How to Make Friends 101
I wear a lot of hats. I guess a lot of people could say that these days, but since I’m part-time employed in a few places in this town, it really does pertain to me! One of the things I love to do is ‘The Chat’ in the Rochester Post-Bulletin with Jen Koski and a handful of other fab women. The topic this weekend is about ‘finding your tribe,’ which we decided can be hard to do when you are a grown-up.
Lo and behold, today an article about how to make friends popped up in my radio prep pages. According to the article, in 1985 most people said they had three close friends, by 2004 the most common number was zero. This is certainly something I’ve noticed in my life. Most of the friends that I have at this stage of life are either co-workers, parents of my kids’ friends, or people at my church. (Shout out Christ United Methodist! Woot, woot!)
It’s been a while since I’ve had to “make friends.”
Anyway… check out the article. At the least, it’ll give you something to think about.
