Hey Beth, I know you love the Villages. The retirement life is great down there.....but........come clean now!!!   Twisted Evil
I was just watching "Inside Edition' on TV.
They had a segment on the Villages...Embarassed Rolling Eyes
surprising bit of facts:

It has been dubbed the "Wildest, Sexiest Retirement Community in the United States"!!!
A reporter spent 6 months living there and wrote a book titled,
"Leisureville".
to quote this segment on Inside Edition:
"The viagra is free flowing. Women outnumber men 10/1; Sumpter County Club is the swingingist club on the property; Booze is dirt cheap; A  married woman in her late 60's-early 70's was arrested for having sex in the community square with her 49 year old lover"......


Wow!!!!




I still love you.....xxoo
Cyn

I wanted to let you know what is going around the country about the Villages....lol

In any retirement community, the women will out-number the men 10 to 1. And those men aren't looking for blue-haired old ladies, they go after the 20 year-olds. It is rare for a younger man to be with an older woman. She must not have looked her age. I see more older men with arm candy. They are not interested in an actual relationship, just sex. And the young babe is looking at his wallet.
Out here there is a very wealthy family named Segerstrom. The performing arts center is named after them. The head of the family was married for 40-some years to the same woman. When she passed, he started seeing a 20-something, very ambitious, Asian gal, 3 months after his wife died. They were married within a year and now she is a high society grand dame dripping with jewels. There is no fool like an old fool. He is at least 80 now and I hope he is getting his money's worth.
Another man, 57 years old and divorced, and very wealthy, latched on to a 20-something babe. She moved in with him and she was a beneficiary on his life insurance and possibly in his will. What he didn't know is that she had an ex-pro football player as a boyfriend. They murdered him 20 years ago and finally the ex-boyfriend was sent to prison. I am not sure what she got.
Men are so stupid when it comes to sex.

Yes, there are many, MANY different facets of The Villages.

100% of what you have seen on TV is probably true.

But I've not witnessed it first hand. I've seen 500 people in the middle of the Town Square doing the same exercise routine at 9:00 a.m.

I've seen dozens of people who bring the 'Service Dog In Training' out and about with the harness and 'Service Dog' coat so the dogs can be trained to be use to crowds of people.

I've experienced the cheeeeep booze ~ but that's not all that terrible if you don't overdo it (is it?).

What I've not seen is most of the stuff they put on TV because it's exciting or titillating for the public. But, hey, I'm one of those people who get up at 5:00 a.m. and is home and ready to get into bed by 9:30 p.m. I'm sure there are those who drink too much, or are out looking to hook up for a one-night-stand ~ but that must all happen AFTER I get home at 9 p.m. ~ I don't see 'em when I arrive at the square for the Farmers' Market or even for the 5:00 - 9:00 music and line dancing.

The single ladies I've spoken to (and, yes, they probably out number the men 10 to 1) are adamant about loving the friends they have here, the things they can do (clubs, exercise, service projects, church, etc.) and how safe they feel in their community because they check on one another and make sure no one is in danger or hurt in a home accident and left to languish on the floor unable to get up as in the "I've Fallen And I Can't Get Up" commercials. And 100% of the women I've talked to has said the same thing ....... "NO WAY IN HE_ _ AM I GOING TO LOOK FOR ANOTHER MAN TO TAKE CARE OF". They've done that, been there and are NOT returning to a life of caretaking when there is so much more to be offered by being single.

That is so funny Beth!. I thought I was the only one who felt that way. I have always told my friends that if anything happened to my DH that there was no way I would ever marry again. Not that anyone would want me. I am the last woman any man would want. But I have said that it is just too hard to try and get used to another husband. After almost 50 years together (30 years married) I just don't think I could do it again. It is just too hard and I am too old. But if I did run across someone who could change my mind, he would have to be loaded. I would definitely want a man who was well off financially. Not for the reasons that a typical gold digger has but for other reasons. Like, if my washer broke, I can afford to have it fixed. If my car dies, I can get it fixed. If I need repairs around the house, I can hire someone to do it. I think I would pass out the first time I could hire professional movers who would pack and move me and I didn't have to do it myself. Trips, jewels, clothes are nice but not necessary. A cleaning lady. Now that is luxury!

Hey Beth, I hope you are not upset at me for posting this.
I was just shocked when I saw this on TV. I did not know if you were aware of info the press was posting about you area.

I am like you--I am in bed early; fall asleep watching TV; have an early supper; do not go out partying;
I would love the farmer's market, exercise on the square; service dog training; Church; having people check on each other (that is a great group of people); etc...
I am just wanting peace and quiet right now....of course a glass of wine with it!
