Its often difficult to make new friends because people already have their own group of friends and don't want to change the dynamics of the original group. If you've lost friends or moved to a new place it's particularly difficult. Thank goodness for technology. Now we can make friends of different gender, age and cultures over the Internet that we would never normally meet and with that experience our eyes become open to different ideas and possibilities.
So it's really great that you have posted out that hand of friendship and I would very much like to be your friend. Milly
