Sue, aged 64, living in Birmingham UK

Hi, I live in Birmingham UK and I would love to have some female pen friends. I am 64 years old and retired from work a year ago.

I am missing the company of my work colleagues, and realise that due to many years of working full time I don’t have many friends, as I was always too busy. Now that I have more time on my hands I would love to chat to other women who share a similar interest in sewing and crafts (and others too even if you have different hobbies).

I’m far from an expert on sewing, but just love making things and I am a hoarder of fabrics. I have four grandchildren and love their company. I do enjoy reading but give the sewing priority usually. I like to travel when I can afford it and also enjoy days out visiting places of interest.

I am just an ordinary person, with everyday interests who would love to hear from others about their lives. I am in a happy relationship with my partner, but he prefers his home life to going out, so I would also like to meet people who live nearby for coffee and chats on occasions.

If you want a pen friend in the UK or a companion for occasional meetings please send an email to missminniemay at hotmail.co.uk

Finish Epiphany

by Jon K

Conversation in America:

>> Hey. How’s it going?

<< Can’t complain.

>> Wouldn’t do any good anyway.

<< No, guess not.

>> Nope.

<< Nobody wants to hear it.

I will be 65 years old this year. I think that I need to communicate with someone my own age, preferably from Iceland.

The epiphany:

Today’s gestalt on the subject of positive and negative attitude +

Old Movie: “2001 - A Space Odyssey”, Saul Bellow’s Herzog antihero, Holocaust song “Dona” Thus Spake Zarathustra

I live alone since divorce proceedings. First one knee became painful with arthritis. Then the other knee. Which means near immobility; and chronic pain whenever I am not horizontal.

Welcome to getting old.

This could be a “Fate Worse Than Death” Vonnegut book. Like being knee capped from the Mafia. But unexpectedly I find an awareness I was previously blind to.

Disabled people = Invisible.

Does this mean I will just sink into self pity, give up, and whine the rest of my days away? Hardly. My mood is more like a “gallows humor”.

Humor has always been a huge part of me anyway.

However I can not abide the usual pretensions that carry the expectation one “have a positive attitude” & “put on a happy face”.

If I am going to know the meaning of “have a positive attitude”, I must come to it authentically and spontaneously.

Floating around in the club pool quite a while. No one is making eye contact. Look up into the sky. To my astonishment I notice high up, bird shaped specks flying in formation and aggressively dive bombing one another. Like WW I dog fights.

What are those?! They don’t act like birds. Not like airplanes either. Perhaps hang gliders? Or radio controlled model planes? I watch a long time. Everyone else in the pool seems to be in their own small ? world.

I lay my head back on the Styrofoam noodle flotation and continue watching the show until all the dots fly away. Later they come back again. I recall swimming with dolphins at Dolphins Plus in the Florida Keys.

“I am not a creature of the sky, but have tremendous respect for those who are especially helicopter pilots.

I am a creature of the water.” Incredible Dolphins. Swimming with them feels like family. They even gather for a family photo see attached.

Then I think of the song we learned in summer camp, first written by children in the Nazi concentration camps, so I hear:

“On a wagon, bound for market, there’s a calf with a mournful eye. High above him, there’s a swallow, winging swiftly through the sky:



There is a REAL ‘ + attitude!’

My email is still a mess. The address is: electrojon At att.net. Don’t know how to access it though.

Update: recently have had some success accessing email.

We deserve a break today.

Charles H, 65, Beacon, New York

by Charles H
(Beacon, New York, USA)

Hi Fellow Seniors:

I thought I'd give this a try. My name is Charles and I just turned 65, 1/4. I work as a Vocational Rehabilitation Specialist for the US Department of Veterans Affairs. I'm single, although married, but my wife lives in Albama, along with my daughter and 4 grandkids.

I love movies, music, writing (I'm working on a novel), I've been published 3 times. I'm looking for friendship, male or female. I love to travel and visit my time-share in the Poconos and essentially meeting new people. Life gets kind of lonely, but I keep myself occupied through adversity, but if you remember what Shakespeare said about adversity: Ugly and venenous like the toad, yet wears a previous jewel in his hair.

Hoping to hear from somebody,

Old lady of 75 FINALLY RETIRING - Would like a pen pall.

by Ellie C

My main career was as a Deputy Marshal in the state of California. Had to have a sense of humor working with all those men. Back in those days there were not many female deputies. It was a great career though.

