It is really harder to make friends as we age. Why is that?
Where does one meet new friends when we're over 40?
Right now, I'd say I have about two close friends, and some scattered people-I-kinda-know around town. But I have no idea how to parlay these new acquaintances into friends.
I’ve been living in our town for over 5 years. I feel like an outsider still. I have not been able to make a connection to anyone in my area. My best friends live over an hour away and I miss having them around. We talk on the phone and get together occasionally but I would like to have that connection with people close by.
How do I become friends with people I only know enough to say "Hi" and talk about the kids?
