Good friendships help us through the trials of life and provide company and entertainment. However, many people need help either in forming new friendships or in enhancing existing ones. Shyness or other difficulties can interfere with our ability to form rewarding relationships. The good news is that the art of friendship can be learned, and loneliness does not have to be with us for ever.

This book looks at blocks that may prevent people from forming warm, close relationships, and suggests ways in which you really can turn strangers into friends. Subjects covered include:

  •  
  • personality and longterm loneliness
  • why we need close relationships
  • how friendships form and what may prevent them from doing so
  • improving listening skills and using body language effectively
  • how to protect yourself and establish good barriers
  • dealing with negative emotions such as anger, both in yourself and in others
  • seeking romantic relationships.
