Ever since the book came out, I've received feedback about how it's made women think about friendships throughout their lives, as well as who is in their lives now. The goal of this blog is to open up and create a dialogue about friendships: the good, the bad, and the ugly.
Each week I will post my thoughts, experiences, as well as various articles, topics or quotes that I feel are important when examining female friendships. Please feel free to leave comments; I look forward to hearing from you!

Friendship With Men vs. Women
I find this topic interesting because there is a difference when it comes to having male and female friends. I often hear women discuss how they can't stand the drama of some of their female friends, and so they spend more time with their male friends. But as we all know, males can have drama too!
I also believe that when females have been hurt by other females, they may be more inclined to seek out male friendships due to past painful experiences. There is a fear of entering into another friendship that may end badly. I can understand that mentality, however, we can't let our fears get in the way of potential positive friendships.
I think there are benefits to having both male and female friends, and having a healthy balance of both.
What do you think? Do you prefer one group over the other? If so, is it because of your friendship experiences?
