7 Reasons Why You Are An Adult With No Friends

October 14, 2021

Everyone knows navigating friendships as an adult is an extreme task, but have you ever thought that you could be the problem? Making friends as an adult is quite hard and you aren’t doing enough to make friends. We are here to help you look inward and realize why you are an adult with no friends.

Here are some reasons why you are an adult with no friends.

1. You are bestfriends with your house.

You probably can’t remember the last time you saw the sun and the thought of leaving your house fills you with so much pain and discomfort.

2. You are close friends with your job.

You like your job almost as much as you like your house. Your job probably doesn’t like you as much as you like it, but carry on.

3. You spend a lot of time watching TikTok videos.

All that time you spend on TikTok can be spent making friends. We need you to know that people on TikTok aren’t your friends and although they make you laugh for long hours doesn’t mean they’ll listen to your rants. You’ll need real-life friends for that.

4. You haven’t tried using dating apps.

You probably think dating apps are for relationships and sex alone and you won’t bother to try them out. There’s nothing wrong with using dating apps, you could meet someone who’ll give your partner a run for their money and make a few friends while at it.

5. You haven’t made out time to mould your friends from scratch.

You need to mould the types of friends you want, but you’ve been too busy with work to get to it. All you need to do is clear your schedule so you can take matters into your hands and mould your perfect friends.

6. Your life revolves around your partner.

You are stuck to your partner like superglue. When they move, you move — a match made in heaven.

7. You have bad eating habits.

You eat lafun, semo and winged termites and somehow expect people to be friends with you. O wrong nau.
