As per a report, many male & female Senior people in their 70s want partners with whom they want to travel around the country and world and live the twilight years of their lives.

I am on the lookout of a likeminded partner who is lonely in her old age and would like to move in with me. My plan is to work for 11 months and then take off on a month’s vacation with her," says Shah who concedes his sons are okay with his decision.
