  • Retire.net (www.retire.net). For seniors looking for penpals; also includes seniors personals.

  • Senior.com Chat (chat.senior.com). The chat room of the Senior.com Web site.

  • Seniors-Site.com (www.seniors-site.com). A unique online community just for seniors, with “ask an expert” advice and twenty-five different message boards.

  • SeniorSite.com (www.seniorsite.com). A Web community for users 55 or over; includes a variety of forums and chat rooms.

  • Write a Senior Citizen (www.writeseniors.com). As shown in Figure 33.3, a site dedicated to helping seniors find penpals all over the world; also includes live chat, message boards, recipes, memorials, and personal Web pages.
