25 Things You’ll Learn About Friendships By 25

Friends play a significant roles in our lives as they are just as important as family.

They keep us connected, giving us a sense of community and providing us with a place to be loved and feel cared for.

By the time you reach 25, your friendships will undergo a series of changes because, like anything in life, relationships are constantly evolving.


Here are 25 things you’ll learn about friendships by 25:

There are two types of friendships: awesome ones and toxic ones.

Not everyone is meant to be your friend, and you can’t be a friend to everyone

Awesome friendships bring life, joy and a sense of family

Toxic friendships bring destruction, hurt and buck-loads of anger

Friendships are relationships that you choose to be in

After a while, your friends become as close as family

Friends are people you can do life with

Some friendships are seasonal, while other are meant to be for a lifetime

True friends know each other well

Friendships are constantly evolving as people evolve

You won’t see you friends as often as you used to mainly because of work, and sometimes because of relationship commitments

Life changes, and people get married, have kids and work takes them all over the world. Keeping the friendship alive in the midst of these changes is a two-way commitment that requires genuine love

Your friendship circles will be quite small compared to the thousands of friends you had back in your college years

You’ll drift apart from some people that you were once close with, not because of animosity, but because you two have outgrown each other

You’ll experience a bout of jealousy when your bestie befriends someone else and their friendship blooms into what the two of you had

At first, you’ll be sad about losing friends, but you’ll start to accept it and appreciate the friends that are with you

A good thing that happens that in the midst of losing friends, a new friendship will bloom with someone that you were acquaintances after the two of you realize that you have lots in common and enjoy each other’s company

Nights out on the town are replaced by coffee dates, holidays and visiting places of interest together

Like any relationship, communication is the key to keeping friendships alive and healthy

A good friend will always tell you the truth even if you get angry or hurt

And they will celebrate your successes with you

You’ll realize how difficult it is to make new friends at 25

It’s probably because everyone is happy with who they have in their lives that they’re not looking to extend their friendship circles

You’ll realize that breaking up with friends is just as traumatic as breaking up with a romantic partner

You’ll appreciate the friends that you do have a lot more as you become aware of their love for you.

  1. This is so true, it’s amazing how the friends you grow up with who you think will be with you for life can change. But the nice thing is how the people who really matter will always be by your side through thick or thin!

  2. I’m 22, and I don’t have many real friends. Mostly people to hang out with. I’ve been hurt many times till now from many “fake” friends, and I’m afraid to trust new ones. I really hope, one day I will meet some true ones!

  3. This is so true. I had no friends for a while. I got rid of the toxic ones, but that didn’t leave anyone lol. I recently made more friends but making friends as an adult is so hard.
