Making friends as an adult is difficult. We should learn from the children how to do it

blank

How do we make friends as adults? Secret glances over the beige clothes rails at H&M? Connect in the comments under the photo of a cute animal on Instagram? In line for the chiropractor? There are hundreds of people I have brilliant, lively, and engaging conversations with in my online messages, but they’re not friendships I’d like to take into real life.

I’ve done this a few times, but without the ability to respond to them with a series of crying and laughing face emojis when they’re actually in front of me in real life, the pressure is too much. Also, some of these people live in far away places like Connemara or Laois and object permanence is an issue for me. It’s not that I agree with the term “out of sight, out of mind,” but it’s sometimes difficult to maintain a connection with someone when we’re not in regular contact. Initiating that contact can be a lot of pressure when the oil well that lubricates social interactions is dry—and it’s always dry for me.
