TODAY has a mascot! Vote now to decide what its name will be. The formula to make a friend seems simple: Meet lots of people, find someone you like and spend time together to foster a bond.
But how much time? With many adults awash in Facebook friends, but reporting few real-life confidantes, the process seems elusive. So Jeffrey Hall, an associate professor of communication studies at The University of Kansas, set out to find the answers to those questions in a recent study. For his study, published in the Journal of Social and Personal Relationships, Hall first examined survey responses from adults who had recently moved and were getting to know a new acquaintance.
They described how much time they spent with that person, how they typically spent those hours together and how close they felt over time. Then, Hall asked university freshmen who had just moved to their college town similar questions about two new acquaintances and followed up over several weeks to see whether they became friends. So how long did it take to make a friend? The precise s below may not be exactly the same for all people, Hall noted.

And while people have an average of Facebook friends, they can only rely on four in a crisisa recent study done by an Oxford University psychologist showed. What are your hobbies?
Seek out people with the same interests in places where they gather. Invite a work friend to lunch or to hang out after hours, or go for a hike with a gym buddy — the shift to a new location offers a new opportunity to develop the relationship, Hall said. Just the mere invitation als your interest in the friendship.
