6 Ways To Make New, Mature Friends As An Adult

Making new & mature friends as an adult can seem scary in today’s world.

In our opinion, the best way to get through this crazy thing called life is to surround yourself with other amazing humans so you can support, uplift, and love each other through the good times and the bad! The only problem is, making new mature friends when you're not a kid can be really hard. Today, we’ve rounded up our best tips for making friends as an adult.


Join a workout class

An exercise class is one of the best places to find new friends. It’s a great way to meet people that have a shared interest, plus it will make you fit and healthy as a bonus! Making a friend at a workout class is great because you can start slow by booking the same workout classes and hanging out there and then branching out to other activities.


Bumble BFF

Bumble is a super well-known dating app, but did you know there’s a Bumble BFF option to meet new friends near you? People on the app are looking to make new friends, so there’s no shame in matching and sending a message because everyone is there for the same reason.


Take advantage of the women’s restroom (if you're a woman!)

If you’ve never made a friend in the women’s restroom you’re doing something wrong. The women’s restroom is the best place to compliment another woman on her hair, makeup, outfit, etc. 9 out of 10 times, she’ll be super appreciative and probably start some sort of conversation with you. The best time to try this tactic is while you’re out for drinks in a bar-like atmosphere. You may even end up having a drink together and making a long-term friend. If nothing else, you made a fellow woman feel good about herself, which is much needed in today’s society!

Connect on social media 

We’ve met some of our best friends through social media. Whether on Instagram or Twitter, find and follow cool people in your area. Connect with them by authentically interacting with their content, and chances are they’ll follow you back and friendship will blossom. Whenever you feel like the time is right, ask them to grab lunch, a coffee or a drink and see if you vibe in real life, too!


Volunteering is another awesome way to connect with new friends, and you can enrich your own life as well as the lives of others. Volunteering also connects you with people that share the same interests and values as you, like helping others.


Be a bold version of yourself

The best way to make a good friend is to be a good friend, and the most important tip is to be bold. Don’t be shy, reach out, connect with others! Don’t assume everyone is unfriendly. Chances are, they want to make new mature friends just like you do. And the best way to form quality friendships is to make sure you’re always being yourself, since that way you’re attracting like-minded people and people who actually like you for you.
