How do you make friends in your 50s UK?
Be receptive. Smile and talk to people you see regularly – the newsagent, the postman, the supermarket cashier (though not when theres a queue, since that will make you enemies). Join a sporting or cultural club. Try Crossfit, a sports programme with a sociable and supportive aspect to it. Walk the dog. Travel the world.
Why is it so hard to make friends in your 50s?
One of the biggest reasons why people have a hard time making friends after 50 is because of the stigma attached to putting yourself out there after a certain age.
