F.R.I.E.N.D.S Gave Me Unrealistic Expectations Of Adult Life

So no one told you life was gonna be this way.

I am starting to feel pretty lonely. I've always been a homebody, when I am very rarely out, I desperately want to make my excuses to get back home. But then when I'm home I want to be around people again.

This isn't always the case. I love being by myself, doing things for me, and not having to deal with other people, but sometimes, I wish I had my support network with me. In my post about the life lessons my friends taught me, it made me realise how much I value, cherish and love my friends. But living miles away from them is pretty tough.

And that's where Friends comes into all of this. Watching it as a 13/14 year old who definitely didn't understand a lot of the jokes, I couldn't wait for adult life. Living out your twenties with a group of friends who hung around in coffee shops, had dinner together, who went out on new dates every week and gossiping about it afterwards was what I always wanted.

I'm at a point now where I have come to terms with life definitely not being like that. And sometimes, actually most of the time, I'm okay with it, but sometimes I'm not.

Whilst I have great and lovely housemates, we rarely spend a weekend together. We value each other's alone time, and many of them have partners or work colleagues they see. I don't have those other people outside the house to hang out with. That's the problem with moving somewhere new, or even moving home after university.

And how do you even make friends as an adult anyway? I tried going into the staff room at work today in the hope to meet some new people. It was a total fail. There wasn't many people coming in or out, and if they did, we sat, in silence on our phones. I'm desperately looking for an activity to get involved with, hopefully things will get easier when it stops being so dark after work.

Yes, my life's a joke, I'm broke, and my love life's DOA, but I'm finding adult life to be a little lonely.



  1. I totally get you! I didn't watch too much friends but that I did watch definitely made me want to be in my twenties with that lifestyle. I'm lucky to have work collegagues who are quite social otherwise I would never leave the house to do something apart from see my boyfriend. Moving away from home with no one is so difficult at times - why can't FRIENDS be life?

  2. This series is not only a comedy, you can see really well-played everyday problems in it. I especially remember the series when the main characters had problems at work and they were looking for solutions in various games. Alas, I was not lucky in my life with friends, maybe partly my fault. But when I start having problems at work, stress, and the like, I find a solution using CBD. If someone also encountered this problem, I recommend to go to this service and try. There are no side effects, it's not hemp, it's just an extract!

  3. Adult life is full of worries and problems. This is especially true of single people. I like to chat on Dating sites, but Dating apps are more convenient in daily life. And I really like Beautiful Ukraine girl and this is my dream, I plan to marry a girl from this country. I am sure that many men all over the world dream of a Ukrainian girlfriend.
