How does anyone make friends after 30 years old? By 30 yrs old most people have gotten married, started a family (kids) and seems to have no free time to hang out. Most of my friends from high school and college have moved away or if they have not moved away they are immersed in family life. Making new friends (to me at least) is very awkward and not successful. By the age of 30 most people are very selective (including myself) and it seems not willing to invest time into a new friendship. It just seems very hard to make new friends after 30 yrs old. Your thoughts?
