This isn't the right place to post but not sure where is?

How do you make friends mid thirties??

Join a club. Yoga. Start a class. Volunteer.

Always ask yourself "I wonder if o like this person," and not, "I wonder if they will like me."

Get out there and do stuff. Join groups/clubs/teams etc. Follow your interests. And don't try too hard. By which I mean accept that initially you are going to maybe only see peop me at the relevant events and it would take time for that to develop further into going out for a coffee or meal or something.

Yy to the above. Try not to "look for friends" as such, but instead try to socialise more doing things you enjoy. That way, you'll be relaxed and enjoying yourself, new friends or not and you'll be more likely to naturally become friendly with people you have something in common with

Volunteering is really rewarding and may expand your social circle in surprising ways: www.buzzfeed.com/laurasilver/how-can-you-help?utm_term=.ppV9wB53w#.rumxL6NRL

The friendships I have made in my 30s aren't as deep, partly due to lack of shared history and partly due to not having the time to invest in them. No less supportive or worthwhile though.
