How Do Adults Even Make Friends?!


Making friends seems harder the older I get. I had a good group of friends in elementary and middle school. As I moved onto high school it was a little harder because I moved around quite a bit. During college it wasn’t too hard to make friends, especially during the years I lived on campus. Now that I’m out of college I find making friends so difficult.

I have job, but it’s a therapist position so I don’t have coworkers I interact with; the majority of my work is done with my clients and supervisor. This has left me feeling totally at loss when it comes to making friends. Where am I even going to meet people?

I think about volunteering and joining groups but since I’m such an introvert I would much rather chill at home. I know this doesn’t help when it comes to making friends. That being said, it would be nice to have people to go out with since most of the people I am friends with no longer live in my area. I’m just tired of doing things alone and honestly it would be great to have more people to talk to.

I mean it must be possible because everyone I know has a group of friends. I just can’t help but wonder if there’s something wrong with me.

Why can’t it be as easy as middle school?

    I suggest you search a hobbie and go for it! that way you’ll meet people in a comfortable way. I say that cause I used to be very shy and introvert as well. I found myself a new hobbie and got used to tall to people.

    Nope, nothing wrong with you. It’s hard to make friends as an adult introvert. Can you find events where everyone is doing something? (vs. a purely stand-around-and-chat social gathering) I find those a lot easier to navigate.
