TENNIS.... lots of teams to join at any age/ability level. ALTA and USTA are all about socializing and having fun.
There are so many ways to meet people, especially if you join a church or live in a neighborhood with clubs for readers, card players, etc.

Do you mean friends or associates, I think the term friend is being used loosely here. What is the true definition of a "friend"

Do people tell you that you have good characteristics to be a friend?

I would highly recommend you joining meetup.com here and you will have the tools available to make great friends
I second meetup. There are a ton located in all 3 locations and to be honest, most meet-ups I have been to in Georgia are empty nesters majority. But this is my experience. You will most likely see it as easy finding people your age.

That depends on who you ask. To me a friend is someone you can relate to well and someone you feel as ease around. Any friendship based on material stuff isn't true friendship. True friends are there for you and true friends are friends forever. By the last statement I mean if you and a friend were to move away from each other, you wouldbstill keep in contact.

I would start with a hello. I know that this seems so simple but some people will straight up ignore you and give you a weird look.

I moved to Roswell from a NY suburb six years ago in OPs age group and have made some very good friends. Not just acquaintances but people who are always there for me and those who have moved away and we still keep in touch.

When I first got here, I made a huge effort to try new things, groups at least three times even if it meant getting out of my comfort zone. If you make an effort, you will love living here (especially in the winter).

Play tennis in an ALTA mixed doubles league.

And if you're swingers, there's several neighborhoods up in North Fulton that will suit your lifestyle!
