Create the antidote by writing your recipe for a healthy friendship.

  • What are the primary ingredients for friendship for you? Is it a shared outlook or background or sense of humor?
  • Just like a recipe, try to be specific about the amounts of each ingredient. How many times per month would you like to spend time with a close friend? How much communication would you like in between? If you have online friends, create an ideal recipe for that scenario as well.
  • Once you have completed your recipe or recipes, dare to share. Send to your friends to collect input and/or post online to your online community. If you’d rather not share with others, then post on a wall or bulletin board to encourage continued consideration.
