If managing 10-20 good friends is too much for you to juggle, then another option is to start hosting dinner parties (or other group gatherings) with your newly robust social circle.
Your friends will benefit from meeting each other, and you will get the added bonus of being seen as the connector who brings your likeminded friends more value in their lives.
So to summarize…
– fill your life with play, and join or host a few groups
– when you meet people you like, be interested in them, be vulnerable with them, and then tell them that you want to be their friend directly
– keep the momentum going by continuing to invest in your friendships, extending yourself to them regularly, and hosting group activities for your tribe to meet and connect with each other
You can make friends as an adult easier than you might have once thought. It will simply require courage and effort.
I wish you the best of luck in this endeavor.
Dedicated to your success,
