    Next time write about the lonliness of widowhood; of getting into bed with no one to kiss after decades of that blessing; of cringing when people give sideway glances when you dine alone at an upscale restaurant because most of your friends have passed and the ones who are still here can’t afford the luxury of joining you. Yes, I’m grateful for longevity, for sufficient means to eat out once in a while, to go to a play once in a while. Here comes the “but”. They are empty experiences as are volunteering and socializing. It seems we are invisible and unnecessary. Yet, we cling to the life we have left. For me, it’s my dog. For the few friends who have family, it’s grandchildren. Bottom line – unless one is in relatively good health and can still travel, exercise, etc. life is meaningless. Oops, is my geriatric depression showing?

      I’m so sorry you feel that way. Many single people find deep meaning and fulfillment in their lives, but research suggests that is more likely to happen for those who have been single all their lives than for those who were previously married.
