    This. I have more in common with people my own age (kids rougly same age, same interests) hence formed closer friendships.

    I have friends 10-20 years older than me but we arent as close as friends my own age.

    I get along well with people of all different ages due to my work (we have an age range of 20-70), but wouldn't call them close or substantial friendships.

    I also think that when you're in your 20's a 10 year age gap can be a much larger age difference (mainly due to life experiences) as opposed to a 10 year age gap in your 40's or 50's.
    Thank you for explaining. ..

    Age doesn't come into it when making new friends. I have friends of all ages, mostly they are the same age or older though.

    Age doesn't matter to me, though I find it's easier to click with someone who is close in age because we grew up in the same era (lots of relatable experiences).

    Out of my 3 closest girlfriends, two were born the same year as me, the other is two years younger.

    This is exactly me too. Even at work I notice I form the closest friendships with females near (+/- 5yrs) my age. We just have more in common and are at the same stage with kids etc.

    I tend to get along best with older people. My best best friend in the whole world is 13 years older. My second best friend (best male friend is 12 years older).

    Age doesn't matter to me and I have always not been in sync with people my own age. Lol
