Finding someone to befriend

Sholay09Sholay09 Posts: 131 The Mix Convert
Hi I am Shola and I'm 18 years old and I really need someone maybe like a woman that's middle aged around in their 40s, 50s or 60s who I can trust, always be there for me when I feel scared, down or sad, when I have a lot of problems or issues and for them to love and comfort me how would I be able to find someone like that and where would I need to go?

    Hi Shola,

    Have you tried to find a local befriending network in your area? I've just had a look on google and there is a directory of befriending networks here: http://www.befriending.co.uk/befriendingdirectory.php

    I'm not sure how easy it would be to find someone who meets your request in terms of age, but you may be able to meet some people who meet some of your requirements this way.

    It may also be worth discussing with a health professional how you are feeling, as they may be able to offer you some support with how you are curently feeling.

    I hope this helps.
