“The three easiest stages in life to make friends are high school, college and motherhood because the common interests are so evident,” says Jennifer Freed, PhD, a marriage and family counselor in Santa Barbara, CA, who’s facilitated friendship groups for decades. At other times, there may not be an overt reason to connect.
