Starting with Navy service, I’ve always enjoyed wandering the world. Unfortunately my wife passed away last year, and I need to hit the road again. What’s the best way to find a compatible person for the next trip? JLL, Tampa FL

A: If you’re looking for a male pal, check with familiar relatives and friends your age who may agree to join you. It’s more complicated with women companions because of commitment and other adult situations. You can try searching senior singles websites to see if you can match up for a journey together.

Another good way to get started is to sign with a single seniors trip or cruise. During that experience you’ll be able to spend time to observe potential companions for future journeys together. Good luck in your efforts!
