Paging Dr. NerdLove

Jun 14, 2018

Men on the whole, and white, heterosexual men in particular, tend to have fewer friends than women and the friendships they do have tend to be shallower and less fulfilling. It’s really not uncommon for guys to look up and realize just how few friends they have outside of family members and romantic relationships. And by then… it feels like it’s too late. After all, it's easy to make friends when you're in college. But how do you go about making friends when you're a grown man?

Show Highlights:

  • How men train themselves out of having close friends
  • Why male friendships tend to be shallower than female friendships
  • Why it's harder to make friends after college
  • The Friendship Formula: what it takes to make close friends
  • How to turn acquaintances into lifelong friendships

...and so much more
