Loneliness: One in eight people have no close friends
In addition, the study of more than 5,000 people found that 45 percent of British adults said they feel lonely sometimes and nearly 18 percent feel lonely all the time or often. Adding to the misery, 17 percent of participants said they never or rarely felt loved.
Those without close friends were 2.5 times more likely to report feeling depressed or hopeless “all the time” or “often” compared with those who have four or more close friends. Surprisingly, young people were the age group most likely to report feelings of loneliness, with 65 percent of those aged 16 to 24 reporting feeling lonely sometimes versus just 32 percent of those older than 65 saying the same. Social media could be responsible for some of this effect, with many young people spending too much time collecting casual “friends” on sites like Facebook and not enough time nurturing real-life connections.
