I retired at FRA after working in NYC for twenty-five years; built a new house in SC to be near my son and grandkids.
After almost two years I am ready to put house on market and move. Being two miles near my son is too close - I know more than I want to know! In a development and everyone is married.
If you are a single woman, do not retire because the world belongs to married people. I am lonely, bored, and have become a couch potato. Been through the "group" things and, again, all couples; tried the gym (boring); and all I do is drive! I guess I should have looked for a more walkable, accessible city. This is okay, but the days are long. Travel with some photography groups, but that is not something you do on a daily basis.
Hope the house sells and I just might buy a small RV and keep on driving!
Work till you drop.
