I've seen many elderly people having a good time on trips with their friends. As we grow older, we worry about who our friends are and if we might live alone all by ourselves. It is not too bad if one has a spouse to accompany till the twilight years but there are some who prefer to be single. There are chatrooms such as Senior Dating online to keep these elderly people occupied so they can mingle and get to know one another. It can prove to be fun to meet new people of their age.
