Dating a girl that youve met once
Second, taking the time to think about what friendship means to you will make it more likely that you will see opportunities to start conversations in more natural settings – at the supermarket, in the post office, or in the park.
So, give some thought to what you’re looking for in a friend. Friendship takes time, effort and advance planning.
For all you know, they might be in the same situation as you.
They might be nervous to reach out to you, thinking that you are “too busy” to take their call.
So, don’t be afraid to reach out to people that you already know – but, also don’t be afraid to use reunions and other events to meet other people with a similar background to you.
You might be surprised that you have developed common interests with your old friends in the years after school.
The longer you stay in your own cocoon, the greater the chances that you will slip into an even darker mental state, like depression. Once you prepare yourself mentally for the road ahead, it’s time to define what “friendship” means to you.
But, in order to find them, you need to face your fears, explore your passions, use your network and, most importantly, take a chance on reaching out to others.

Sometimes the people that you find you have the most in common with may not be the people that you knew when you were younger.Despite everything we know about the importance of maintaining social connections as we get older, finding friends after 60 can be a challenge.As we age, the easy social connections that we enjoyed as schoolmates, parents and colleagues change.
In our search for companionship, technology is a blessing and a curse.
