I did actually write up a list of friendship level classifications years ago: Level 1 "You might be kinda cool, but I don't want to tell you much of anything.” 1a: Acquaintance, semi-cordial 1b: Acquaintance, friendly 1c: Friend, early stages, casual Level 2 “I like you; you're nice, and I kind of want to tell you things, but that might weird you out.” 2a: Friend, willing to hang out sometimes, but not share personal stuff 2b: Friend, will share the occasional semi-personal thought 2c: Friend, will have deep-ish conversations late at night Level 3 “Hey, I killed a man once. You're cool with that, right?” 3: Friend who knows way too much and whom you might actually call on the phone

And then it gets even more interesting when you enter adulthood with a chronic illness and all your existing friends are healthy and continuing with their lives like normal people. xP

Good friends that care about you and want to spend time with you are a special breed that are hard to find.

Yeah.. I'm finding it easier as an adult actually.
Brenna Choisser (3 months ago)
This is so true! Don’t even get me started on moving to a new state as an adult! Friends become a thing of the past.

Maybe it helps, but I've built Compatipal (http://compatipal.com) for exactly this reason. Describe yourself with short attributes (tags), say "JustinBieber" and "Slipknot"... then find others with an interesting combination of tags in your proximity and contact them, or let others find you. The coolest new feature IMO is the map, where you can actually see how people from around the the world share your interests. The main problems I faced were: Where do you find people when you spend 95% of your time at home/work? And: I believe part of the reason, why I don't want to talk to just anybody I meet on the street is not because I'm an introvert, but rather because it's highly inefficient to talk to hundreds of people and spend hours of awkward conversation just to maybe find one that I can get along with. If you want, you can enter your location and up to 4 tags, it's free (just use your spam email adress if you don't trust me...). The vision is to someday find your true soulmate(s) with a few clicks.

I loved his sentence. "Introverts: it gets better when you get older."
Sarah Collier (3 months ago)
It gets SO much worse in your 30's! And being self employed is basically the kiss of death, because so many friends are made at a job. You hit the nail on the head with all of this.

I’ve always struggled to make friends but now that I’m an adult, it’s been SO hard to make friends. So thanks for this advice!!

Hey, wanna be my friend? Oh boy, I did not see this coming few years ago.
Rosalie (4 months ago)
This is so relatable. My fiancée and I try to make plans with our “good friends” and it seems like everyone is extremely busy with work or school! It’s hard being an adult with a full time job and making plans with people. It rarely works out so then we just end up hanging out with each other all the time 😂😂

my brother was watching friends when I was watching this
Meowmocha (4 months ago)
Woah, I'm an adult! 'Cause I don't feel I know how to make friends any more! "Making friends is harder when older. There's just not that many places to make friends." So it's not just my imagination, then. I don't have Netflix, so I guess when I'm not pet-sitting at houses with Netflix, I'll let YouTube and Twitter be my cradles to the grave. As a kid, making friends is easier, because it's just going up to a kid and saying, "Hey, wanna play?" 'Adults'. Everyone's last name is Taylor, though, so the 'four lovable losers' must all know each other at least somewhat. XD

1:48 that's how i feel about school. i havent hung out with someone since april because of it. im extremely introverted and am so mentally drained after school that i just go home and stay alone (i had online school all summer). 4:00 they never fell in my lap either, back when i actually tried to make friends....for 5 years straight with no success:/

Tips for making friends: 1. Buy an ugly orange couch 2. Have coffee 3. Never ever under any circumstances mention being on a break! 4. Enjoy your wealth of quirky new friends

It’s important to find good adult friends to watch Star Wars Clone Wars with. Netflix alone in the gave as you said does not have to be an option.

Welp. Good to know I'm actually an adult? But seriously, all of this rings so true to me, it's crazy.

Hey, Blimey cow, could you make a video about fitting in with a new church/youth group?

"So let's start havin' babies." #blimeycownuggetsoftruthandwisdom 😂 "So unless you start making a concerted effort to put yourself out there, Netflix will slowly cradle you to your grave one lonely night at a time." 😂

"Get plugged in... it's a church term" 😂😂😂 that one tickled me. You've got to get plugged in to a friendship group so you can start doing life together, right? 🙄
Agnes Jeffery (4 months ago)
All of my experience is the exact opposite of this. It's easy for me to make friends and just ask if they want to hang out. It was much harder as a kid without a drivers license and parental supervision.

The categories of friends you described I would call: 1. Strangers 2. Acquaintances 3. Friends

When you become an adult, you decide that you are either going to want your life to be about something more important than you are, or you do not. You shouldnt have to return to the miserable conformism of high school to have friends. You ought to be able to have friends who are about the same things you care about, but if you can't find any, then maybe all you will have is friendly acquaintances at best. It just isn't worth it to play the game all your life. If all you do is play the game, "being" the thing that they will "accept", you have no friends, anyway, and you have selfishly, stingily given them nothing. Whereas, if all your sincere efforts to _be_ a friend _to_ people result in no one being a friend back, you have at least been a real friend to some people.
Mcfirefly2 (4 months ago)
Most so-called adults are about nothing more than making money and putting on a big, successful-looking front, and their friends are mostly allies in that struggle, not human brings that care for each other deeply, who are loyal to each other. But life is more than a fashion statement. I keep thinking that _Dover Beach_ is a Christian poem; it ought to be.

BRUH THIS IS SO TRUE!!!! How do adults even meet other adults though??? Forget starting a friendship. I can’t even find people to meet! XD I don’t like going out so I want other friends who also don’t like going out. But if they don’t like going out either where am I supposed to look for them???? Ughhhhhhh

Good grief, I've just been thinking about this. It's really bad because I feel like my small town just doesn't have many people my age at all, much less ones that have interests and goals like mine. I want to move, but I can't afford anywhere else right now so.... guess I'll chill with my dogs. 😂

or you could just find some people you work with...all of my friends (as an adult) are from where i've worked in the past, maybe a select few from church. The bloopers wee the best Josh, greatest bit yet!
Mayo Jaylaylo (4 months ago)
Even as a kid though, it gets harder to make friends the older you get. I really only have 4 or 5 friends that I'm really close with now, even though I had a bunch of friends when I was little. Oh well *shrug*

Being a adult trying to make friends + allergies. When you shake new persons hand during introductions. And your hand starts swelling and changing colors! Because they had unknown to you been eating potato chips. Also trying to keep a not terrified look on your face, When your new nice neighbor hands you a plate of peanut butter cookies... You simply smile say Thank you so much! Close the door. Drop the plate of Horror! on the first surface you see! And run to the sink to wash your hand's. While calling your sibling who can eat peanuts to come take it away!

I've been realizing how true this is ever since I finished high school. It feels so weird to do something just to make friends 😂

See if you go to church you automatically have something better than friends, you have family, and if you're married you don't exactly need friends from my experience, I'm not married, but that's what my grandparents say

Dang. If how hard it is to make friends is the metric we're using for being an adult, then I guess I was an adult at 8. "Sorry, can't come to your party.

What really sucks is when couples act like you're a plague to be avoided because you're single. People suddenly have time for you once you're married though.
EmethMatthew (4 months ago)
Yes! Please make this ADULTS a recurring show about the extroverted couple who are dying inside because they can't make friends and the introverted couple who just kinda want to be left alone...
