I agree with him that if you keep your eyes open, you'll see that things are slowing down in your age group around that age.

I remember increasingly noticing the people who look like they're 45-50 pretending they're 20-25, hanging out in our favourite bars and restaurants. As you get closer in age to them they stand out more to you. At least they did to me.
Exactly, I don't have less friends than 5 years ago, I just have less time to spend with new friends so I certainly don't have more. I know a ton more people, but knowing all these tenants and professional contacts is not the same as spending time developing new life long friendships.
