Americans, typically, have about 16 friends.
Of these, 3 are lifelong pals.
5 are people who would be asked to hang out one-on-one.
8 are people whose company is enjoyed–
but who would not be asked to hang out one-on-one.
On average, we have about 50 acquaintances
and about 91 social media friends.

However, on average, Americans haven’t made a new friend in five years.
45% of adults struggle to make new friends.
42% claim that shyness or introversion is the reason for their difficulty.
33% feel that people already have formed their friendship groups.
33% feel that, like the dating scene, the friendship scene is too centered around bars.
29% say that commitments to family are a hindrance to making new ties.
