Women’s Friendship Day 9/20/09: Five Things You Can Do

Published: September 16, 2009 | Last Updated: May 14, 2020 By | 1 Reply Continue Reading

1) Call, email, or get together with one or more of your best friends. Show and tell your friend how much you care. Don’t wait until Sunday because by then, you may forget. Last night I attended a memorial service for a very dear friend (once my elementary school teacher!) whom I had known for most of my lifetime and I only wished that we had had one more hour to chat.


2) If you are a blogger, write a post about Friendship Day. (I’ll be happy to help with a quote.) On this special day (which coincides with the pub date of my new book), write your own or repost one of my posts from www.TheFriendshipBlog.com (with attribution, of course).

Email me ([email protected]) the URL of your post by Sunday midnight and my three favorites will receive 2 free copies of Best Friends Forever: Surviving a Breakup with Your Best Friend (one for you and one for a best friend).


3) If you aren’t a blogger but have a Facebook or LinkedIn page, please use your status box to remind your friends about Women’s Friendship Day and cut and paste this note: "My friend, Irene S. Levine, has written a must-read book about female friendships. See: http://www.TheFriendshipBlog.com/book. Check it out."


4) If you Twitter, cut and paste this tweet: 9/20 is Women’s Friendship Day. "Check out my friend Irene’s new book on Amazon http://bit.ly/uZYj3 #BFF"


5) If you are reading this note, I hope that you are more than a virtual friend to me! If so, please email AT LEAST 5 of your best friends about my book, Best Friends Forever: Surviving a Breakup with Your Best Friend (Overlook Press). All of us have suffered the pain, at least once, of losing a best friendship that we thought would be forever. After spending two years thinking about female friendships and surveying more than 1500 women from all walks of life, I’ve learned that falling in and out love with best friends is universal.


Like me, haven’t you always wondered about these complex but vital relationships that are so essential to a woman’s physical and emotional well-being? What makes some friendships stick and others fall apart? How can you make myself a keeper? How do you move on if you’ve been dumped?


Just forward this note: "Sunday is National Women’s Friendship Day. My friend, Irene S. Levine, has written a must-read book about female friendships, Best Friends Forever: Surviving a Breakup with Your Best Friend. See: http://www.TheFriendshipBlog.com/book"


As you know, it’s hard for a small author to get the word out these days without the help of friends—so I hope if you’ll help. This is a one-time request, either because you have chosen to be my Facebook friend, LinkedIn friend, Twitter follower, or blog reader.

May you always be able to celebrate the joy of having close female friends who make a difference in your life!

Warm regards,

    This triggers volumes of thoughts and memories on a very special topic. As one of the most special relationships we can have, the complexity of the girlfriends’ exchange is wide open for great materail! Good Luck with the book – I’m sure it is a Universal theme.
