    That's a really sad statistic.

    • I worked from the office last Friday for the first time since April 2019, and it was so, so weird. A few of my co-workers also went in to start cleaning out our cubes. I recycled 22 years worth of documentation.

      I thought I wanted to go in and work, but I think I'd be fine with 1-2 days a week. I disliked it more than I thought I would. Plus the lighting gave me a headache after a few hours. How on Earth did I do that every single day for 20+ years?

      The company is back to requiring masks outside your personal work space, so that's another good reason to stay at home.

        Not really. I’ve only made a couple friends at work. I’ve tried to keep my two lives separate and only a handful of people do I hang out with outside of work regularly.
        I think I invited five or six to my wedding?

          I will occasionally have a drink with my coworkers/employees after work. And since a few of us really like fishing, we might do a day of fishing like once or twice a year. But yeah, otherwise I keep work and personal life separate. I won't even accept friend requests from anyone in my company on Facebook (yes I still use Facebook but it's carefully curated so I rarely if ever see any derp)

            Sic's on-brand cruelty aside, it doesn't speak well of me, and I know that.

            I have several Work Friends, but I have an eye on developing Real Friends now.

            Dr. Mrs. has many friends but they are typically 4s-6s on the intimacy scale (where say your best childhood/college friend is a 9). I don't really consider true friendship to start until you're in the 7s.

            It is difficult to form really close friendships as an adult.

              My work friends are some of my closest friends.

              moving back to Minnesota when you’re 30 is terrible. Everyone is married and Minnesotans are famous for not expanding friendships beyond what they’ve always had.

              I struggled making new friends as an adult. So I ended up friends with some people I work with.

              guess I don’t really care where they come from.

              • I have not had a whole lot of close friends, but I have moved a significant distance quite a few times and have left behind some very good ones. My loss.

                  Cripes are we ever. As I and others have moved, and then the pandemic, I suddenly find that I have very few friends.

                    For you.

                    For me, it became easier after I came out and I started attracting my people.

                    My Meijer co-workers I generally wouldn't hang out with because most of them are in their early 20s and don't know much about anything.

                          I probably took it wrong. I thought you were accusing me of something. If not, I apologize.

                              Hmm nope, I was kind of agreeing with you. A bunch of people were all “we aren’t friends with colleagues” so I was saying how for some, like me, it is a big source of friendships and socializing

                                Again, sorry. I was being a dink. How unusual for me.
