If you are over 30, you may not even have heard of the term “girl crush.” It refers to a non-sexual attraction to another woman, someone with whom you would like to be friends. Have you ever met someone who seems just like the kind of person with whom you would want for a friend? How do you go about making a friendship with that person?

In a Cosmopolitan article called, How to Lock Down a Girl Crush, journalist Molly Triffin writes:

You’ve mastered the coy smile, the eye contact, the flirty texting.

But sometimes it’s new friends you’re in the market for…and that can be way trickier than meeting dudes…

Triffin interviewed The Friendship Doctor and author Rachel Bertsche seeking advice on how to connect with a new girlfriend. She writes:

“Don’t fall into the trap of thinking that everyone already has plenty of friends,” says Irene S. Levine, PhD, professor of psychology at the NYU School of Medicine and author of Best Friends Forever: Surviving a Breakup With Your Best Friend.

“Friendships come and go, and more of us than you can imagine are interested in getting to know new people.”
