Lonely and would love to make new friends

To chat and maybe meet up discuss general life with a little support through life's ups and downs. I have lived in the Eastbourne area for the last 5 years and find it difficult to meet new people and make friends. Would love to make friends in 40 - 50 age group.

Its very difficult to make new friends as an adult especially if you suffer from social anxiety or are shy and I know that a lot of people are looking to make close female friends

Loners/Londoners United

This is an open group where all topics close to the heart are all welcome. As the name indicates it's kinda aimed at people from London but you that are observant may have noticed the pun - so it's not exclusive to only Londoners but anyone who's lonely or socially isolated and will love to connect with like-minded people are very welcome to join.

Sorry, there are no locations to map