I worked at different jobs since then. I am giving it up. Want to retire before I can't move around. Ha

Would love to hear from females or males who are retired. I have a son who has 3 kids, and two of them have 2 kids each, sooooooooooooooo am a greatgrandma. Love it.

Do some traveling. Have a younger brother in Texas. Had a bad stroke and in a home. My sister and I are going down there in May. Have a twin brother here in California. My sister lives in Oregon. That's about it not to exciting but I am sure we could find something to talk about.

How do you get there, from here? (Empty Nester Dad)

by Pete
(Montpelier Vt)

Hello, fellow retirees. I am very very new to this site, but just having found it will give you some idea how much I sifted through the Internet to get here.

It's a relief to have some possibility to hook up with someone else, Someone who understands how being retired is. The need to find resources and contacts so we can arrest the slow isolation some may have experienced. I certainly have been fighting it off for a long time.

I have been a single Dad for the past 15 years. My youngest is now in his first year at college and this is the first time the reality of what the heck I'm going to do and imagine loneliness and boredom.

My story begins with having gone on disability in 1995. While in the earliest days of divorce. I wasn't doing well at all and sought out some medical advise and share my situation with our family physician. I didn't have any thought this condition would be long lasting. I was depressed, but it appeared to be situational and over time it would lift. It's been a real bugger.

Now at 59 soon to be an empty nester without a partner is a little scary. Honestly I don't have a clue. I have gotten really lazy and the things I enjoyed once Just do not give me any fulfillment. I suppose I need to find new things.

I search and search and nothing comes to mind. Just uninspired.

I know I need to change because at this point my health will be diminished rapidly if I don't do anything about it.

This is my story and I hope to find some news of others who might have some remedies or some similar experiences.

Bet - 62 yrs. old - USA

by Bet

I will be 62 tomorrow - can't retire just yet - but at least I have a good job to get me through the next 3 yrs. I am in good health (lost a kidney last year due to stones) but am doing great otherwise. I live in a rural area and enjoy the peace and quiet, but am limited on options for meeting people.

So, I decided to find some new online pen pals just to find out what others my age are doing in their retirement (lucky you) or still on their way to retiring.

I'd like to correspond with anyone who is willing to share their thoughts and stories.

SunnyDaze - Do you speak French?

by Annie
(North Carolina/USA)

Hello All,

I am a 65 yr. old female from NC (USA). Originally though a New Englander. I am working full-time not only 'cause I like what I do, but the money is pretty important too.

I am planning a vacation this coming June to Paris-will be on a riverboat cruise. I am so excited-haven't had a real vacation in a very long time. I have been trying to pick-up some French and so had hoped to find a penpal who speaks the language. Believe me, I am truly a novice, but I think it would be fun to be able to say hello, please and thank you in French.

I am married and have two grown sons. I love to read, knit and chrochet-though I am not an expert by any means. I do enjoy a good movie and good conversation and I love to learn something new. I think this is a good start. So I will close, but if you're interested in friendship, I can be reached at:

I really enjoy reading and scrapbooking as my favorite pastimes. I'm an animal lover of cats, dogs, birds---as of now I have been adopted by a cat named KittyKat , and have 2 parrots who are spoiled rotten. Spoiling them is the best part isn't it?

I do like to shop--love purses, enjoy flea markets, and yard sales.

Would like to meet and make new friends so if you think we have anything in common, hey drop me a line and I promise to answer you back.

Sheila White, 86, Cambridge, Ontario

Taking a break, sitting on my walker.

Taking a break, sitting on my walker.

I am looking for a penpal (obviously!), a man or woman near my own age who, like me, is still interested in life and in other people.

I live in a retirement facility and recently lost my husband (he died!) so am making a new life for myself, I love to write, all kinds of writing, not just letters or e-mails. I also write for this facility that produces two in-house publications, eight times a year. I (too many I's) have won awards for my work in newspapers and contests.

But don't let me give you the impression that I want a penpal so I can write all about ME, I like to learn about others and how they live and cope with setbacks. Writing short biographies about my fellow retirees is enjoyable and much appreciated.

I have three children, six grandchildren and two greats. Although I am proud of them, I don't dwell on their problems or achievements.

Lastly, I came to Canada from England in 1956 with two little ones and my husband. I never wanted to go back to stay.

Write to me if you find me interesting and I promise not to disappoint.

