I chose to be a (anti) social back when I was super young, I learned even then the toxic nature of people, this was before I realized I had the gift of seeing souls, guess I could tell by the content of their heart. based on that fact/knowledge that I only socialize with those with light souls, so, yeah it's hard to make friends, but I am fine without them. with my rare mental illness it truly doesn't matter, I am basically my own best friend.

Easier
But I was introverted; it could only really get easier and I wanted it to get easier, so it did.

I've always had problems making friends, so I'm finding it pretty much the same now that I'm an adult. lmfao I just kinda shrug it off and make friends online mostly nowadays.

Well yeah and no.

At this age is when I'm truly finding the people I really get along with. Of course, it takes time but it seems more real than the relationships you have on school or work.

(I honestly think that I cant make true friends at the workplace cuz everything is a façade. people pretend they like you cuz you work there and they have to deal with you every day so they don't want to look like assholes by being dicks to you so no one thinks badly of them or just simply to not bother with it. haven't you noticed that when you leave a workplace, hardly someone keeps in touch?)

That's what I think.

IMO its a mixed bag. I think its a lot easier to meet and become friendly with anyone you like once your an adult(vs. clique/social hierarchy in school) That said... I don't keep many friends now. I find I get agitated and uneasy in crowds so social gatherings in public places are kind of out the door. I enjoy actual human companionship though, but these days people place more importance in their phones and social media then their actual friends it would seem.

I've found it much easier to make friends as an adult.
I go to the gym twice a day, met a few guys there (we end up going out and having a few drinks every so often).
I'm very proactive in the neighborhood (via Nextdoor and the HOA).
This prompted a fair amount of activities (board game nights, video game nights, etc) that prompted some friendships.
Work is pretty much the same deal - kindred spirits dealing with the same application and have to compile the same code.

It takes more thought and effort to go out and socialize as an adult, since you're free to be as social or reclusive as you choose. Rather than being forced into social situations as a kid going to school, clubs, etc. Really depends on your interest in putting yourself out there.
