Is that so hard to find as an adult.

to me that's a lot. but i don't think its impossible. 

One my close friends had a group like that. I met her through work and those friends she grew up with.

I have a group of friends from college, three of us. We are still tight to this day. When I moved to Atlanta I meet one of my neighbors and then started hanging with her and her group of friends. We have been tight for 7years.
 
Unfortunatley my college group and my ATL group don't get along. Unhappy I mean DO NOT get along!

I didn't know that there was a term for this.
 
Yes, it is possible to have this as an adult.
I have a good group of close long term friends ( around 6/7 of us). Literally, we all refer to each other as sisters, and they are all supportive, respectful, fun, trustworthy, honest, and educated. Every single one of these women are individuals whom I trust (they/we don't gossip/lie/talk about others behind their backs) and if one of us needs something/has an emergency, many(if not all) would drop everything in a second, to offer their help/support if need be. 

So, speaking from personal experience, it is not impossible, but it just takes time and effort. One of the best decisions I've ever made was to be cognizant of who I hang with and choose my friends wisely, deciding to cut off any negative and toxic friendship(s) and holding onto/investing in those friendships I found worthwhile. 

imo, nothing can replace that bond of a strong women friendship.

Man, it's a beautiful romantic notion but this shyt really tripped me up in my late 20's. I so wanted to keep it that way that I ended up tolerating for too long people who weren't meant to remain in my life. I can't say my friends are particularly close to each other because I tend to be the common link. I have different people in my life who fulfill different needs.

Finding a group of friends is much harder as an adult, though finding individual friends isn't quite as difficult.

 
My sister invited her new friend from church to our girlfriend's girls' night, and the friend was practically shunned by our other friends. We tried to involve her, but she felt the tension and decided to leave. It's a shame because she is so sweet. I took her out to dinner over the weekend and we had a ball.
 
But it seems that the older we get, the more we settle into a habitus and become more closed to new relationships.
 
It is possible though, especially in very transient areas. Certain settings, like Bible study or something, would make it easier.
