Making & Keeping Good Friends at Any Age
MAKING AND KEEPING GOOD FRIENDS AT ANY AGE
Friendships are at the heart of our happiness, yet finding and keeping friends as we get older can be more difficult than it was when we were younger. The source of much fulfillment, friendships can also bring drama and stress. How do you make new friends when you’ve moved to a new community? Can you retain the same couples friendships now that you are widowed or divorced? Why do some friendships lapse—and can they be renewed? Dr. Andrea Bonior’s book, The Friendship Fix: The Complete Guide to Choosing, Losing, and Keeping up with Your Friends, has answers and is jam-packed with practical ways to improve your life by improving your circle.
