@SoFa_king_Cody I guess it depends on what you consider friends. I find it east to talk to people and become acquaintances, if you consider those friends then it is very easy to make friends. But real friends, true, raw, friendship takes time and trust. I don't think its hard, but I do think its rare.
When I was little my dad used to say "I don't consider someone my friend unless I know that I can be stranded in the middle of no where with a flat tire or no gas or something at 2:30 AM and call them without worrying if they will pick up and know that they will come to help me." That's something that always stuck with me.
To me friendship must have trust, loyalty, honesty, and love. Without those things, they're just another acquaintance
