Do your close friends tend to be older or younger than you?
All right, I’ve done the math. Looking at my Christmas list, excluding blood relations, the median age of my closest friends is 29.4 years of age. Which is approximately 6 years younger than me. So I’m gonna say that the correct answer to the question is that my close friends tend to be younger than me. I think that speaks to my own maturity level and the fact that I refuse to believe I’m actually in my 30’s.
