In case this question gets merged, I'll quote this part of the question details before I proceed:
I'm 23. [...] I hate spending money. My interests include cycling, football and seeing friends.
You're off to a good start if you've identified this much at age 23. And you're in luck: enjoying life does not require spending nearly as much money as a lot of people spend. There's no cost to watch a beautiful sunset, or to spend time with friends.
You can, if you choose, make a sort of game out of living frugally, make the act of living frugally a pleasure in itself.
You mention that you love cycling. So do I. Last year I (finally) treated myself to a nice, new bike, having outgrown and worn out my 15-year-old one. The new bike will have about 3000 miles on it by the first anniversary of its purchase. At the moment, it means that my husband and I don't need a second car (or any of the costs associated with one), and that the car we do own is spared a lot of the short trips that are worst for the car and the environment. I delight in riding it, I get my exercise for free, and it takes me no more time to get from home to work than driving in rush hour traffic would.
Many things in life come with this sort of option, if you look for it, to spend money, to spend effort, or to do without. You'll choose all three of these options at some point.
For example, if you someday choose to own your home, you'll be in charge of maintenance and improvements on it. At the moment, I've chosen to pay somebody to replace a faulty, old furnace, because I would like a working one, and I believe I lack the time and skills to perform the job myself. On the other hand, a toilet replacement is no big deal, and it's something I have learned how to do. (Learning how to do such things, by the way, is useful and, if you choose to see it that way, also fun, or at least satisfying.) At the same time, I'm choosing to live with some older styles in things like light fixtures, because they're still working fine, and the look doesn't bother me.
Don't overdo it, either in the direction of spending or in the direction of thrift. Assuming you have some source of income, you can aim simply to live below your means. The exact numbers or percentages are up to you.
For one example of not overdoing the frugality, I would encourage you to invest in quality tools and equipment. Good cast iron pans and kitchen knives may be costly up front, but they can last a lifetime. During that lifetime, they can pay for themselves many times over. Practice cooking, and aim to get good enough to really enjoy both the process of cooking and your results. You'll eat well and even feed some of those friends whose company you enjoy, for a fraction of the cost of inferior processed and prepared foods.
One of the other answers mentions a bit about status, fashion, or keeping up with the Joneses. There is, as you probably already know, no need to follow such a herd. Instead, be confident in the fact that, while your neighbors work to pay off those fancy cars and the latest electronic gadgets, you're getting along fine with a good, old bicycle, while the money you save and invest grows. Cultivate real wealth and inner confidence, and you won't need to buy things to prove to others you can afford them.
Here is perhaps the most powerful way to enjoy a frugal life. If you succeed well enough at living below your means, you might not need to work as much or as long. Having a basic cash cushion takes the stress out of unexpected expenses and job loss. Having more gives you the option to walk out of a job you don't enjoy. (One financial blogger delights in calling this "f*** you money".) You could use your accumulated funds to support yourself while you travel, or to start an enterprise of your own. Or, if you save aggressively and plan well, you could consider retiring early. Various early retirement bloggers and the communities they gather can support you in this quest. My favorite of these is Mr. Money Mustache (worth reading, in my opinion, whether or not you intend to retire early).
A few more loose thoughts...
If you have a partner (girlfriend/boyfriend/husband/wife), talk to him/her early about money. If you're choosing a partner, of course money isn't the only thing, but some ability to live frugally will go a long way toward making the two of you compatible.
Also, consider carefully whether your dislike of spending money comes from, or comes with, risk aversion, and if so, whether that risk aversion is at a healthy, manageable level. It's fine, good even, if your aversion to spending money leads you to find better things to do in your free time than shop, if it prompts you to comparison shop for a larger purchase, or if it keeps you from impulsively buying things you don't need. If it leads you to take forever to get things you are confident you will use and enjoy, or if you worry and overthink small, routine purchases, you may have passed the point of balance.
I believe luxury is something you can often create for yourself, if you try. You can learn to make most of your favorite foods at home. You can clean your own vehicle or dwelling. You can build or update your own home and garden. Again, all these things come with satisfaction in the doing, as well as enjoyment of the result. (This is probably a topic for another answer or blog post.)
I'll end with this: there's a difference between being frugal and being cheap.
