Want good friends who you can trust and rely on?👯‍♂️ Why not deepen the existing connections in your life? A psychologist shares 4 research-backed ways to strengthen your friendships:

When psychologist and friendship expert Marisa Franco went through a rough breakup in 2015, she felt like she had no more love in her life. So Franco leaned on her friends for support. They did yoga, cooked and read together. As she and her friends grew closer, she realized they were a deep well of love, community and healing. And she began to understand the importance of non-romantic, non-family relationships.

And the stronger our relationships are, the more likely we are to thrive, she adds. So how do we intensify the existing friendships in our lives? Franco offers four tips, based on her research.We often think of affection as the sort of love we show in romantic relationships. But affection is more than holding hands and kissing. It's about communicating love and appreciation.

Franco suggests a personal approach."Think about what your skills and talents are and find a way to turn that into a generous act," she says. For example, when she found out that her friends wanted to learn more about how to set up investment accounts, she used her research and analysis skills as a psychologist to put together a presentation on the topic for them.You can share acts of generosity like this with your friends, too.

Rejoicing in the successes of those around you is the highest level of emotional intelligence.

Hub has an ex-co-worker 'friend' who seems to only use him for big favors and niceties. Wish hub would ghost him.

What happens when friends absolutely do not reciprocate?

Psychology is pseudo-science.

Leftist culture has gotten so toxic that they need explainers on how to be a friend. This is NPR.

Some day.

Hey NPR, stop this silliness and foolish tweet, after your fake journalists & fake news and supporting communist and socialist agenda libs and DNC are doing; you want to fix the Damages all of you have done. Listen to this: Ridiculous! Disgraceful! All of you are. Defund NPR now

Wow. Leftist culture has gotten so toxic that they need explainers on how to be a friend. This is NPR.

Report this. Stop protecting the Democratic party and Joe Biden.

How did I know people would have a problem with this? Oh social media, you never disappoint.

Step 1: turn off NPR. Step 2: apologize to your friends who have been begging you to do step 1 for years. Step 3: be mad at the regime for coopting media and big corporations. Step 4: fight.

Engineering friendships seems fake and unhealthy. If being supportive of your friends doesn't come naturally, then maybe they aren't your friends.

If you need science in your relationships, you have big problems.

npr is the last place I want to explain to me how to win friends & influence people. Stick to news. Stay off the soapbox.

'Friendship expert' you cannot make this sh|t up 🤣

I know this is heresy, but could you ever promote a scientist who is not a Liberal Democrat? Maybe even just one who is Independent. I guess if you don't want your job to be in jeopardy, you have no choice.

Why don't we disperse with your scientific study and just spend quality time with friends. That does not take a scientific study. You don't make a move unless you read a scientific study by a scientists who gets paid to promote Liberal agendas.

It took a study to determine this? How sad.

Excellent!

Good god, if I go any deeper into the connections I already have I’ll drown.

Trash

Women bond by supporting each other with praise. Men bond by challenging each other to do dangerous stunts.

Good luck.
