So why is it so difficult to make new friends in London? Well, according to one Reddit user it's because 'EVERYBODY in London is an asshole'. Charming eh? With rising rents, shitty landlords, low wages and power-hungry bosses, it's no wonder that even the best of us can get a little 'assholely' from time to time. It's not all doom and gloom, though. Some of Reddit's finest have set up awesome meetups and groups across the capital to help us lonely folk make friends – aww, how sweet! From drug-fuelled night outs to finding your next best mate on Tinder, here are seven ways Londoners stay #bffs4eva, as told by the city's hilarious Redditors.
1. Go to a meetup
Vegan club anyone?
2. Try dating apps
When in need of a friend, always rely on:
3. Take up sports
Find your future bestie in a gym changing room...
4. Join a club
Sick of the wife? Here's your solution.
AA jogging club anyone?
5. Drink, party and rock 'n' roll

Chewing ya face off leaves a great impression. Apparently.
Screw the hobbies, it's all about those pills.
No words. But then again, London is the undisputed home of crazed debauchery. You could always try...
6. Form a support group

7. Or, just follow these bits of advice

But maybe not this fella...
And if you're not about making friends at all, just remember these words of 'wisdom'.
