About Golden Girls Lifestyle


Golden Girls Lifestyle is a website designed to introduce people who don't want to or can't afford to spend their retirement alone. For some of us there may be a nanny suite in the basement of one of our children's homes and if that suits you wonderful, but others may be wishing to stay in their big house that is too expensive and difficult for them alone, or wish to sell their home and rent but renting a place alone eats up a huge amount of money that might have been used to travel, have fun etc. Maybe you're on a waiting list for subsidized senior housing, some of those lists are 5-10 years long and what you get is small and not so nice!! And of course living alone can be scary when you're older, what if you need a new knee or hip, you're probably going to need some help for a week or two. There are many, many reasons to search out other Golden Girls (or Guys) the least of which is Lonliness which studies now say is as dangerous to your health as smoking!! (see news feed for article)

The options here are endless,  for example you can:

- rent out rooms in your house to other like minded people

- find some people to rent a big beautiful house or condo with (or buy one, or have one built)

- find some people that want to live here for the summer and down south for the winter

- find some people that want to move overseas permanently

I realize that finding the right combination of people will not be easy, it will take time, but you must have a place to look for them, SO that is the intention of this website, sign up, post your profile, and start looking for your housemates and start living the Golden Girls Lifestyle!

Someone is always home

It’s nice to know that there is always someone at home, someone who will check on you if you don’t come out for breakfast, someone to give you a hand if you’ve sprained your arm or get the flu, and when you hear a bump in the middle of the night it’s very comforting to know you don’t have to check it out alone.

Make new friends

The kids are gone, you don’t have to go to work everyday, NOW is the time to do all those things you always wanted to: Travel, exercise, learn to paint or dance or speak a new language.  You can do those things alone but it’s way more fun to do them with a couple of friends and you are far more likely to get out there have that fun if there is some saying "come on let’s go"!!

Save money for fun times

Living by yourself is expensive!!  If you can share costs between 2, 3 or 4 other like minded individuals you can have a much nicer place for a fraction of what you would pay alone. What will you do with all your extra money? Travel, new wardrobe, or how about spending the winter in the Caribbean?
