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.
