She always asks me how she can make friends but has not taken my advice. She is from a far eastern country and sometimes it is hard to understand her. I have suggested a group of foreign women on Facebook but she thinks they will all be lesbians, another group meet in the pub but she doesn't drink. She did try a ukulele group but they were all hippy types. I'm beginning to think she doesn't really want to make the effort and her latest thought is that everyone is racist. I don't know what more I can do to help her.
But she s making assumptions because she’s scared and trying to find a justifiable reason why she can’t go to all these things being suggested She needs one friend not hundreds ….others will follow If she’s not only got a job ( no mean feat in a foreign country) but keeping it and doing well then her accent can’t be that bad Is she living near you ? How long has she been in U.K.? Maybe you re not giving her time You mention her sister, is she here too or do you mean in phone conversation It’s not all about language she may have very different ideas about things a different take on things a different upbringing she may not be Westernised ( lucky some might say) R maybe you’re trying to hard and just let her settle and things will happen as time goes on
