New research from Carnival Cruise Line has found that nearly a third of Gen X Australians are going through a friendship drought. So let’s just add that to the never-ending list of things we need to deal with…

While over 30% of people have friends that live close by, they feel that they never have time to see them due to family and work.

What’s more, over half (57%) of Gen X Australians said they would like to spend more quality time with close friends, just like they did back in the day.

Do you know what we should do about it? We should totally book a holiday!
