Sometimes life unfolds in a way that we didn’t see coming, not always, but sometimes. And of course there are other times when splitting apart is inevitable. The point to all of this is being alone later in life.

How many of us don’t mind living alone? It’s an adjustment for some after being with your spouse/partner for a very long time. But for others (probably like myself) I would long for companionship. Not even suggesting a romantic companion, but a companion to share breakfast with. Someone to watch a movie with you or come along to your doctor visit. Maybe take turns cooking dinner or having a dinner party with all of your friends.

There are several women I have conversed with in the past who would like to try shared living with another woman. Share expenses, share a house, a car, but mostly to share the quiet moments together.

There must be organizations all around the world, including where GreyFeather’s readership hail from — United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, Italy, all parts of South America, South Africa, Pakistan, India, Australia, New Zealand, etc.

I have often thought about putting this feature on my website, GreyFeathers.com: a ‘want ad’. “Have house will rent.” “Need house will travel.”  “Seeking same-sex living companion.”

If this is a feature you think would be helpful for yourself, a friend or GreyFeathers’ ladies in general, I will create forms to help try to match likes/dislikes (such as a college dorm survey to find the right roommate) and take it from there.

  1. Great concept. But….I can see a Big Bang episode whereby Sheldon (in his old age) requires a contract to rule out any possible misconceptions/misunderstandings and the responsibilities thereof. Would have made for a great episode.

  2. Great idea.
    Many of us will be forced to live on a lower income when we lose our mates. My best friend and I have decided to live together if that time comes. But we do not know what tomorrow will bring.
    Thanks Grey Feathers

  3. it’s a wonderful idea!!! When this came up on your link before, I was amazed there were so many women seeking living arrangements and so many different ideas.

  4. Yes, this is the need of modern times when grown up children leave their parents and they have to on their own in old age –
    I would love to live with a female companion . That would be great , in fact.

  5. Yes; in today’s economy as well as in a society where “family” may be separated by thousands of miles, the “golden girls” concept is practical for so many reasons!

  6. Yes! Some of us are on a limited income and sharing space would make life more comfortable. I would love to share space with a quilter.

  7. Love this idea! I think you could even expand the idea in a sort of Airbnb situation where you welcome someone compatible for a lengthy visit to share your part of the country, and vice versa. I for one would love to travel to a bucket list of places, Ireland, Scotland, England, etc and would be open to sharing central Illinois and surrounding states with others. I’m not widowed yet, but I think the idea has great merit, both for companionship and for temporary visits as well.

  8. I have said for years there should be accommodations for older single adults to live together sharing a house with shared responsibilities. It would give companionship and a sense of purpose as well as form new friendships. It’s a great idea.

    1. The situation you suggest, I read an article in the Arizone Republic (I think) several years ago that is being done in the Phoenix area. I thought it was a great idea.
