There are millions of wonderful people in the world who want more friends, people just like you.

But, in order to find them, you need to face your fears, explore your passions, use your network and, most importantly, take a chance on reaching out to others. That might seem strange to hear, coming from someone who started a community of 50,000 women over 60.

So, don’t be afraid to reach out to people that you already know – but, also don’t be afraid to use reunions and other events to meet other people with a similar background 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.

In our search for companionship, technology is a blessing and a curse.

On the one hand, services like Skype and Facebook allow us to stay connected with friends and family throughout the world.

Or, you might find that an old friendship that lapsed due to distance can be picked up where it left off.

Don’t automatically give up on old friends just because they moved away.

Here are a few ideas for making new friends in your sixties. But, the truth is that we all feel lonely from time to time.

I know women in marriages and with big families that feel like they have no-one to talk to. What we do about our feelings of loneliness is a choice! As George Monbiot wrote in this article in the Guardian, “This is the Age of Loneliness.” You are a good person and you deserve true friendship, love and attention.

The longer you stay in your own cocoon, the greater the chances that you will slip into an even darker mental state, like depression. Once you prepare yourself mentally for the road ahead, it’s time to define what “friendship” means to you.

After all, as the Cheshire Cat in Alice in Wonderland said, “If you don’t know where you’re going, any road will get you there.” What do you value most in your friends?

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.
