Friendships at 19-25 years old
As you get older, your friendships may change.
Some of your friends might be in long-term relationships, living with their partners, getting married or starting a family.
They might move to a different town, city or country for work.
Your friends might need a different kind of support than they have from you in the past and it may be more difficult to arrange time to spend together.
Keeping in touch is important even if you can't see each other face to face, you can use social networking or text or phone them to let them know you are still there for them as a friend.
Although they might have other things going on in their lives, they still need their friends so make yourself available to them. Your friends may ask your advice as they go through big changes in their lives, like moving in with their partner or having a baby.
It can be hard to juggle a full-time job, a relationship and family and seeing your friends so you could try arranging specific dates to see your friends such as a regular night-out, doing something that you both enjoy together or visiting each other.
