How To Find New Friends That Are Truly On Your Level

Making friends as an adult can be super tricky. After completing school it’s not unusual for the friends we saw all the time—and ourselves—to get busy with “life stuff” like moving to new cities, getting hitched, or family demands. And with careers in the mix, it’s easy to sacrifice social time in favor of an evening at home.


Go To Events…Alone

Although solo time is important, your connections with friends are an important part of maintaining your health and happiness. In fact, according to the former US surgeon general Dr. Vivek Murthy loneliness is “associated with a reduction in life span similar to that caused by smoking 15 cigarettes a day.”

So how do you make sure you’re not steeped in social isolation, and making those new connections? Well, it’s all about taking advantage of the best thing about adulthood: freedom. You get to make decisions about where you go and who you spend your time with, which means friendship opportunities are in your hands. It’s up to you to make and maintain them. A blessing and a curse, I know.

The bottom line is this: friendship takes effort. You have to work at it. It may not be as easy as it once was, and it may be awkward, but it’s worth it in the end. Here are some ways to push yourself into new social situations.
