How Do Singles Spend Time
How are some ways that singles spend time? I have lost my spouse, suffering from empty nest, and work nights and week ends, I don't go to bars and can't afford cruises or retreats. Yes I have pets. but would like conversations.

I am also widowed with not many friends,the ones I do have are all married.I work part time,run my Mom to store when needed,spend time with my grandkids and attend church and read my bible.Do spend most of my evenings on the computer answering e-mail where I have met some really nice people.I do a lot of things alone but believe that I am right where God wants me to be and I know when the time is right,God will send someone to fill the lonely times.

There are many organizations listed in Church bullitins, and in newspapers, and from word of mouth about places to go in the community.
I've joined a community recreation center, and will begin swim lessons again soon. I also volunteer, spend time with friends, have hobbies, go to plays. It may seem difficult to find new friends at first, but if you continue to go to the same places a while you'll get to know some new people.

If you are a real christian you can spend your time with Gospel spreading and make good Christian friendships or you can legaly marry and live as a real christian.

I too am widowed and live in a state where I have no family but have made a lot of friends so they manage to keep me busy...I suggest volunteering at various places and then be active in church as much as possible...I have several craft projects that keep me very busy and there are always children who would love to have a mentor to look up to and do things with....

I am a widow too but fortunately i got 6 daughters and i am regular employee here in my city YET i still find time to be involved in church activities/work..Be a part in your church or christian groups for it is where you find trus satisfaction and no dull moments when you are in tuned with our Lord and Saviour. God bless!!!

I have done all types of volunteer work. I have done work in a women's rehab, and with abused women.
May I suggest you start a women's Bible study in the morning at your church. You don't have to lead it, but ask your pastor about it, and see if you can't get something going.

My husband left me. I don't get a chance to do much with friends as I'm at work when they are home with their familys. my church doesn't offer bible studys in the morning. what volenter work do you do? I don't want to be to wore out before I go to work.I use to do a lot for church before divorce, Put now work, when activitys are. I soon will be looking for 2nd job. but I don't realy make friendships at work as they run home to their familys and I don't blame them.

I went to graduate school and am starting a new career. Doing volunteer work also helps keep my off the streets and out of trouble.

When I was single (up till about 2 years ago)I had some friends from work, some from church. I'm an outgoing person and I would get into chats with people at book stores, etc. I would puposely go to the Christian section of the store. I met one of my best friends there, we've been friends now for 10 years.Some strangers are just friends you haven't met yet.

Being single is the best opportunity to serve the Lord; personally and socially. A single person can utilize free time visiting elders in the community or hospitals. Or use the time to deepen your knowlege of the Lord by joining a Bible study or taking a Christian Ed. class. Let the Lord guide your steps. God Bless
