Children are a great way to meet people. They have sports they play, clubs, friends etc...The schools always have functions and need volunteers to help with fundraisers. There are scrap-booking and other groups like that that meet in a lot of communities. Most of my friends are former co-workers.

Trust is difficult at first but if you don't get out there and try, you will miss out on so much. I am 50 too, with kids at home starting over, so I have an idea of what you are facing.

get on one of those web boards for moms with kids and then see if you can find people in your area to meet up with playdate for the kids. then while kids play you can talk with the parents. Or book club or maybe a Lions club or Kiwanis? not really sure but I bet you can do it!

Best Answer

you already have friends, i'm sure ..... try reconnecting to those you might like to talk to again .....sorry bout your friend ,,, but you have more than you might relize,, that i'm sure of.<br />
how young is your child ?? you didn't say and that could make some differences on my input ,,,,, join activities with/for your child ,, you can meet alot of other parents that way ,, if you work outside the home,, you probably have some co-employees that find you interesting enough to 'forward' a friendship ,,,,,good luck ,, i'm sure you can find many ways of not being lonely if you try.
