Wish I had a friend

I realized how hard it is to make friends. I mean this isn’t really new news.
But how do adults make new friends. Usually kids make friends at school and such.
But I haven’t gone to a school or college for years and years now.
I don’t work. So where do I find people to make friends with.
Do does anyone know how to make friends?

I totally understand, I have the same issue.

what do you like to do? I joined the bike club, and I make friends that way.
I volunteer at church events.

once you have kids, I always had alot of friends when my kids were small, all of us parents doing things together with our kids

Joining a group would be a good idea. But I live in a very small town and there aren’t many things to do here. And I don’t know if I’m brave enough to do something like that on my own. Maybe I’ll have to do it one day. I want to but it freaks me out.

I know exactly how you feel. I made a post about this some time ago: Hard time making friends
