Thread: meeting people

  1. #1

    Default meeting people

    Sometimes people think they must just be friends with people their
    own age and their specific interests. Not so!! We all need friends
    of all ages. The newly single lady of course, needs friends her own
    age but don't pass up friendships with other ages either. Hopefully
    she will find some "grandparent" age people who would love to adopt
    her and her family, especially if she is not close to her own.
    The advice about getting active in a church is good. Don't just go
    and sit in the pew, rush out, and then complain about people not
    being friendly. They are just like everyone else, you must be
    approachable. My almost 40 daughter has a teen-age girl who just
    loves to go shopping with her and spend time with her boys. She is
    like one of their family.
    It takes time to meet people and make really good friends but I
    think you have gotten some good advice here. I know our neighborhood
    would love to welcome you.
    A couple of years ago a newly out of college gal came to our church
    and wanted to go to a Bible Study. She wandered into one of 50's
    and 60's age ladies. She liked us and stayed. We all went to her
    wedding and now she has about 10 "grandma's" all anxious to get
    their hands on her new baby. She says if it hadn't been for our
    group she would not have stayed at the church. She of course, has
    made lots of friends her age but we old gals still like to think we
    are special to her! Grandma D.

    Dori's advice about meeting people is right on. We moved to a new
    area almost two years ago. It was so difficult leaving all our
    family and friends in a new state.

    In our new church, we really didn't know anyone until we started
    attendining an adult fellowship class. It has adults of all ages and
    includes singles and couples. In less than two years we have made
    what I consider "lifelong" friends. Getting involved is the only way
    to meet people.

    Check your local paper or the announcement board at the library to
    fine local groups who have similar interests. Take a free class.
