Friendship (I'm a newbie, forgive mistakes!)

My DH died nearly 3 years ago, a sudden heart attack. I have a 21-yr old DS. Although I'm pretty much OK now and have a great relationship with my DS, I'm just lonely. Not looking for a new relationship, just friends (with brains) that I can talk with. I work full time and am always too tired to go out - never been much of a mixer - but would just love to be able to talk about things with people my own age (57, how old does that sound!). My DS is wonderful but has his own friends & interests, doesn't want to listen to mum going on all the time! Anyone out there as ancient as me who just wants a friend??

have you done usual things: evening classes/weekend courses on things you like or new interests; book clubs, walking clubs ramblers, etc etc ? things like ramblers/walking clubs meet on weekends so if you tired on evenings after work that could work.

( am waiting for Dc to grow up so i can do these things!)

Have written to you, OP.

Are you a single mum too, cestlavie?

Thanks for the messages! I only catch up in the week, I always mean to go online at weekends but always forget. Walking clubs, good idea - I think I'll research that!
Going to have to get the hang of this messaging thing (heh, what a technophobe) and will catch up tomorrow (Tues)!!
