How to Know If You’re a Crap Social-Distancing Friend (Or Just a Selfish Prick)

Relationships are tough to maintain. This is true even when we’re not in the middle of a global pandemic that is killing lots of us. Relationships, even of the friendship sort, are hard to start and even harder to develop. This is especially true if you’re in your 30s. It is even more especially true in the midst of the aforementioned global pandemic when we’re all supposed to be social distancing.

Look, we’re all doing the best we can (except Trump. He’s doing the worst). We’re all trying to maintain our sanity while also maintaining our relationships with friends, family, and after-2 a.m.-booty-calls. Friendship in the time of corona is a confusing maze to navigate, and we’re all offering a little grace to each other in these trying times. Still, though, some people are better at being socially-distant friends than others. And some are just terrible at it. Here’s how to know if you’re one of those people.
