Default Single and moving to the villages this week!

Hi......
My name is Melissa and I am a single 60 year young woman moving to the villages on Wednesday! I’m scared but excited for my new life! I still will be working as a consultant for a major cruise line so unfortunately not fully retired. I would welcome any help from some fellow singles to show me around and get me acclimated to this “Single World” here! It’s very scary coming here alone!
Appreciate any support!
Melissa

Missyz,
IMHO, I would suggest you remove your post, at a minimum remove your email. There is a singles club, I think Chachacha is generally in charge, do a search on this site or send her a private message. This site is OPEN to the public and there are lurkers that may not have your best interests at heart.
Welcome to the Villages, hope you enjoy it here.

Hi Melissa
I too am a single woman -a 64 ur old social worker. I just bought a beautiful home in Sumter Landing area on my own. I won't be in Florida until November, but you're welcome to get in touch with me then. My email is NancysPlace519@gmail.com. I've wintered in The Villages by myself for two yrs. Here's some advice: Get the recreation news from one of the Recreation Centers each week. (its like a little newspaper) Pick out the recreation activities that speak to you!! Make a schedule for yourself around your work hours. Try to do at least i or 2 activities each day. Introduce yourself and start talking with people at these activities. You'll generally see the same people each week and can begin developing friendships. I met several women when I signed up for beginner pickle ball lessons. We exchanged phone numbers and would meet each other to practice. You'll do fine! Best, Nancy

OMG some people are so naive. You will be fine in The Villages, but use a little discretion. If you were moving to NYC would you post your name and e mail. Well, there are many nice people in TV, but there are also, like anywhere, some slim balls. Sorry.

Back when I was considering (as a single) moving to The Villages I found TOTV to be an incredible resource in many ways. Posters were quite helpful and a few sincerely welcomed me upon my arrival. Thank you! You know who you are. Unfortunately a serious life changing medical condition developed in a close family member which kept me from making the move which I wanted to make. Life happens. If I had moved to TV I am certain I would have become an orgulous villager like so many other posters.

As others have mentioned, OP, you may want to delete your email address unless you created one solely to meet some very nice folks in TV.

I'm chiming in as well....PLEASE do not ever post your contact info (ie. e-mail, phone # etc.) on social media as it's just plain NOT safe!!! In your profile folks should be able to click and private message you!!!

I believe ncl.com is the url of Norwegian Cruise lines.

If so that is a work email, not a personal one. Still...
