Dating an old friend

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.

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?

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.

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.

So, give some thought to what you’re looking for in a friend. Friendship takes time, effort and advance planning.

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.

Keep in mind that the first few connections will always be the hardest.
