Hi Penny. I’m the same age as you so I can confirm we are not too old! I feel like I gave up my life to raise my daughter. Now she’s gone to university I planned to rebuild a friendship group. Covid has delayed that.
I’ve been on various dating sites (paid and free). It’s a lottery. True friendships come from shared interests and experiences. It’s tricky to find that commonality amongst the myriad of personality types with their many relationship aims. My plan (reason for joining) is to find groups and commonality.
