Gransnet cafe

Welcome to the *Gransnet Café. This is a non-judgemental space for you to pop in for a cuppa with some virtual friends, seek out advice for a particular problem, or share an update on your life - important or trivial. Feel free to have your say and chat about your day, but please leave any arguments at the door. If you're struggling to find someone to talk to in real life, or are simply looking for a bit of a chat, this is the place for you.

Hello. Do any grandsetters know how to meet others locally please. Also is there any thing ongransnet about loneliness.

Depends where you live I expect. Various get togethers are organised by GN members. Someone makes a suggestion and others seem to join in.
Its not a formal GN thing though. Also there's GN local sites but some aren't very active.

As far as i am aware, if you go on forums and then meet up, anything which has been arranged will be listed on there. If you don't bind anything close to you pop something on. I bet there will be someone living in your local area

GlammakAZ59 are you asking a more general question about to meet people in your area. The usual answer is to join clubs, sports, leisure interests. It isn't easy. Have a look in your library for local information- it really depends on what interests you and what area you live in. Can you give us some clues?

Oh, i didn't think of the question like that, sorry

Thank you for the answers I'm not on here much so finding my way around I didn't,remember where to look for this post. I carnt really do much at the moment as im waiting for a operation on my shoulder, and suffer with osteoarthritis so i carnt walk to much. Ive been divorced for 6years I find it very lonely living alone,i have one close friend but she has teenagers at home still. Sad
