I ask because I am male of older age. Would love to chat online with someone who would also. Don't get me wrong I can handle Gran chat just boys talk would pass the time as well in these lonely days. Maybe I'm in the wrong forum-I don't know. Perhaps there are Grandads here.


Suggestions appreciated.

Welcome Omits01 There are gentlemen here and I'm sure they will wade in soon but in the meantime you are very welcome to chat with all of us.

There are quite a few men on here who are grandads, and also men who are not grandads.
It's a very inclusive place.

I think there are a couple of men around.
Apparently the name gransnet includes grandfathers (though I can't see how.
Hello anyway smile

The forum could be called “Grandad’s Shed”.

There is a Grandad's Shed board on here Calendargirl.

Only a few men on here who actually post, and if you look under forum headings there is a Grandad’s shed....try putting a comment on there?
Even better, engage in chat with everyone😃

Not sure I’ve ever visited Grandad’s Shed!

Rufus2 recently started a thread of jokes at , if you would like to see some of his posts, Omits01. I think the jokes came from Greatnan, so the quality is good.

Other male posters to look out for are Grumppa and Spangler and I think Lefthanded, among others. Grandad1943 left recently, I don't know why. You will be welcome as another male contributor.

Grumppa Yes you did, once, 2 years ago! You stuck your head in the door to ask if there was anything in it for you! Apparently not, 'cos you never came back! hmm

Do you know any good jokes? No? Neither does he!! grin
Jane I know a funny joke when I see one and I know you, don't I ? And I thought we were friends.
You'll keep! grin
Perhaps there are Grandads here
Omits You're very welcome!
Yes! There are still a few, albeit members of an endangered species and you can understand why looking at the banter going on around us! A thick skin and a sense of humour, risque or not, will afford good protection. grin
You're not a Scot by any chance?
Good Health and welcome!
