I’ve had the same conversation with other friends in their late 20s and 30s and 40s … how the fuck do you make friends as a grown up? I was reminded of a question we got recently from a reader asking about making friends, saying, “I’m not cool like Ariel so I can’t just meet people out dancing.

Like having Sunday football parties or fighting in Home Depot about what color to paint an accent wall in our living room. We made complex weekday dinners to distract ourselves from the fact that we were both pretty bored with each other.
I certainly wasn’t expecting mine to be a never-married, still-partying hearty guy in his early 30s; but he’s grown up a lot, and I’ve stayed open minded, and we get along like a house on fire. I truly do expect to be with him until death do us part.

The thing about grown-up love is this—we are not going to be able to get it until we learn to be grown up ourselves! We have to become the type of person we want to be to be able to attract the same qualities in another. Or at the very least to be able to keep it once we have attracted it.
