Interested in advertising on The Friendship Blog? 

Launched in 2007, is the only destination on the blogosphere where women (and some men) can obtain free, individualized advice and authoritative information to master the often-tricky etiquette of female friendships.

In response to reader questions by email and online, The Friendship Doctor dispenses a unique blend of insight, experience, and wisdom in simple, straightforward language—and distills new research findings, tracks trends, and gleans insights about friendship from popular culture.

The blog was redesigned in November 2012, to better organize it rich archival information and make it more easily searchable by users.


Dr. Levine, widely known as The Friendship Doctor, is a psychologist, author, and professor of psychiatry at the New York University School of Medicine. She is the author of Best Friends Forever: Surviving a Breakup with Your Best Friend, and is a regular contributor to the relationship and lifestyle pages of The Huffington Post and Psychology Today. She is the go-to person when print or electronic media seek out sage advice and information on the topic of female friendships.
