I just joined today, and like several others had given up trying to find geniune people, until I accidentally, maybe desperately (lol) searched for chatrooms and found 50plus.
I am so heartened by your positive comments about this site. This is fantastic.
Covid, lockdowns, lockouts, masks, social distance rule, no travel and a whole pletheora of processes over the last 2 years has had the unhealthy consequences of disconnecting us from each other, especially those who live on their own.
I live near the city, which now has the unenviable reputation for the city that has endured lockdown for the longest period, in the world. Humm.... Not a reputation any place should aspire to.
So I am really looking forward to making friends, listening, contributing and chatting.
