Making New Friends After 50, From Dr. Gail Saltz (WATCH)

It's not always easy to make friends when your children are grown! When psychiatrist Dr. Gail Saltz joined me on Mondays With Marlo, she advised women over 50 to become active in a church or synagogue, join a gym or take up a new activity like a wine tasting class or bridge. You can also expand your network by asking existing friends to introduce you to women they pal around with.

For more, you can visit Gail's website at and follow @DrGailSaltz on Twitter.
