About The Friendship Forums: A Place for You


A number of visitors to The Friendship Blog have asked me to create a place for them to meet and interact with other readers. Although I try to respond to as many questions as I can on the blog, I’m unable to answer them all.


Because I’ve been so impressed with how supportive and caring this community has been to each other, and how much wisdom and experience you have to share—I’ve created The Friendship Forums, as a place for women to get and give advice about a range of topics about friendship. After all, who knows more about our friendships than you do!


You’ll see there are four themes to start and more may be added based on your interests. I may occasionally move threads to a different theme if it seems to be a better fit.


Of course, I’ll continue to respond to individual questions you email to The Friendship Doctor on the blog but you can also post here to get opinions from other women.


Thanks for being so loyal to me, this blog and each other.

Warmest wishes,

    Dr. Irene,

    I have read through the guidelines, etc., but I can not find the link to register and/or log in to the forums. The closest thing I can find says, “Join Us!”, but it is not an enabled link.

    Can you send me a link?

    Susan Mann
