Growing old.... single and alone...
Is it more difficult for a woman, or a man?

It's equally difficult for both in their own ways. :(

Loners are smarter. They figure it out by themselves. Others call their friends: how do I fix this. Or better yet they get them to come over and fix it. In college I quickly realized that I didn't need the classroom. I could teach myself....

I think it would be more difficult for either gender if one did not have children.

My kids are still young, but both have already offered to take me in when I'm old.. well even older than I am now. They've said they will plan to get a house with quarters for me.

Re: Growing old.... single and alone...
I would say it is harder for men.
Women are naturally more social and usually have more friends than men. Women are usually the ones to keep up connections with family as well.
Lots of men connect socially through their female partners with friends and family.
If you are a man, single and alone, you will need to make an extra effort to create a social network. Volunteering is a good place to start. Take some classes as well. Spending too much time alone is not healthy. We are social creatures. Even if you are more of a loner, you still need human contact.

I am 44 and single but occasionally dating. I occupy my time with creative and spiritual pursuits. I make an effort to connect with friends and family. I help out in the community. I am rarely lonely, and I love all my free time.

It is difficult for anyone who cannot reach out and develop relationships, whether in marriage or just well cemented friendships.

It is most difficult for those who cannot drive or travel short distances to have a public circls of good acquaintances and who have no one dropping by to chat with or visit.

It is a very large problem.

That is why you have to make a special effort and push yourself. You have to. It is for your health. Keep trying different groups until you find one that you like and feel comfortable in.
Do not go to bars or other self-destructive places.

Re: Growing old.... single and alone...
Yes, I agree. People need to keep reaching out until they find some level of accomodation. It is there if one does not give up.

Volunteer in whatever measure you can, anywhere that is needed.

Re: Growing old.... single and alone...
My aunt died old and alone. She was a mean lady so she pretty much alienated her entire family. When we had to clean out her place after her death, it was trashed with cat litter boxes and cat and dog shit all over. Her only companions were her pets. Very sad.

none of us is ever alone. We are connected to everything in the universe. Some call it God we are connected to. I felt it my entire life since i was a small child. I feel sorry for people that never did. So so sad.

People will let you down. The cosmic connection wont.

Re: Growing old.... single and alone...
Everyone tells me how smart I was to not get tangled up in a marriage.

I know so many men whose lives are destroyed because of psychotic ex-wives and the resulting divorce. Even a guy in know in his 60's is ready to toss his bi-polar live-in girlfriend out because he can't take her anymore.

Another man in his 70's should be retired as he doesn't need to work anymore, but he goes to work every day to just hang out and get out of the house and away from his wife.
