When was the last time you made a new friend?  And no, Facebook friends don't count.



A new study found our ability to make new friends peaks at age 23, then declines.  And the average adult hasn't made a new friend in FIVE YEARS.



Being too shy or introverted is the #1 reason people said they struggle to make friends as an adult.  And the second most common excuse is, "I don't go to bars anymore."



The top five also include:  "It's hard to break into someone's friend group" . . . "My family takes up all of my time" . . . and, "I don't have any hobbies where I meet new people."



Here are three more friendship stats from the survey . . .



1.  The average American has five good friends . . . three "best" friends . . . eight people they hang out with, but not one-on-one . . . another 50 casual acquaintances . . . and 91 people they're only friends with on social media.



2.  The top three places where we make lasting friendships are at work . . . in high school . . . and at college.



3.  And the top five characteristics of a good friend are honesty, trust, loyalty, kindness, and a good sense of humor.
