Making new friends as a grown-up can be difficult, especially once you are out of school and live in a new city, which is why this infographic discusses how to meet adult friends. From Business Insider, 'How to Make Friends When You're a Grown-Up' explains social science-backed factors that are necessary and how to make them happen in adulthood.
According to sociology, proximity, unplanned reactions and privacy are key elements to making friends. To meet adult friends, there are ways to make all three available, but it takes some effort. Getting out of the office, becoming a regular at your favorite spots and going out and doing activities you like are all suggestions the infographic makes. It also recommends making people feel like they matter, going out and eating with your colleagues and exchanging confidences. Whether it's getting in touch with people you used to know or new people, having ridiculous shared experiences is a great way to bond.
