Does one stop making good friends as we get older? I’m 28, and the “newest” friends I made was at the age of 24 in grad school. Tips on how to meet new people?

Are you single? Dating someone with a group of friends is one way!

No I’m married

I joined meetup when I moved to a new city. I’m a cyclist so I started cycling with a group. Then some of them were my age and skied and suddenly had a new group of friends. For reference I’m 27

OP - I feel exactly the same way. I’m turning 28 soon and haven’t made many friends since grad school. I do feel lucky to be able to call some of my Deloitte colleagues my friends.

Yesterday was rakhi and my younger sister asked me to tie her one as well as we both would be there for each other.
She even gave me a gift when I tied her the rakhi.
Now I don't have any problem with this but just wanted to get an idea from a larger group as to what are your opinions about this?

How many people’s jobs would you absorb before requesting your role be re-evaluated/leveled/comp adjusted? I am already doing one person’s job when we decided not to backfill them when they left and just got nominated to take over someone else’s responsibilities while they are out on a multi-month leave. I could handle this if I was an individual contributor but I also have a significant team I’m managing and the additional responsibilities are coming at their expense which is unfair to them.
