Pick up a hobby, join a club or class related to that. Buy a camera and go to photography seminars and see if anyone is interested in learning with you. Join a beginners bowling league. Start playing Dungeons and Dragons and hang out at local games stores and pop each other's zits, or whatever. Just like, leave the house.

most people I've seen with new adult friends, get them from work (find a job that you like and/or heavy on your demographic) or are extremely sociable and will start chatting to anyone nearby if they ever find themselves alone in a public place.

or there's also going full "adult" and going to activities and events purely to make friends over shared interests (though it is always daunting going into it as a loner, helps if you have siblings or something to drag along initially)


myself, I ditched all the school friends a long time ago, work with people I have no interest in and don't care so much about having friends to go out of my way to make them at all the gigs and other events I attend


this thing always reminds me of reminds me of http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1155056/. and I fear I might in that position of not having a best man/etc or people to even fill out my side of the room, don't even have brothers or female friends to fall back on as "best man". kinda hoping if I ever get married that it's a small one for this reason lol.

Same in a way

All my closest friends were made in the last year of school, and there's only 4 of them left in my life now. So including my 3 immediate family members and 1 grandparent, I'd bring about 7 people to a wedding lol.

If anyone is in need of a best man for their wedding with open bar, I volunteer!

I think you need to step out of your comfort zone. Compliment someone on a shirt you like at the grocery store. Make small talk with the guy or girl standing in line with you at the theater or bank. You have to be social, first and foremost, I think.

While I do like the idea of joining a club to meet people in principle, you'd have to take into account that the only people you'd be meeting are the people who would join a club

I've made a couple adult friends since I've started working that I hang out with outside of work and I'm the least sociable person I can think of, step up your game guys

Just ask somebody you get along with to go grab some food after work or something it's like nbd

Just marry a girl with a lot of brothers.


EDIT: Many of my friends are people I found trying to form bands on Craigslist. We met up for a beer to discuss what direction we were interested in, found out it wouldn't work, bu then just stayed friends. In fact, now that I think of it, my side at my wedding was full of people I didn't meet until after high school.

Hobby / interest meetups is a good way to go.

I recently started going to Cars n Coffee events and have not only made some new friends, but realized that these things are great for meeting important people. Expensive interest = wealthy enthusiasts = in a position of influence

...modes and scales are still useless.

Get locked up for a long, long time. Prison friends are the only true adult friends worth having.

Go join clubs or groups for things you like. Or start smoking cigarettes and make conversations with people. Become a regular at a coffee shop. Volunteer at a farm. Join AA. Join a church. Volunteer for anything really. Join a darts team at the pub.

I have newer school friends and stuff, but I haven't made a new friend that I will actually hang out with in my spare time in like 5 years. It's still the same group of people from the end of highschool/first year of college.

wut. do you wanna watch netflix sometime or something?


actually yeah it is harder to find friends who will just fart around with me now but I am kind of relieved honestly; my husband and I are super busy and a lot of our free time used to get dominated by our friends showing up and wanting to play mario kart or bitch about their lives

Do I understand correctly that you have mario kart?

I think the scariest/most awkward thing about trying to make new friends as a younger adult (mid twenties) is the possibility of them thinking you're picking up on them. Asking a dude out for food can easily be misunderstood these days.

I have an addiction to looking at CL missed connections ads so that may be causing that fear lol. Whatever you do, don't join a gym and go in the sauna room. I've seen far too many ads about dudes just starting to beat off in there.

You, good sir, have not gone over to your friends house after a hard night of drinking to find 2 dudes passed out in the same room both holding their own flaccid cocks in hand, passed out, with porn on the tv.

no but the dudes I lived with had the console and another friend bought the game so he could play it with me and my husband at the house (because the two of us are sick nasty at mario kart)

I used to do this for all my teenage years but then I realised that I didn't actually believe the stuff and so every time I played bass for the church band I was singing a lie and lies make the baby jesus sad
so I stopped going quite abruptly and didn't keep in touch with my friends there because I'm bad at talking to people

I mean I get it, but I have this awful thing where I assume no one likes being around me (even though I've been told many times it's not true) so I just don't even try to hang out with anyone but my old friends. It's really dumb, and I hate it, and I have no idea why I do it.
