College; the golden years. When parties were a weekend tradition, rather than a once in a blue moon-type event. One of the key aspects of college is the social situation, as thousands of young students are placed into dormitories and classrooms for their entire daily schedule, and allowed to socialize with other fellow students. Enter adulthood however, and the chance of encountering new people you can bond with, and transform into friends, becomes significantly less present. There exist a few explanations for this:

The Lack of Time Theory: according to a recent study by Real Simple and the Families Work institute, the vast majority of all women between the ages 25 and 54 reported their daily free time to be less than 90 minutes a day, with 29% stating their inability to even enjoy 45 minutes. This is disappointing, but understandable, as people’s perceived focus limits them to social interactions with their existing friend groups to maintain relationships as opposed to expanding into new ones.

The Lack of Necessity Theory: Some of the best stories of your youth comes from the early high school and college days, as in the era friendships were a social and personal requirement. You no longer had a family or spouse to rely upon for adventures, and simply went out with your friends to the local ski mountain for a few hours. However, as an adult, this no longer becomes a necessary aspect of your life, as it’s no longer as simple as asking your classmates to study for your next exam.
