Here are a few ways to find them:
Internet. Meet your friends' friends on Friendster. Join a local group on Meetup or Yahoo! Groups. Search the "platonics" on Craigslist or attend a public party on Evite.
Dance lessons. Somehow, moving around eases the tension of making new friends.
Adult schools and community centers. Remember how easy it was as a student? Whether it's a language, history, exercise or self-improvement class, there are dozens of potential friends in the classroom setting.
Places of worship. Most churches, temples and mosques offer community groups, where the focus is less on religion and more on companionship.
