friendship recession

(名詞/可數) 友誼衰退期 - 朋友非常少或沒有朋友的時期。

American men appear to be stuck in a "friendship recession" — a trend that predates the Covid-19 pandemic but that seems to have accelerated over the past several years as loneliness levels have crept up worldwide. In a 2021 survey of more than 2,000 adults in the United States, less than half of the men said they were truly satisfied with how many friends they had, while 15 percent said they had no close friends at all.
