Real Friendship

The popular belief that a friendship shouldn’t make you uncomfortable and that you should cut someone off at the first sign of tension or disappointment has seeped into the collective consciousness

Relationship experts agree: That’s not real friendship.

  • Honing your ability to work through conflict in a long-term platonic relationship is no different than learning to do so in a committed romantic partnership.
  • Open, non-blaming conversations lead to deeper intimacy.
  • When the challenge arises, don't run from the chance to deepen your bond.
