When we first join primary school, it is perhaps our first foray into true friendship. We meet so many different people, from different backgrounds. We don’t hold any grudges or reservations, but rather make friends with everyone. From primary school through to high school, we may hold onto these friendships. Or we may part ways...Read More
Christmas always seems such a busy time of year. We are present-buying, gift-wrapping, food-ordering and house-decorating, whilst still making time to see friends and family. We make a conscious effort to ensure we see everyone – whether it’s to drop a card round or toast to the festive season. Christmas Day itself is often spent...Read More
From pre-school friendships to the close bonds we form at university or the work colleagues we soon come to view as good friends, it is the people in our lives who really make up the very essence of what it’s all about. We are not told of the importance of these friendships growing up. We...Read More
Who do you turn to when you have a problem or an issue you need advice with? Do you ponder it over yourself and shy away from troubling others with it? Do you talk it over with your other half, or reap the benefits of your parents’ wisdom to determine the best course of action?...Read More
During our school days, it seemed so much easier to make – and keep – friends. Perhaps it’s our simple outlook or lack of worries and jealously.

What would we do without them? Yesterday I was walking down Oxford Street after having lunch with a close friend that I don’t get to see as often as I would like. A girl, in a rush and carrying a number of paper bags filled with her latest purchases, stopped next to me at the...Read More
Relationships aren’t always easy. It’s not always smooth sailing, love songs and happily ever afters. It’s not always love at first sight and romantic adventures, late nights and date nights. In this world, initially getting together with someone is fairly simple; it can literally be a matter of swiping left or right. In a matter...Read More
With social media at our fingertips wherever we go, it can seem strange that our online friends don’t always equate to real life relationships. As people move apart for various reasons and lose touch, many of us can start to feel isolated by the fact that we don’t have any real friends to simply hang out with. Nobody ever...Read More
