living single

I have lived half my life alone. However, it appears I am not 'alone.' According to our AARP Community research, 37% of Boomers are single, either "never married" (12%), divorced/separated (21%) or widowed (4%). And while being single does not necessarily mean you live alone, 57% of boomer singles live alone and another 25% live only with their children.
Despite the stereotype of the lonely "old maid," senior singletons (as they're popularly called) are actually living it up!
