Single Seniors in Victoria
Recently I was approached by a senior lady offering to organize an event in Victoria for the purpose of bringing together single seniors in a casual, friendly way. Based on our brief chat, I have decided to test the waters by asking our readers if they would be interested in an event sponsored, in part, by Senior Living. I have no idea what the response will be, but judging from comments expressed to me over the years by seniors who say they just don't know where and how to meet other singles, it could be big! Our aim would not be to provide a "dating service". Instead, I imagine it to be a casual affair where singles, male and female, can get together, enjoy the camraderie and explore the possibilities. There's certainly nothing stopping attendees from starting intimate relationships with each other, but I expect this will be an opportunity for most singles to find new friends and share common interests. Looking for a golfing partner or a travel companion? Want to go to a movie or theatre production? Do you have a passion for wine tasting, or dog shows? Since the lady offering to organize this event lives in Victoria, we are going to start with Greater Victoria residents... so if you live in this area and would like to attend an event like this, let us know your interest by emailing us at email@example.com When you do, please tell us if you are male or female, why you are interested, and provide us with your phone number and email address whre we can reach you if we decide to proceed with an event. All responses will be held in strict confidence. And, by the way, if you live in another major city and would like to see a similar event held in your area, email us and let us know where you live -- who knows, if the Victoria efforts are successful, we may be able to find organizers for events in other areas.
