Friendship (will reply to you here .....)
#1
I am a 58 yo gentleman who is willing to share my life's journey and experiences with you (if you are willing to ask what's in your mind).

Let's set out our expectations first .....
1. I am single. Divorced in 4 yrs ago cos wife was having an affair.
2. I don't smoke or drink alcohol.... so may not be helpful if you want to discuss these issues.
3. If you are:
     a. Below 21 : talk about education
     b. 21 - 30 : talk about career
     c. 31 - 40 : family/children 
     d. 40 & above : retirement & other

I am at the moment traveling and may add interesting stories if I come across any. Just came back from Bangkok,  Thailand. 

See you.

I’m 50 and effectively retired under health grounds.

Retirement is a life on (piss poor) benefits.

Be positive and take a day at a time.

I had my retirement planned when I first started my career. At 54 yo had a medical misadventure that landed me in coma (2 years). Woke up and needed 1 year of physiotherapy  to help me reach this stage : walk, talk and drive. Had traveled to 3 countries since I recovered 60% of mobility.

You make a friend, well done.

Agreed. Better to be “well done” and a little crispy around the edges than raw in the center. Cool

I had a ‘friend’ from a shared house, first friend in years, possibly 20 years, but he was a foreign immigrant and went back to Romania, I don’t have any more friends from the shared house because I was kicked out and now live in a flat on my own.

All hope rests on the next door neighbour, but I can see that going tits up once she really gets to now me. I’ve got as much chance having a true ‘relationship’ with her as say Liberace.

Why?  If I may ask.  What's so off-putting about you?  You've had some bad luck, but it sounds like you know how to cope pretty well.
