    Yay for friends!!!! Big hugs from here, and we are SO thrilled that we are your friends!!!

    I’ve lost some friends by moving around compared to my friends who have stayed in one place. A lot of people aren’t willing to make the effort once someone’s moved to another city while I still write postcards, put out the invitations for visits, etc. I guess that’s how you know who your real friends are – the ones willing to make the effort. Some have surprised me in great ways while others who I thought I could count on have disappointed me. You just have to really cherish what you’ve got.

    We cherish you guys for sure!

      Both Michael and I are fans of you two. 🙂

      Agreed, the moving thing is hard. Even just moving to another part of the city! My neighbor Star is a very dear friend. When we lived in the same apartment building we talked every day. Now we don’t as much, since I moved, but I don’t feel like our friendship has suffered so that’s good.

    My friends are VERY important to me and I feel really fortunate to have good circle, both male and female around me. Some friends come and go in life, but the core ones (there are 2) are people I’ve known for DECADES (I met one in grade 9, and the other through a mutual friend when I was in my teens). We’ve been through thick and thin together, can tell each other anything, piss each other off sometimes, but always come through and I know we’ll be in each other’s lives forever.

      That’s wonderful. Glad you have kept the really good friends!

    I need to read this book! I don’t have many friends. Since I moved to Glasgow I’ve been very lonely. I have my original BFF who I’ve known since I was 7 and Steph who I’ve been friends with since 2010 and who I went to Scotland with. I’ve only met one person here that I’ve become friends with, so I could use a book to help me out! Most of it is my fault though since I’m so bad at being social/meeting other people/etc. It isn’t as easy at 37 as it was at 7!

      It is definitely harder the older we get. I made friends pretty easily even just 6 or 7 years ago!

    My BFF I met 20 years ago when we were both 12. Technically we met briefly two years before that, though we didn’t know if much later. Some times we don’t see much of each other, but I know we’re always there for each other when it really matters. She’s pretty much my soul mate. 🙂

    As for meeting other people, I suck at it due to major anxiety. Most of my friends now are people I met through my bf, but honestly, some of them are amazing people that now I can’t imagine not knowing. 🙂 I do have a few other friends I met in places like school over the years, and there are a lot of online friends too some of which I really want to meet one day.

      Aw, soul mate, I totally understand!!

      I met some new people last night. I walked over to where the Fitbloggin conference was and got to meet a bunch of people. I was definitely anxious about it, but so so glad I sucked it up and just did it!

    It is SO hard to make friends as an adult! I have read similar advice – be willing to put yourself out there, try new things, join groups, etc. It’s really scary! Way outside of my comfort zone. I think it’s also something that I put on the back burner after getting into a serious relationship.

    Definitely gonna look for this book; thanks for the review, Lisa!

      It’s easier to try new things, put yourself out there, when you already have a friend to go with you!

      Let me know what you think of the book. 🙂
