Hi. Do you want to be my friend?

At small group last week we started talking about how challenging it can be to make new friends, especially when you get out of college. Every season of life has its own challenges when it comes to friendship, but honestly, making friends as an adult has been the biggest challenge yet. My husband pointed out that this isn’t like science camp when he was six. (Science camp at six?! Who did I marry?) He remembers a boy running up to him and starting a conversation with “Do you want to be my friend?”

That doesn’t work so well when you are 25 and talking to the person on the treadmill next to you. Awkward, much.

So what are some practical steps for growing friendship at any age?

That’s what we’re talking about this week and I hope you’ll stick around for the conversation.

Following and friending,
Ginger
