How to make friends ?

by claire74 » 26 Apr 2016

Here I explain, I'm 58, and apart from my family, I have no friends (e) s. Why I do not know anything, yet I do everything (well I think) to my knowledge do I belong to a choir, I was part of a country dance club but I had a problem and I can not dance and I miss it tremendously. I think I am a kind, open and discreet.
So if you can tell me how to create relationships to make me feel less alone and can no longer go out alone.
Thank you

Hiya, I feel a bit the same myself. I am 55 and children gone now. Got friends in work, friends from ages ago and not so long ago but they all married

It's hard to break into groups as they have paired up or gone into cliques etc. I think people find it hard to reach out these days.
I have tried groups and organisations and people were nice enough but never interested in me I felt.
I perhaps need to be more outgoing.

Kind regards, thanks for reading.

I was thinking that joining a group may help, now I am mot so sure. Will I come home feeling more lonely.

Joining a group for people who share one or more of your interests is maybe the best way as long as you don't expect friendships to happen quickly. It may take a while.

I agree with Nicko58 - people are in cliques and not interested in inviting a new person in. I have given up trying to make friends
