Dating clubs for lonely people
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.
Do you look for people who enjoy the same activities as you?
Do you like spending time with people who share similar beliefs to you?
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.
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.
Loneliness is your mind’s way of telling you to get out there and engage with the world.
No matter what your preferences, it pays to be conscious in your choice of friends. First, and most obviously, when you know what kinds of friends you are looking for, you can choose to engage in activities that will give you an opportunity to meet new people of your choosing.
For example, are there political, religious, sports, social or other groups that you could reengage with?
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.
