How many friends do you have? No, not social media friends. Real friends. According to a new survey, the average American has about 16 friends. Of these 16 friends, 3 were described as friends for life, 5 were people they really liked and would hang out with one-on-one, and the other 8 were people the respondents said they liked but would not spend time with one-on-one. The survey also found that the average American adult hasn’t made a new friend in five years.
More results: 45% said they find it hard to make new friends, 42% said their shyness prevented them from making new friends, and 45% said they would try to make new friends if they had more opportunities to do so. More Info: (The Ladders)
