The Pandemic Has Erased Entire Categories of Friendship

quote [ “Friend is a very promiscuous word,” William Rawlins, a communications professor at Ohio University who studies friendship, told me. “Do we have a word for this array of friends that aren’t our close friends? I’m not sure we do, and I’m not sure we should.” ]

If you don't feel comfortable here you could still try the web's top hangout for lonely folk. To me, weak web ties will always be remembered as random chat encounters.

So now I've got an excuse for not having any friends? This is just getting better and better!

You don't need an excuse.

Not needing excuses is another advantage of having no friends.
