Think about the last time you made a new friend? And Facebook friends don’t count. Probably challenging huh?
A new study found our ability to make new friends peaks at age 23, then declines. And the average adult hasn’t made a new friend in FIVE YEARS.
Being too shy or introverted is the #1 reason people said they struggle to make friends as an adult. And the second most common excuse is, “I don’t go to bars anymore.”
The top five also include: “It’s hard to break into someone’s friend group,” “My family takes up all of my time,” and, “I don’t have any hobbies where I meet new people.”
