St. Martin's Griffin
Had enough of that bridezilla? Feeling alone in a new city? Dealing with the trauma of the worst breakup ever—with someone you never even made out with?
We’ve heard the path to fulfillment has much to do with relationships. But while it’s often thought that for young women, it's all about finding the right man, real women beg to differ: It's friendships that are at the heart of happiness. Unfortunately, they’re also at the heart of drama, stress, and sometimes not-so-great escapades after that fifth martini. And, technology, from texting to Facebook, has made all friendships more complicated than ever.
At last comes The Friendship Fix, jam-packed with practical ways to improve your life by improving your circle. From dealing with friends-with-benefits to coworkers from the dark side, from feeling alone to being desperate to defriend a few dozen people, Andrea Bonior, Ph.D. helps you make the most of your friendships, whether they be old, new, online, or in person.
"Written in a breezy and accessible style, The Friendship Fix is chock full of invaluable advice and wisdom. Dr. Andrea Bonior addresses all the complex friendship dilemmas women are likely to encounter in their 20s and 30s and lays out practical strategies to avoid or resolve them."--Irene S. Levine, Ph.D., author of Best Friends Forever: Surviving a Breakup with Your Best Friend
