10 Scenarios You've Experienced As A Grown-Ass Adult Trying To Make Friends


Posted on

1. Playing the name game until it's deeply uncomfortable and your palms are sweaty


Your cousin's neighbor's dog is actually my best friend from high school's dog's sister and I'm going to cling to this connection until we're friends.

2. Close talking with strangers in the bathroom


"Ohmygod your hair is so luscious and beautiful you are a rockstar don't ever let anyone tell you otherwise ilysm let's be best friends forever."

3. Showing up to a party you were kind of invited to even though you don't know the birthday girl


Should I hug her? Shots for everyone! What should I do with my hands! I'm so awkward!

4. Going to happy hours with coworkers


Drink enough to seem fun, not too much to be the office drunk, and don't call anyone your work husband.

5. Actually following through with "let's totally grab coffee sometime!"


Am I saved in your phone as 'blonde girl from the gym?' Maybe. But I'm still going to aggressively pursue this friendship.

6. Being totally, totally cool with splitting the bill down the middle even though you ordered a water and a side of croutons because you're just a really chill girl


Oh, sure, I don't mind, have another cocktail on me. "I'm SO CHILL!" I yell, foaming at the mouth.

7. Subjecting yourself to book club or that kickball league


Me? No, I definitely already kicked, it's someone else's turn.

8. Spending an obscene amount of money on tickets to an Ariana Grande concert that is most definitely not worth it


I won't be the only one not in these pictures even if it costs me $100 and my dignity amongst tweens.

9. Stretching an inside joke to its absolute limits


Remember that time we gave those guys fake numbers? I'll tag you in semi-related funny Instagrams for months afterwards. Also, have you seen salt bae? Why not, I'll tag you in this too.

10. Lending that girl you met once your favorite dress


Oh, you don't have anything to wear to your friend's wedding? I may never see it again, but here take my dress because I'm a great person and you're now bound by the unspoken clothes-lending law to be friends with me.
