How To Make Loyal Friends After College

    Hello dearest Gabrielle.
    Obviously, I am on this page because I “wish” I had a loyal friend! I have yet to follow your advice and adopt a dog for one day. But for now, I sometimes take my cat to the park to eat grass, and many many people approach to talk to us. But it ends there!
    It so happens, I have been at the hair salon today. I overheard the lady next to me mention that she wasn´able to do this or that because she was too old. Our eyes met once since there were a few inches of separation between us. I showed little interest. besides, she was not speaking with me. However, before greeting everyone present at the shop a “Happy and safe holiday”, I excused myself for butting in and said to her, dear Lady, you aren´t old (she had mentioned she was 58) a bit oversized perhaps. So I told her that I came from the USA and that people of the age of 99+1/2 from the State of Florida were still going dancing as long as their feet were allowing them to walk. So please never say again that she was too old to do a thing. We had a good 10-12 minutes chat. But here in Verona Italy where I reside, this is as much conversation I am going to have with someone. I do not often find anyone with whom I have got much in common. At least not enough to push us to want to meet again. I don´t wish to seem needy neither. I´ve learned to appreciate a chat and then go my merry way. Should I be lucky enough to find a kind person who wishes to speak back that is!
    I strongly dislike Whats´App and wonder if I would be luckier if I were connected! I used to suffer a lot but now have accept that this is the way it is here. Just the same I was wondering if there was a miracle answer for me out there.
    Thanks and have a wonderful new year 2022 dear Gabrielle.
