Receiving drastically fewer phone calls and texts

I’m in my mid 50s and have recently noticed I’m not receiving calls, texts, and social invitations anymore. I’m actually happy about it; it’s such a peaceful life now. I guess it’s a combination of aging friends, Covid restrictions, and loss of interest. As someone who enjoys spending time alone, it’s perfectly fine with me. I am still working in an office, mainly with people in their 20s and 30s, and being around them makes me realize how much I don’t really care for most other people. I’m so happy to go home alone.

My parents are in their 70s and still have a huge social life with other older couples, with game nights, church events, and casino trips. I’m happy for them, I’m just not interested to have that same experience.

You are not happy about it if you have to whinge on DL. Such a cryauntie boo hoo hoo!

You base your view of humanity on your office co-workers? That's pitiful. A man in his mid-50s should have something more going on in his life than fuss over what his pod mates are doing, let alone consider that some kind of marker of...anything.

And if you think you're happy leaving your office to go home alone, think how hysterically happy it must make your colleagues to see the back of you heading home to heat up some Progresso soup or whatever you do there.

Solitude is inevitable. It is best to lean into and get comfortable with it. True faith - in oneself, in nature, in a higher power - begins and thrives in solitude, as do love and a true appreciation for other human beings.

I would just point this out. How many texts are you sending or calls are you making?

I noticed the same thing as I got older, but up to that point in my life I had been deluged with people reaching out. So I started reaching out just to the people I considered real friends and the communication picked back up.

Sometimes, you need to be the one that instigates.
