The Friendship Fix
By: Andrea Bonior Ph.D.(Author)
"The Friendship Fix" is the first book to delve into all of these aspects of friendship, including: how your personality shapes what friends you fall for, and why, as in romantic relationships, it's easy to get into patterns of infatuation with 'Ms. Wrong'; how modern technology and social networking have revolutionized our friendship-making, friendship-keeping, and friendship-breaking; how to avoid the pitfalls of these sites and instead use them to become the healthiest you; and, how friendships can make or break your emotional, physical, and financial health. The increasing role of co-ed friendships, work friendships, friends-as-family, and how to handle when 'Just friends' becomes 'It's complicated'.
"In her debut, Bonior (Psychology/Georgetown Univ.) dispenses smart advice, flush with wit and sarcasm, aimed at women grappling with their relationships. Not only does she embrace and trumpet the importance of friendship, the author also offers relevant ideas and non-silly steps to put yourself out there and start creating new friendships.... An overdone topic taken from clinical to fabulous."--"Kirkus Reviews" "If you're one of those people who let your friendships fizzle after your twenties--or if you're still clinging for dear life to friendships that no longer serve you--I prescribe "The Friendship Fix" as the cure for what's keeping you from your true BFF's. Many of us build our families from the friendships we create as young women, but how can we create sustainable, healthy, authentic, lasting connections with the girls who have got our back? Trust Andrea Bonior to help you choose your friends mindfully, prioritize relationships that bring out the best in you, and build the foundation for a lifetime of rich, fulfilling sisterhood. If I'd had just such a guide when I was younger, it might not have taken me until my forties to learn how to be and attract the kind of friend I've always desired."--Lissa Rankin, MD, author of "What's Up Down There? Questions You'd Only Ask Your Gynecologist If She Was Your Best Friend" and founder of OwningPink.com "Andrea Bonior has written the definitive guide to satisfying friendships for 20 and 30-somethings. Her advice tunes right in to the newest friendship issues (online and off) in this complex world."--Florence Isaacs, author of "Toxic Friends/True Friends"
