Girlfriend Guru,thankful for friendsThe function of a friend is not to have a function. ~Detlef Cordes

There is something wonderful about meeting someone and knowing that you’ve just met a great friend. Fab new friend Keri is a great example (so glad we met you!).

Girlfriend guru RACHEL AWES tells us about meeting a new friend–and shares great tips for learning about a new girlfriend and creating deep and lasting friendships.

Last night I went out on a “date” with a new girlfriend! We had a glass of wine at a charming wine bar and then walked across the street to see “Les Miserables.” What a gift it is to have a new girlfriend appear!

We covered a lot of ground in a short amount of time. I share here some of the topics/questions, as it may be fun things to bring to the table of your own friendships:

  • What did you like to do when you were 10 years old?
  • What names did you go by when you were young? (in first grade, my new friend named herself Penny Penelope Jeanine Fish)Kindness found me, girlfriend guru
  • Who was in your family/where did you grow up/what’s your relationship like with your parents/sibling(s)?
  • What was dating like for you?
  • What job do you want now?
  • Who do you miss?
  • What does it feel like to be this age now?

We are supposed to get a bunch more snow here in the next couple days in Minnesota. Sometimes girlfriends are just the right sunshine medicine.

Sending out love to each of you and a sense of curiosity about how you might respond to some of these questions!
