On this week’s episode of #TheFriendZone, we discuss a recent study claiming 24 year olds should still be considered teenagers by law, extending adolescence, due to the many factors contributing to their failure to launch into adulthood. According to the journal, teens are reaching major milestones a lot slower than teens of the past. We explore whether or not society should support such cultural shifts, by examining the factors and sharing stories of our challenges as teens with limited resources.

On this week's episode of #TheFriendZone, we discuss Psychologist Arthur Aron's "36 Question" exploration of intimacy between two strangers. According to his study, "mutual vulnerability fosters closeness" and leads to love, so he literally "forces" the issue. We dissect the questions, imagining them on a first date, and put this theory to the test.
