Default Accosted at the Local Publix

I just recently moved into The Villages and I am still slowly moving into my new house in the Village of Marsh Bend.
I have been an avid marathon runner all my life and this last Friday while attempting to complete my daily six mile run, ( still can’t get accustomed to the Florida heat ) I momentarily stepped into the Publix located near Brownwood for a quick bite to eat and to cool down.

Upon entering into the Publix, still perspiring profusely and still wearing my running gear (clothes), I was immediately accosted by two older Villages ladies who were also shopping at the Publix.

One lady approached me and offered to “bend-over” in front of me and help me select an item from the lower shelf. Yet another older female shopper noted that I had a stain on my running shorts and she offered to meet her back at her house in order that she may wash my running shorts.

My question; What’s up with some of the older single / married female residents of The Villages? Is it possible that there are so many female residents here that are just so lonely?

I wouldn't say accosted, but more like befriended.

Accosted? I don't really see the point of your post.

Cougars! The offer to bend over says it all.

If you play your cards'll never have to cook again.

As long as you don't mind...casserole's for breakfast that is.

Hehehehe... now you know what it’s like to be a female with unwanted male attention.

The women are desperate, probably depressed. It is sad.

Hubby and I were at the same Publix in February this year on our Lifestyle visit before we bought. Hubby gets a cart and starts towards the entrance of Publix. There are few people, lots of room. A woman, reasonable looking, follows my husband and pushes her empty cart into hubby’s, she then winks at him instead of apologizing. I noticed as I was beside him. He didn’t even look at her just kept pushing the cart. I think he was protecting her from my response. I looked at the woman but said to myself, “Ok, Velvet, you are not going to...”

The desperation of some people amazes and saddens me. I don’t know what the antidote is to loneliness.

Sounds like a tale with a gender switch.
