Generation Lonely? A new survey has found that Millennials are the loneliest generation. According to the survey, 27% of Millennials have no close friends, 25% have no “acquaintances” and 22% say they have no friends at all. Only 9 percent of Baby Boomers and 15 percent of Gen Xers reported having no friends. 33% of the Millennials surveyed also reported feeling lonely often or always, compared with 20% of Gen Xers and 15% of Baby Boomers.
But it’s not all bad news … 49% of Millennials said they had one to four “close friends” and 70% said they had at least one “best friend.” And 38% of Millennials said they had made a new friend in the last six months. (NY Post)
