Dating lonely people in america
Think about the type of person that you’d like to meet and you just might increase your chances of meeting them!One of the easiest ways to find friendship after 60 is to reconnect with your old friends form high school, university or work. 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.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.On the other hand, with everyone focused on clicking, it feels like “connecting” has taken on a new, softer meaning.Like many women, I often feel like I have 100’s of “friends” and no-one to share my deepest dreams and fears with on a daily basis. Despite all of the challenges, it is still clear that making friends and maintaining worthwhile relationships is essential after 60.In our search for companionship, technology is a blessing and a curse.
So, give some thought to what you’re looking for in a friend. Friendship takes time, effort and advance planning.
Or, you might find that an old friendship that lapsed due to distance can be picked up where it left off.
Don’t automatically give up on old friends just because they moved away.
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.
