In the Words series, the RU Student Life writers are posed a question, and in words they each offer their insights. The older I get, the more I realize how much effort is required to grow and sustain friendships.
Responsibilities have a way of overriding our lives as we age. While old friends are usually understanding, it can be hard to take a new friendship from ground to blast off even if you have a big friend crush on them. For instance, you might not have time between your two hectic schedules to hang out, but sending them a text wish them luck on their interview or following up on their Tinder date shows them that you interested about in this budding friendship.
Another great way to date new friends is to invite them to you to events you think they might also be interested in. I know I often feel insecure being the inviter, but I try to remind myself that they might be in the same boat. Who knows? Maybe they feel insecure inviting me and secretly hope I invite them. When I was younger I would make friends by bonding over similar interests. When I met my best friend at 11 years old, we were talking about coffee so naturally I said something about Lorelai Gilmore.
But sometimes just saying yes, opening yourself up to people that are different from you and indulging in interests that are different from your own can be surprisingly eye-opening and rewarding, and it might just lead you to your new best friend. Can I add her on Facebook yet?
Is it cool if I follow him on Instagram?
What if I Snapchat her a funny video of my dog? When I make new friends as an adult these are the questions I ask myself. It was a lot easier when I was 5-years-old and all I had to do was hide with someone during a game of tag. It really helps when the latter is involved because it strips away a layer of seriousness that sometimes gets in the way of getting close with someone else. Sometimes these interactions are really awkward but other times you hit it off and make a new friend.
Do you find it harder or easier to make friends as you get older? Let us know RUStudentLife.
