Is anyone in this group alone or lonely? (most of you are married) August 07, 2004 8:31 PM
I am basically happy in most aspects except that I do not wish to grow old alone. Am I the only one in this group who has this lifestyle of being alone after age 50?
I have been alone so long that I do not think I could again give up my body or my life in order to mate again. Yet, I also yearn to have a life-mate, life-companion for the next 56 years of my life.
When I first read the posts of this group, I did not want to join or to speak, because everyone seems happy, wealthy (or well-off-enough), and married. I feel that the reason the membership of this group is so small is that the over-50 population who are not paired-up do not feel a place here (if they read the posts first). Most or everyone here seems to have approximately the same type of lifestyle, and therefore it is difficult for the rest of the over-50 to fit in here (is how I feel about it). This feels like a special little clique of people, and that is very nice. But surely there are others out there who wish to join if only they felt that there were others like them in the group?
Is there a group for people over 50 who are un-mated, or who have no incomes/low incomes, or who have no health insurance, or women who were traditional mothers and wives who preferred raising their own children over the choice of earning money?
Please let me know. Thanks.

by the title below...WEDDING BELLS ...I was alone, and yes, did NOT want to spend my last days alone. I cannot really say I was lonely, not in the strictest sense, as I have been mostly a LONER...and liked it. However, just met the right man at the right time, and well, you know the rest.
I have an email buddy in Canada who is about your age, divorced, single mom of two and she would like to meet someone, but finds that it is not easy to connect with the RIGHT male. Is she too picky, too set in her ways, or maybe just REALLY does not want to find another?..........who knows ...
You should be fine here. We chat about LOTS of topics besides partners and money....just jump in and post and try to have a good time.
