Single again in your 60s!

Single again in your 60s!

Wow, I’ve said it before, the bars/lounges has lost its glitter. It’s not the same glamorous atmosphere it used to be.

I realized last night that my other widowed friends and I are doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different outcome. I think if we continue to go to bars expecting to meet men, maybe we need to stop and think this over more.

BowlingPerhaps joining a bowling league or Golftaking golf lessons would create different results! LOL

It has been proven before….we have to get out of our comfort zone because what we are doing is not working. We need to try new activities that will put us in a different environment that will offer new opportunities!

BingoI think we are all burned out on the online dating thing too. What a dilemma! We are not ready for BINGO just yet. LOL

There is no insurance policy in life and no guarantee that we will make all the best decisions as we get older because we were not prepared to be widowed at such a young age. We are not a bunch of shy ladies so taking on a new adventure and exploring new avenues would be interesting. I’ll have to bring this topic up again soon……maybe tonight at yet another Singles Dance………….Ugh! I almost dread going. Well, the “People Watching” is very entertaining especially after the second drink! LOL

crosswordI’m sure men feel the same way too. So, what do you older single folks do for entertainment and please don't tell me Crossword Puzzles! LOL

Losing a Good Friend to Cancer.

Losing a good friend to Cancer is so sad. I just lost a very dear girlfriend and saying good-bye for the last time was very hard. I just want to say a very special Tribute to my friend, may God bless you and take good care of you-----Shirley Costanza! It will be a long journey for your loved ones to learn how to live without you. The pain is unbearable, I know. I pray for everyone who loves you.

Good friendships, is something you always want to keep forever because they are so special and make you feel special too. Even though life circumstances change, we lose touch for periods of time here and there, yet remain friends, as if a day did not go by at all. People move, change jobs, marriages begin, marriages end, new relationships begin, raising children and life takes on different twists and turns but if you have a healthy relationship to begin with, you will remains friends forever and we did just that!

Yet, ever wonder why sometimes we hold onto unhealthy friendships when we should learn to say good-bye to a bad friend that drains you of every ounce of energy you have. Why do we do that? Is it we do not want to hurt their feelings?

Great friendships may be few and far between, I've been blessed and lucky to cultivate a handful of good friends. However, nothing is forever with the roller coaster ride down life's highway. Things are constantly changing and nothing is guaranteed, neither is friendship. I will miss you Shirley!
