I’ve been at my company (small tech strategy firm) for over a year and still haven’t made a work friend. I’m a guy in my 20s and pretty outgoing but most of my coworkers are older and married. I haven’t found anyone at the company that I’d want to hang out with. I’m jealous of my friends at big consulting firms who are all friends outside of work and go out together on weekends etc (before COVID), even though they don’t get paid as much as me. Any advice besides “make friends outside of work?”
