A decade ago, the average American spent about six and a half hours a week with friends.

A few years later, the number had declined to four hours.

By 2021, in the middle of the pandemic, it was less than three hours a week.

Time spent socializing with friends is good for the mind and body.

Author Christie Tate talks about her friendship journey in her new book, “B.F.F.: A Memoir of Friendship Lost and Found.”
