When Katie Patel moved to Iowa in spring she was new to the Midwest and out of her comfort zone. Between college, moving and marriage, this wasn't the first time Patel was faced with starting over socially. It's one solution to a not altogether uncommon problem - making friends as an adult. Once you age out of parent-arranged playdates, alphabetized seating charts, after-school activities and college dorm asments, just how is a person supposed to go about meeting someone with whom to share a laugh, not a lifetime?

It's hard enough trying to meet someone for a romantic relationship.

At least, then, if you find someone's single, it's fair to assume they're also on the market, so to speak. Some adults are perfectly set with their immediate family at home.

Or maybe an extended conversation reveals you have less in common than ly thought. You don't have to be their friend. You just have to find them. Knowing what you want will help you find like-minded people. It will be easier and less threatening for you to start making new friendships if you already have something in common with the people you are meeting. This may not lead to close friendships, but it will get you used to talking to new people while doing something good.

If you are already belong to a church, temple, political group, etc. If there's someone at work you can see yourself hanging out with after hours, ask them to dinner.
