Adult friendships can be tricky. They're not as fragile as the friendships of the teenage years, when something as simple as your pal going to Starbucks with someone else can shake your relationship to its foundations; but neither is it like primary school, where you can just go up to someone in the playground and decide you are now best friends for ever.
Making friends as an adult can be difficult. As we get older, life changes can affect existing friendships, and adulthood can make forging new ones harder than it was in adolescence. But it is possible to make new friends in adulthood with a few simple steps.
Remember how easy it was to make friends in elementary school? Most of the time your best friends ended up being the kids in your class or in your neighborhood. Or maybe you were best friends with kids whose parents were friends with yours. As a child, making friends wasn't as complicated as it feels today.
