Falling out of friendship

Listen 48:22

Guests: Andrea Bonior, Deborah Tannen

Friendships end for many reasons —  a change of lifestyle, growing geographical distance, differing values, a misunderstanding or disagreement. But, whether it’s because of a natural shift in life or something more dramatic, the loss of a close friendship can be heartbreaking. Today on Radio Times, we talk about how to cope with ending friendships, and how to move on.  We’ll talk with ANDREA BONIOR, a psychologist, columnist and author of Friendship Fix and Georgetown linguistics professor DEBORAH TANNEN whose most recent book is You’re the Only One I Can Tell:  Inside the Language of Women’s Friendships.
