That’s the age at which researchers from Oxford and Aalto universities found that the friend groups we’ve spent a lifetime building up begin to shrink, mostly thanks to focus shifting toward romantic partners, families, careers. As a new set of priorities emerges and we age into ourselves, we begin to slough off friends who aren’t deemed “inner circle” material.

There’s a lot more insights here that we just couldn’t get to. But, if you want to learn the rest of it, just click on this link to the Philadelphia Magazine for the full article.
