How to meet new people?

I am recently separated and want to make new friends. Before i met my husband I always had friends at my house on the weekends just to watch movies or play board or video games. My husband was a grouch and really didn't like to have people over so I ended up without many of my friends left after a 10 year relationship,they have all moved on to different parts of there lives.

I have always gotten along better with men and I am just looking for friendship,but I'm lost as to go about it. I have very little money to go out and do things, I moved out and then my hours got cut in half at work. I'm really lonely when the kids are not here and I don't even have ppl to chat with online. Every time I try that someone tries to turn it into cyber sex and ugh that's not what I'm looking for.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

  • When I moved to a new town, I joined a church and now I know practically the whole town. There is also always some kind of activity put on by the church that need volunteers. That is a good way to meet people. Get involved in your community.

  • Start volunteering. The only cost is gas to get there and you'll meet lots of great people.

  • i agree- volunteer, interact with EVERYONE there! remember names... invite them out for coffee/dinner. be friendly with both females and males... and if a guy is looking for sex- tell them straight up that you just want a friendship
