    Hi Beth,
    Great, there is life out there. Tell me a bit about yourself, where do you live? What sort of business and are you still running it or have you now retired? What are your interests?

    I am a bit older than you at 66, but in my head I am still 29, so very young at heart. I live with my husband on our narrowboat, having decided 18 years ago…[Read more]

    Hi Ceri, I can’t understand people who sign up for this sort of thing and then don’t use it. What can be done to promote it more? Unfortunately people like me use it for a while, but then you feel like your’re whistling in the wind and give up. I will try to persevere on this one, so any help would be appreciated. Pauline

    Hi Val, Where do you live, is it U.K. You sound very similar to me although I am probably a bit older at 66. Where are you going on holiday? We have just returned from China, see my post about it to learn more. Enjoy your break and keep in touch. Pauline

    Hi, Yes the site is good but we need more people to be active on it. I am a 66 year old wife, mother and grandmother, I love travelling and socialising. We have lived on our narrowboat for 18 years and travel down to Gloucester every summer to spend 2-3 months on the G&S canal. It would be lovely to be in touch with other likeminded people,…[Read more]

    Hi, I am posting in this group because none of the others seem very active. I have just returned from a fantastic holiday in China with my husband. It was absolutely wonderful. We spent 3 nights in Beijing, stood on the Great Wall of China, saw the terracotta warriors, visited a Panda sanctuary, climed 200 steps to the top of a beautiful…[Read more]

      Hi Pauline, I am 56 and looking for good friends myself, having been too busy running a business long hours before. Am interested in hearing from anyone who is articulate and interesting and chatty of a similar age.

          Hi Pauline. Nice to see your response, hope you are well and looking forward to Easter. Your lifestyle sounds very different and quite excfiting. I am in Essex, Clacton on sea, the stay at home type, go out for days, meals etc. Run various businesses but make sure it leaves me free time when it suits me. Love to play cards, read, tv, go out…[Read more]

        Hi, Beth. Hope you are very well. I’m Denise. I have just joined the group this morning. I am looking for to getting to know new friends. I live in Hadfield, Derbyshire. So, quite a long way from you. It’s a lovely place to live. Mostly rural. I am a single Mum to 2 fabulous daughters, Sarah (14) and Hannah (13). I am 50. Well 51 in a couple of…[Read more]

          Hello Denise, Like you I am seeking new friends. But most people seem to think that means you are desperate or that you already have dozens of friends, in which case you would not be looking. Unlike most women of our age I don’t have family, so my friends matter far more to me. I am happy to have a phone friend or a meet up friend IF they live…[Read more]

    Hi Sylvie,
    Wow, why would you need to go anywhere else, your cabin sounds idylic. Such a wealth of wildlife and nature right there for you. I bet you have fun with your kayaks, we did a trip up a salt river in a two man kayak when we were in the carribean, got really close up to iguanas, absolutely fascinating.

    We chose the trip to China really…[Read more]

    Hi Sylvie, thanks for responding.

    My first trip abroad happened quite by accident. I was in my mid 40’s in a new relationship and I was terrified of flying so had never done it. I bought a raffle ticket from the daughter of a friend and won a weeks all expenses holiday in Tennerife. I wanted to give it away but my husband persuaded me to go. I…[Read more]

    Hi, everyone, I have just joined fabafter50 not a clue what to do. I am 65 years old, wife, mother and grandmother. I enjoy life to the full, travel extensively and would love to hear from others with similar interests.

      Hi I’m new to this site also, I think that the articles are very good. I will try to find out how to request you as a friend. Jayne

      Hi Pauline – sorry it has taken me a while to get back to you, normally i keep up with these websites quite quickly. I don’t believe you do know me, but I live in Hampshire and work for a bank as a PA. Regarding holidays unfortunately I have had to cancel both our holidays as we have been told some rather worrying news on my husband’s health,…[Read more]

      Dear Pauline,
      It’s a pleasure to meet you. I am the 53 year old mother of two teenagers. I am not much of a traveller myself, but I certainly enjoy hearing the great stories travellers such as yourself have to tell. What were the circumstances of your very first trip?

          Hi Pauline,

          I loved the story of your first travel experience! How lucky is that, to win an all expenses paid holiday for your first trip. (That certainly eliminates the stress of travel planning.) Sounds like you must have been glad your husband convinced you to go after all! Personally, I love the rush of the airplane lifting off, and then…[Read more]

              China will be such a culture chock I’m sure, but it will be very exciting. The sights, the sounds, and the smells, everything will be so much different from what you know. Take it all in while you’re there… Having a photo of you and your husband taken on one the Great Wall of China, one the world’s seven wonders, what a great memento for your…[Read more]
