"Some people think that the more mature we get, the easier we can bond with new friends. Others believe that the older we get, the more challenging relationships become. With age we might be less fl exible and more set in our ways. Lonely people often tend to regress to their childhood years. They become almost like children that seek their mothers nurturing and love. By reaching
out to others for attention or love, we expect to get this nurturing feeling that we are seeking in return. Those who accept and embrace certain realizations have a greater chance for long-term success with partners, friends, and employers.
For an older person that has a possessive, jealous streak could be challenging meeting new friends. It is always better to choose compatible friends to communicate and spend quality time with. Boring and nosy friends are nothing more than a disaster in a friendship. Try to get along with relatives and neighbors. If you fi nd it diffi cult, change sceneries, meet new people in your community, take a walk in a park, enjoy nature, and meet other nature lovers."
