Adult friend x free online lesbian dating sites
Different and delightful people for all purposes and all seasons.But after the social whirl of college is over, how do you go finding a friend as an adult?
We may even consider some friends family because we’ve shared so much with them—heartsick moments, secrets that no one else knows, the depths of our insecurities. It’s always hard to imagine something coming between a friendship but even strong relationships crack sometimes—and it’s devastating.
Carder Stout who specializes in relationships (and frequently contributes to goop—see here).
Here Stout talks about why it’s especially painful to break things off with your former ride-or-die—and how building resilience and shifting your perspective can potentially save a friendship.
Why does it hurt so acutely when we split with a close friend? Sadness and anger are likely two of the emotions brewing; there is also fear, guilt, confusion.
If we feel undermined or betrayed, we may ask ourselves if we knew the friend as well as we thought, or if we misjudged her character.
