Why is it hard to make friends over 30?

Shoutbox

This the "Shoutbox" -- basically a site-wide, group chat. (It's only visible to members.)
jetcity: Had to have my cat put down today. He was very old and he let us know it was time this morning. My wife went to visit her mother today So now It’s just me, the cats and dog and a couple cold beers. Now that’s a party right? :( Oct 12, 2018 21:57:32 GMT -5
solodriver: So sorry jetcity, I've done that many times over the years, never gets any easier. Oct 12, 2018 22:45:20 GMT -5
jetcity: I managed to create an avatar! The beard and mustache are kind of funky though. Oct 12, 2018 23:30:07 GMT -5

caballotierra: Hey all, I setup a new account since my W figured out my login and was using my posts against me. Since we're going through divorce, I thought it would be safer to remove my old name. :( Although I feel attached to it. Oct 15, 2018 16:12:30 GMT -5
misssunnybunny: Oh, wow. Sorry that happened to you! :| Oct 15, 2018 16:36:32 GMT -5
caballotierra: Does anyone know how to delete my old account? Right now, it's still searchable, which is a problem. Oct 16, 2018 12:12:19 GMT -5

jim44444: not only did andie delete her existence here she also deleted her tumblr account. Maybe her hubby found her online postings. Oct 22, 2018 19:52:59 GMT -5
misssunnybunny: Oh, no! Hope she is okay... :( Oct 22, 2018 20:00:25 GMT -5
solodriver: I'm sad andie is gone too. She reached out to me when I first joined the group at a time when I was really sick, and talked to me everyday until I was well again and shared a lot of her stories with me. Oct 22, 2018 20:58:28 GMT -5
solodriver: HAPPY BIRTHDAY dear ggold!!!! :) Oct 22, 2018 20:58:53 GMT -5
