  • Of course. My closest friends are ones I met in my 20's and beyond. I couldn't tell you where my best friends from high school are.

  • Yes, I have made some REAL friends in the last year, since we changed churches.

  • My best friend and truthfully my only REAL friend I think I have ever had is a woman I met when I was 26 and she was 22. Why would being an adult mean you can't make REAL friends? I also think that teenagers are less likely to be REAL friends then much more mature adults would be.

  • Absolutely! I have made a few!

  • I hope so - I am 32 and have yet to find any in person though :)

  • Yes we can, I have a handful of good friends all made as an adult. I just think we changed our definition of friend as we get older. At five a friend is anyone who happens to be riding by on a scooter, as a teenager a friend is the entire school and their cousins dog walkers best friend ( going by the 2000+ friends they seem to have on facebook) By adult hood you realise the difference between a true friend and an acquaintance.
