The Friendship Thread Befriends Its Friends’ Friends

Welcome to the Friendship Thread! We have some great spaces at the Avocado to talk about relationships, sexuality, and other aspects of our personal lives, so here’s one centered around another important part of the human experience: friendships.

The goal of these posts is to talk about the role our friendships play in our lives, the challenges of negotiating friendships brought on by adulthood, technology, and the like, and anything else that comes to mind. Feel free to vent or ask for advice on issues you’re having with friends – just keep it respectful and be sure to follow site rules.

Optional discussion topic: People often say that making new friends through your existing ones is one of the best ways to go about meeting people.  How successful have you been getting to know friends of friends?  Have you gotten to the point where you can hang out without the mutual friend there?  Have there been any times when you just haven’t clicked with a friend of a friend?
