I wanted to ask what do people do after an long marriage? Lately i have been trying to find out who i am ,searching who i am since being married so many yrs (35 yrs) that all i have known was taking care of a husband, house and earlier my kids. During this time i have lost who i was and what i am. All i have known was being a mother and wife i did for them but now i am alone and feel lost. I am searching now but not sure at my age of 59 where i fit in to society anymore. I am old but not old enough to be senior. I can not get senior housing because i am not old enough and have to pay rediculous prices for rent. Just to say i do not work also, no family or kids nearby. The things i used to like i feel silly at my age now to do or they just do not interest me anymore. Even dating feels funny to me but i have been out there to find jerks only. Rather be alone than be with the ones i have met. I am not depressed like others might think i just want to see what others are doing so it can help me get hints on what i might do for myself maybe. I have tried meetup.com groups but usually i am the oldest there. There is a senior center but all are older than me there. I tried the bar scene after divorce and during but only thing was good was the music nothing more than that. Not much to do around here anyway. I go shopping or window shop but this is boring to me. At home i am on internet and watch TV and clean. Never were into sports either. What a life LOL. So if you can tell me what you do to keep you interested after your divorce? how do you overcome boredom?
