Making new friends, I hope!

Hi am a total amateur at this but have been feeling increasingly alone with our present situation so thought I should do something about it.

I separated from my husband and divorced over 10 years ago. I live in London and have 2 beautiful daughters and a gorgeous 7 month old grandson. I do have friends and a lovely male friend who I walk with every day but I'm feeling less happy as the days wear on.

I know I shouldn't complain but I live alone now and am going slowly mad talking to myself.

I'm in my 60's and would love to have a few new friends to video chat with as I feel my confidence draining away.

Be lovely to have ANY response!!

Hi Julianna read your post with interest. I too am finding the recent events has knocked my confidence as I am doing less and meeting up with fewer friends. I would love to be able to chat with you. I am also a grandmother of 2 beautiful grand children, I live in Gibraltar and visit them as often as I can in London.

Travelling is something I look forward to immensely, lockdown has stopped me making trips, that's saddened me,

Best regards
