Single Veteran

I don't own a cell phone so I can't vouch for apps like Tinder etc. I have tried web sites like Plenty Of Fish, OK Cupid, etc. and... nada. Back when video dating was the trendy thing I tried that too and spent considerable money for zero return. In my younger years I was the outcast in school, so was never considered as a dating prospect. If meeting people through work connections is how people meet potential dates, then I don't have very much hope now because I don't speak Spanish, Chinese,Punjabi, Ukrainian either. Just saying that meeting people when you were young and single is no easier than 40 years later either.

just read your post, and I think the same way. Not into dating sites. And I too am sort of old school. I am retired, and my thinking is who would want to visit, chat with a retired person?

If you call yourself a retired person then nobody lol. I'm sure there's more to your personality than being retired.

Meetups!

You should go to some of the meetups! I went to the original meetup when it started a few years back and I ended up meeting my now best friend there! I am very passionate about art, culture and literature and she was the same way! I was really lucky to have met her  
 
I will definitely be going to some of the activities in the near future! And I'm hoping to plan some of my own outings for the art lovers out there!!!

Meetups!

Hi Alvin,  
 
If you are a member of Facebook there is a group called Brandon Area Singles! It's for anyone looking to meet new people and have a great time! They've organized board game nights and bowling nights recently and I'm sure there will be some amazing events to come in the future!  
 
I understand that not everyone has Facebook so hopefully people can let others' know about possible upcoming events!  
 
All the best!!!

Not seeing a listing for any date, and definitely not Nov 9. I found a Prairie Social Club dance Oct 27 but no Forever Young dances anywhere. Am I missing something??

impressed you dont use a cell phone Good for you! I still have a prepaid flip phone (yes a flip phone lol Dont have to worry about breaking the screen lol) but havent topped it up in awhile as have a home phone... I think dating was easier back in the 80's as there were concerts,arcades,parties,etc and people seemed to hang out more. I think dating sites can be iffy. Although my son n daughternlaw met on a gaming site became friends then met in person and have been together 15yrs since lol I think meeting people when you are out shopping or at timmies or something would open options? I wouldnt want to date someone from work that could cause conflict? lol A friend worked as a secretary for her husband in a realestate firm and he was cheating on her with a coworker! You will meet someone if its meant to be.

The Nov 9 Forever Young Club dance won't be listed in the events section on eBrandon until closer to the date. If you attend on the 9th you will also get dates of different club dances for the month.

single

Just putting my two cents worth in here. I went to a couple of single meets a couple of years ago - started here on E-Brandon - there were people of all ages there. I was the oldest. I noticed the younger people huddled together and me being the oldest was left on the sidelines trying to have a conversation with anyone - but it became very evident that being older (retired or around that age) wouldn't work in this group setting. So when someone says there retired believe me, unless there are people of similar ages - you will be left out. That's just my experience.

Retired? LMAO!!

Retirement is something that I will never be able to enjoy (not unless taking up residence in a cardboard box in a back lane is a viable living option) The pension plan where I work (UFCW 832) will pay out approx $1,800 annually/~$150 per month. I can never foresee myself having retiree status. Any singles looking for a Sugar Daddy to support them, sorry but it ain't gonna be me.
