Really it all depends on how much you travel and what your job is, if you work at an office you will probably make lots of friends in that place, if you travel around the world you will meet different people and make friends, I have traveled almost everywhere and from personal experience
I think that traveling is the best way to make friends as an adult. Or even business.

I'm still in high school so of course I don't know whether or not it's hard to. In my experiences, it's better to have few good friends than lots of asshole friends; No matter how desperate or lonely you are.
Personally, I'd rather want to be alone than spend time parties and noisy places.

It's harder to make "good" friends because you'll come to realize how many people are empty shells who try to create stories to promote themselves in others eyes. I'm very picky about who I keep around me. I have no tolerance for ignorance or stupidity.

Depends. But from my experience so far. Yes.I'm sure once I go to art school. I'll make more friends.

You're a terrible role-model, you know that?

Since I've began college I've made several friends that found themselves in a similar situation as myself; They were successful business people but just weren't satisfied or adequately challenged with what they were doing so went to college. We've also made friends with a few of the professors gotten drinks and traded stories. Something that younger students probably wouldn't do.

I can definitely empathize however, while I was working I rarely had time for friends.

There should be an age restriction for this thread... if you're under 24 you're still a kid...

Only issues I have is location isolation and most of the people are married or getting there.
Had I picked a house miles north or south of here, probably would have been easier to maintain some hang out time. Mid way between everything sounds nice on paper, but can be a pain.
As for the marriage part, 3rd/5th/umpteenth wheel status ain't always fun, and it makes things difficult when your gal is on the other side of the world serving the country.

When I was in high school, I had a core group of people I hung out with, and even into younger adulthood. I went off to college, and it was a lot easier for me to meet people. Fast forward several years, I struggled with addiction, and have since conquered it, but not without consequences. I drove off the people that were closest to me (ie, those friends I'd known since high school), and realized that most of the people I knew were only through bars, etc. Now, I struggle horribly to meet new people. My anxiety in social situations and even in everyday, normal situations tends to hold me back.

I spend most of my time alone, with my only social interaction coming from my job, and even that tends to be fairly limited.

Sometimes, I don't know how I do it, but then others, after an attempt at being social, I'm reminded why I'm so reclusive.

Ugh.

I would say it is. There are less opportunities to get to know people. without school it really only leaves work as a time that I frequently see the same people and get a chance to get to know them. I did however find a group of guys that I met online and after getting to know them for a while we started hanging out in person. They are now my closest group of friends.

I guess I'm not an adult yet, but I think... it would be harder, elementary school you're pretty much forced to hold hands and be friends, though it was still hard being the only asian. Highschool is hard enough, having to seem normal and everyone pretty much finds their own clique... I'd say highschool has been the best time in my life so far, even though I just graduated...
I HEARD university/college ti's hard to make friends cause of the varying classes... so... I'd imagine adult hood to be hard... We're not forced to cooperate, we're not grouped due to interests and no one is there to tie you together.

I don't want to grow up
