Would you become a friend with people who are not your age?

It's odd to me that some people here say no, they would only speak to people their age, and they also complain that they can't find language partners. Widen your scope, accept all potential speakers as partners and you might find many more choices are available to you.

Of course.  Age has nothing to do with friendship.

I have lots of friends who are 10+ years older or younger than I am. Just kind of happens in life not something people generally set out to do or to avoid.

Absolutely. I have friends of all ages. It's great talking to old people when they tell their stories of what life was like fifty or sixty years ago. This isn't history from a book, it's alive! Also often older people can help us put our problems into perspective when they tell us what kind of conditions they had to endure. Younger people are good too! They're fresh and optimistic. And it's good to be around that kind of energy too. Honestly, I just make friends with people I like regardless of age.

Yes, of course, I would! Because of the fact that there are a lot of very interesting themes to speake with old women or young men like reading books or watching movies. I know that it's really to go to the museum of art with person who older than you and to be friends with extremely young girl.
