My grandmother buys a magazine for old people that is called “Пенсионер” (in Russian: “Pensioner”). This magazine contains recipes, health and life tips from readers. Sometimes, she gives the journal to my mother or me, when she finds an interesting recipe or something else.
Today I saw “Pensioner” on a table at my home. It was opened on a page with two articles. I don't know what topics were there, because I paid attention to the next page. The next page was dedicated to dating for old people. It is like a dating site but on paper.
I decided to read this page while I drank not sweet strong black tea. There were messages only from old women who search for old men. Most of them had a common feature — they were widows and searched only for widowers.
That's good that they are still active and want to love someone again.
But this all situation feels a bit sad for me. You lived for a long time with a human who you loved all this time, you are used to this human (in a good meaning), you wake up every day in one bad with this human. And, once, one of both dies. Then one of you will be used to live on his own, wake up alone and love loneliness until he dies or meets a new love.
