I was about to post the same thing. Finding friends is the 'easy' bit, but nurturing those friendships, so that they last... that's the difficult part.

I am not sure I would call it "finding friends", more like "finding people with who to communicate".

Why friendships don't last is because, well, I guess, due to society and the way people's lives are. Everyone is so busy and there are only so many things you can concentrate on. So it probably happens naturally that if you are not among 5-10 things in the center of other people's lives, you kind of fall to the wayside sooner or later.

Because any person meets way more than 5-10 people, sometimes even during one day, lol. Can't keep all of them in the center of attention.

Also... People are excited to see new people from time-to-time. But they lose interest soon, because they realize you do not have much to offer in their lives, and they carry on with their everyday activities and also the cycle of meeting new people and learning new things carries on too.

Know the feeling. The world these days can't go 2 minutes without thinking about sex. The internet, real life, you name it, people have become mindless drones. 

I feel incredibly alone right now. The saddest part is, I always will. It's become too much to ask for people to 1) stop thinking about themselves, 2) stop thinking about sex and 3) think outside their bubble just for 10 minutes of their life to comfort another human being in a non judgmental manner.

I know.
Sometimes, I'd like a girl to cuddle.
Not sex. Not to play rub a dub or something. Just cuddle. Just someone to hold to that helps me think everything is going to be alright. A presence. Someone to hold on to, for no reason whatsoever than just holding on.
Seems like it used to be commonplace. Feels like the world left it behind in it's rush to automatise everything. Including people.

Meeting friends on the internet can work in the right places and right communities. Usually around a hobby or common interest is easiest. There some dodgy people too ofc.
I don't really have that many real friends irl mostly just people I talk to at extracurricular stuff or studies. But they are ok just not that close or whatever I suppose I just don't have that reason to or if i do I'm just too scared to ask yipes

i tried different avenues for finding friends since.

i guess different places work for different people.

i went clubbing and didnt like it. too much alcohol, loud music, people i dont know.

i tried playing chess at the mall. much less people but its more personal.

Friends aren't something that you find (look for).

I have to admit- as a comparatively young kid not even out of high school who has issues making friends despite being surrounded by similarly-aged people every day, it's pretty worrisome seeing adults talk about having issues making friends.

does it really get that much worse?
