    Social media is the leading cause of social isolation. People in your generation are more likely to be depressed, less social etc...

    Not really, people who are older are often lonely and don’t have many friends because their generation grew up sending each other e-mails and letters whereas the younger generation have dozens of friends that they meet and keep in touch with through social media.

    What you call friends are not real friends. If you have 2-3 actual real friends you are lucky

    I did not say they were close friends which is what you’re referring to, I have like 4 close friends but we have a wider social circle of friends or acquaintances if you want to call them that which includes like 20ish people. Most younger people do as well.

    Yes and again it means little. Who counts acquaintances for anything. My neighbour is my acquaintance and he couldnt care less for me. The older you get the less friends people have because the more comfortable they become with themselves and compromise less on who they want to be around

    You should try out meetup.com
    I meet tons of people from different backgrounds and ages trough that site.
    If you're in a big city there are daily events!

    My social life is fantastic. I have 3 girlfriends. One for the weekend, one for days and the other for the night. I have over 200 friends, I go to masjid, play basketball, soccer, go swimming every friday night, movies every saturday. During summer, I go camping for 2 weeks. Plus many more activities. My life is full of happiness, I never get bored. I come on sspot to diss/troll folks from enemy qabil or annoying pple.

    Welcome to Adulthood. I work nearly 60 hours a week - Monday to Friday. I'm up as early as 4am, and don't get home until atleast 11pm. So by when, the weekend rolls on: I'm shattered, and have no energy to go out socialise with mates, with the family taking up my priority.

    In any case, my list of friends is as short as my pinky finger. Alhamdulillah, I've done very well for myself, in regards to my career and financial state. I've got a wonderful job, own my own home, and a full wallet - with money saved for a rainy day. For me to have achieved this, I've had to sacrifice my social life.

    Sometimes, sacrifices like this, is needed.

    I'm working as student assistant for a few hours a day, while also studying at my university. Most of my social life consistes of friends from uni and some as well from work (although they are a bit mad). I'm also dabbling in with the younger community of somalis, where I currently live. But, I don't see them that much as I would like to, if i had time. ( I see them only at the mosque, and arranged events such as weddings)

    I would suggest get out there volunteering, joining Meetup etc. once you graduate and have more time. Right now you're busy but when you get a full time job you'll have more time and you don't wanna hit a wall of loneliness.

    Any friends from work or school? At least one? Your young still. You should have at least 1 or 2 close gfs you can hang out with and do things with like shopping, going out to eat, chit chatting on the phone, etc. You need friends, its healthy.

    I moved to a new country to be with my hubby a year ago. I'll start my language courses soon so I can't wait to make new friends. But back at home, I had 6 close gfs and we always hung out on weekends they had kids and I didn't but we did family type activities. You need friends honey. Social media doesnt count. You need real life interactions, it'll help your social skills, gets you out the house when you meet up with someone and it's a breath of fresh air.

    The last time I had a friend was in 2016. I’m not as busy as you are either, just don’t know how to make friends. I even tried those “find a friend” apps but they never want to meet in RL. I do have a friend date this Tuesday though that I met on tinder so let’s hope that goes well
