Go to your nearest Senior Center, they would love to SEE you. Too many predators online, it is best to be seen in person.
Really, a "pen pal" is a great idea, I would also enjoy a person to talk to online. I am not a predator, just a old lady trying to take care of my stubborn old Mom. Just be careful and dont give any secure info out, how could that be a bad thing?
onlyme feel free to private message any of the posters on the forum to see if they would like to correspond privately with you.
Wait a while and get to know the people here and see who you think might share your interests.
One has to be careful of people who are *catfish* which means they lure you to trusting them then start to ask for money and material things.

Recently on Dr. Phil, one 60+ year old woman thought she had met the man of her dreams [never actually met him, this was all via email], and over time she gave him over $1m [yes, one million dollars] thinking some day they will finally meet and get married. It was all a scam.
This is the best site to communicate with like-minded folk that I have found. I was on another 'help' group and the women were MEAN. I am so glad to have found this group.

Keep the conversation going (or start a new one)