Love to Laugh

by Nina Yakimiuk
(London, England)

Maybe it's because it's winter and the weather is cold but I love finding funny stories, jokes or humorous cartoons. What brightens up my day is a laugh.

Finding some really interesting blog sites I'm sharing them with friends. One of them shows people in a special conference for people dancing the jig. Oh, yes!

My retirement has been interesting so far with travelling, painting, volunteer work and actively reading all those books I never had time to read. I'm a widow who originally comes from New Jersey but now I live in London. Incredible that I've been in England 27 years.

What I like is being able to keep in touch with people from all over the world. So hope to hear from male or female penpals.

Get in touch with ...note.to.nina at gmail.com

Until then...Always, Nina

Nancy, 70, Central Ohio


I am a retired RN. I had planned on working until I was 70, but at age 68 I became ill and am on oxygen 24/7 now.

I was also a jewelry designer and had a large website and frequently set up at fine art shows. I had cataract surgery 2 years ago and it caused me to lose my extreme close vision that I used when making my jewelry.

I have been trying to sort out & sell off many of my craft supplies. I have also done quilting, fine sewing, knitting, crochet, tole painting, leather carving, stained glass. I am an avid book reader.

I used to raise & show horses, dogs, & cats. I have 6 cats. Three Japanese Bobtails, 2 Burmese, 1 domestic. I am divorced and have a "domestic partner" who I met on the internet in 1999 and he is disabled.

We have no children, no close friends, and go many days without going farther than the local grocery store. We live at the outskirts of a very small town. Our house is on top of a hill surrounded on 3 sides by 4.5 acres of woods. It is beautiful, but difficult to take care of. I would love to have someone to talk with, both by email & telephone. my email is

Linda (39) - Looking to Help My Senior Father (85) Find Friends - New Mexico, Nebraska

Hi, everybody. My name is Linda, and I have an elderly father who is very lonely. His wife (my stepmother) passed away several years ago, and it broke his heart. Every day he asks me to help him meet someone to pass the time with, and I feel like I need to try.

My father is baffled by online friendship/dating sites, and I don't want to see him get hurt. So, if someone might like to meet him, please write to me at amitycloud at hotmail dot com.

My father is soft-spoken and very intelligent. He is a retired physician who loves nature, music, and creating things with his hands. Currently, he is living in Nebraska, and I am in New Mexico; however, he plans to move here to be closer to me sometime in the near future.

I would love to hear from senior women who might be interested in friendship and maybe more. Thank you so much.

Barb D, 62 ,Pa.

by Barb D

Hi, I am writing this on behalf of a friend I met on here. She placed her ad about a month ago wanting people to write. The only problem was she didn't leave an email. I found her address thru the white pages and have sent cards and letters. She gave me permission to add her email to this site so she can get some friends.

Her ad "Please help me or I will go crazy". I think the people who responded wanting her email would like to help. She is a shut in, widowed,
(very depressed) and from Cynthiana, Ky. Her name is Joanie and her email is kycountrygirl58 at hotmail.com .

She is really nice and needs some more friends. Hopefully some nearby. My email is beedee at pennswoods.net

by Claude
(Six-Fours les Plages)

I'd like to improve my English with someone who would like to improve his French.....
talking by Skype for instance, so we could correct each other immediately and exchange about the situation, about every topics : history, philosophy, economy .....and so on.

For that we have to speak enough the other language in order to have an interesting exchange.

If you are interested by this proposal....... your age, your sex, married or not doesn't matter ....... what matters is your will to learn french and the will to "play " the teacher for me..... as I"ll do for you.

This is a serious ad.
Thank you

Barbara, age 75, Michigan

by Barbara

I have a sincere interest in people, places and things. Have always had a thirst for knowledge. I hear often that my age is disbelieved but I have two sons, two daughters, ten grandchildren, six g.g. children and another on the way.

I collect angels, can't sit long enough for deep reading. Involved in community work, believe in giving back when and where needed. Not doing much right now, still healing from shoulder surgery. I enjoy CSI and NCIS on tv, morning devotions and when I feel like I need a lift I go to utube on my laptop and watch the babies learn about,life, dance and sing. Never fails to lift you to a joyful place.

I would dearly love to hear from some nice seniors. I talk a lot but have also mastered the art of "listening".

Thanks for reading,

ps can someone please tell me why I have to install "default mail client" on a brand new laptop? I need help and anxious to sign up for the email letters.
