Making Friends as an Adult: Tackling Loneliness and Connecting with Neighbours

Have you ever noticed how making friends as an adult can be challenging?

A recent survey showed that 45% of people find it hard to make new friends, so you're not alone.

As our lives take different paths and our priorities shift, we may find ourselves in relationships and parenting, then we suddenly wake up one day and realise we haven't got any friends!

The struggle to combat loneliness while navigating adulthood is a common experience. However, one solution that often goes overlooked is getting to know our neighbours. In this blog post, we will explore the importance of connecting with neighbours and how an app like HiKinjo can help foster these connections within the UK - ready to make some friends? Let's dive in!

The Challenges of Making Friends in Adulthood:

As adults, our lives become increasingly busy and our interests diverge. Friends may move away, start families, or pursue different career paths. This natural progression can leave us feeling isolated and longing for meaningful connections. Building new friendships requires effort and stepping outside of our comfort zones.

Additionally, the age if technology has gifted us the opportunity to connect with each other, but more often than not, leaves a lot of us feeling isolated from the real world.

Well, Hikinjo believe we have the solution; a fantastic social app that marries the sharing economy with socialising. (*More about that later...)

The Power of Getting to Know Your Neighbours:

In our quest to combat loneliness, we often overlook the potential friendships that can be formed with our neighbours. Living in close proximity to others provides a unique opportunity for socialising and building a support network. By taking the initiative to get to know our neighbours, we can uncover shared interests, hobbies, and experiences.
