I need a Friend.
Yesterday, I went to a knitting group at a public place, a bookstore for the 2nd time. This young girl, ( younger than me) was sitting there. She had on a beautifully knitted, cable style poncho on ( lightweight yarn), and she was knitting another.
She introduced herself to me and asked several questions. “ I’m looking for a friend my age”, most people here are over 60 years old, what age are you? I’m looking for a friend?”
Now, as far as I can recall, when people meet there is a gradual process. One may meet at a place with similar interests, start a small conversation, find some common ground. . And on another occasion, meet again for a similar event, and maybe talk again, and one or the other makes the first move to invite to meet for coffee, or lunch. Actually, in this era of internet, there is Meet-ups, and meet-ups works upon the concert of area of interest.
I dodged the question of how old are you? I’m not the same age group as she.
I did suggest other locations that I knew of that have knitting groups, like churches and a yarn shop at a nearby town.
I hope she succeeds in finding a friend, and eventually more than one friend.
Have you ever heard the words, I need a Friend?
