One of the articles I wrote for this blog that really seemed to resonate with readers was “What’s really difficult about turning 30: It’s harder to make friends.” The topic of making friends is one that I seem to cycle back to on a semi-regular basis, often because readers ask me to talk about it. (Some of my previous posts are here, here, here, here, and here.)
Someone who has been thinking, writing, and talking about friendship for quite some time is Irene Levine, sometimes known as The Friendship Doctor. Recently, Dr. Levine shared with Marlo Thomas her “12 tips for making new friends at any age.” You can click on the link to read all of them. Here, I want to share a few of my favorites.
