    How do grown ups make friends?

    All through a person's youth, they are thoroughly exposed to other people. School, College, University etc. But what about when you're not as exposed and you've moved somewhere new?

    Your friendships don't have to end simply because you relocated! This is especially true in this day of cell phones, email, social media, Google Hangouts, and Skype.
    Lots of adults make new friends at the companies they work for. Some join groups in their area that share their same interest, others gradually make friends with those at the gym, neighbors, or over time as they keep bumping into the same people at grocery stores, local restaurants, church, or wherever people congregate.
    One great resource is which lists several hobby groups and various other enthusiasts interested in similar activities who get together monthly or bi-weekly. Taking a workshop or continuing education "How to" class, sports bars, nightclubs, and hotel lounges on weekends can be a social hot spot. Being open to visiting a nearby city that may have more people and more activities going on is another option.
    Generally speaking it takes time to become accumulated to a new area and discovering where people in your age group or share your interest congregate. Local and community newspapers often feature a list of upcoming activities and events.
    Lastly you can always approach people of your age group and ask them where do people go to have fun or meet others. Most likely someone will give you some viable suggestions.

    The best place to make friends in a place you are new to is through work. Co workers can become quick friends by inviting them out for a drink, dinner, and other activities.
    You can also make friends through joining different sports teams or clubs around wherever you live!
    Also, make an effort to talk to new people.

    Making friends  has never been the most  easiest  for most kids and and adults. When in groups find your way to someone who is outspoken and has a great personality. Talk freely and positively. Little conversations about the day or the weather can stir up more conversations.
