DEAR DEIDRE: SINCE my wife died eight years ago, I’ve been so lonely. I am not looking for a date but I’d love to have a friend who’d call round to watch a movie and chat.
I’m a guy of 62. I don’t like talking to men, as I don’t drink and I’m not interested in football or other sports.
I find talking to women much easier. I love cooking, baking and watching films
I’m fed up of just sitting staring at the TV every night on my own. I haven’t got the first idea how to go about meeting someone for friendship. I have two sons who live nearby but they have young families and have enough to do.
DEIDRE SAYS: It need not be too hard to make friends if you put yourself out there. Sociable men of a certain age are in great demand.
Look around for local clubs to join which will have a mixed membership.
Think about voluntary work, as that attracts good-hearted people.
My e-leaflet Widening Your Social Scene will help get you started.
Check out meetup.com for details of what is going on in your area.
