    • Linda Joy
      I'm sorry you're in that situation, but glad you're making the most of it! You are taking advantage of the social services in your area right?
    • pearllederman

    • ARTICFOX700
      I'm in the same boat it's a shame we can't meet
    • Linda Joy
      Why can't you meet? Pearl, you're in the northwest, right? Fox, you're northeast, right? Meet in the middle!
    • ARTICFOX700
      We don't have enough to even get that far
    • Linda Joy
      So email or text or call. At least you can get to know one another and keep each other company. And then, if you want Greyhound has reasonable rates especially if you purchase in advance and travel during the week. But Pearl may be shy.
  • I believe it was around when I was 15, got a job through my school back then it was a part time thing with the board of education. At the same time I was working on the boats on weekends, then I had college full time with the boats all summer and weekends during the winter. No time for life no time for sex no time for people but I had independence and was happy.
    • Linda Joy
      What did you take in college?
  • I have pretty much been independent since I was 14 or 15. Back in the 1950s.
    • Linda Joy
      I left home at 15, but was not providing for my own food clothing and shelter so in essence I was not independent.
  • No one is truly independent. We all depend on something or someone. We depend on our jobs to supply us with the things we need today to live on. We depend on people to repair our automobiles and service stations to supply us with fuel. We depend on farmers and grocery store to have the food we need. and the list goes on and on so today none of us are truly independent.
  • I've been "independent" most of my life as my parents are career professionals and often busy and out. I could have been just been another slacker rich kid like my friends at that time. But chose the right life of being engaged with the community and people instead. It's why I have little sympathy for most types of people who think their circumstances are solely to blame for their issues.
    • Linda Joy
      So you judge what you've never even experienced? That explains a lot.
  • Have a job, feed yourself, live alone.
  • After divorce and living alone.
  • Of course not. I'm highly dependent upon things like air, water, food, etc. No one can survive in a perfect vacuum.
