying the Chat Room I must say so far my experience here at Senior Chatters has been a wonderful one indeed.
Those I reached out to with friendship requests accepted immediately and wrote me such encouraging messages to welcome me to the site.
And just like younger people, most are turning to the internet to do so.
Connie, 83, from London has just signed up for a dating site, even though she can’t work a computer.
Solange, 79, from Wales told us: “I might have been in my 40s when I had an inkling of what it was. Solange added: “My take on older men right now is that they’re looking for a housekeeper or a care-giver, neither of which roles I am prepared to take on.” And so living apart seems to be a growing trend among older people trying to keep things fresh.
