I'm not 60 or 60+ yet but I'll jot down what I have read from other blogs. I suppose people either become happier as they grow older, or they become unhappier. Some have dreams realized, others don't and are still struggling. Some are sick with diseases, others are perfectly healthy, minus the usual wear and tear. Life slows down for many. They are able to cope but slowly. They do make new friends and have a circle of close friends but of one kind only. They don't try to get into any relationships because they know life is ending, or almost nearing an end. If they do get into a relationship, they will feel guilty as they know life will certainly end after all. Some just go on living till life ends. I think most people read and still keep reading, whatever attracts the eyes and whatever the heart fancies. Do they marry at 60+? I don't know. Most are grandfathers and grandmothers. Marriage of grandparents are unheard of. Why? What are the real life & health issues at 60+? I suppose a lot of the body functions start to go downhill. Most will have grey or white hair, wear some glasses, tire quite easily, not want to speak or say much, prefer to keep things to themselves, reflect on the past a lot, wished they could turn back time and re-live a better life, do something better, etc. But does life really end at 60+? No. Life goes on at 60+. Life as usual, and business as usual. Why are people worried or more worried when they are 60+? If you are 60 or 60+, you can answer or tell me, what life feels like at 60 or 60+.
