As a woman I have been approached (accosted) in similar situations. As others have said, now you guys know what we women put up with all of our lives. Lol

Within days of a widower comes multiple casseroles at the front door. along with wanting to come in to keep you company, cook and clean. It’s fun to watch, have been out with many recent singles, and those who have lost a loved one, that have multiple stories to tell. At one time the ratio between male and female was a great percentage, that is moving toward a more even volume

This is a delightful movie about the situation for senior men and women, widowed or divorced. The scene when the newly widowed gentleman attends his first bereavement club meeting is hysterical; the casserole brigade and the neighbor lady on her tricycle inviting him to get together every time she sights him are so typical of what happens as well. Boynton Beach Club - Wikipedia

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 think they were having some fun at your expense and btw, they never claimed to live in The Villages.. sorry if you were the butt of their jokes. You were shopping near the fringes.

I think it would be more offensive having to be near someone getting a bite to eat that is perspiring profusely.

He may be Mr. Nine p.m. by now; isn't it almost 15 years since "Leisureville" was written?
