Cosmopolitan Psychology on Friendship

Cosmopolitan Psychology’s October cover story is “Friendship: the most honest relationship.” Growing up, making friends is as natural as breathing. But as the years pass, housework, jobs, family and children gradually push friends out of our orbit. In the story, psychologists explain why this should be avoided at all costs.
