As people grow older and move, friendships take a backseat and drift away. What was once a strong relationship is completely gone as distance and time grow further apart. As adults, it is hard to make friends. Growing up in school, sports, band, activities, and even college it was easy to meet people, but as adults, it is a lot tougher. Moving makes it even harder. Outside of coworkers, where do you go to meet people in a new town?

Be Active At Community Events

One of the best things a person can do is to get out and attend as many community events as possible. You can't meet new people from inside your house unless you want them to be online. Browse local websites, go to the KEZJ app, and check to see things going around town, and try to attend as many as you can. Events in parks, volunteer events, or church events are all good places, as you can connect with other parents or people with similar interests.

Join A Mom Group or Social Group on Facebook

One way to meet people and get familiar with them is by joining a group on Facebook. While you may not be meeting in person, it helps others in the community get to know you a little and you to know them as well. There are so many different kinds, such as parent groups, mom groups, dad groups, single groups, and you can even go more specific with a hobby like video games, sports, or whatever you are into.

Don't Become A Hermit

The easiest thing to do in the winter months is to stay home and isolate yourself from people. Make sure to stay active in church, go out with coworkers and continue to communicate with people. Often people complain about how hard it is to make friends as an adult, but they isolate and don't change their routine. You can't meet people if you don't go places.

Make sure to get out of your comfort zone and try new things if you are looking to broaden your social circles. It won't be easy, and you may meet people you don't connect with right away, but continue to give it a try. Eventually, you will meet the right person or group that meets your preference. Be patient, be social and be yourself. Happy Friend shopping.
