Could A “Friends” Movie Be On The Way?

For years, I wanted to be friends with “Friends.” But the TV show was canceled in 2004, as the 30-something cast slid more toward the “something” end of the spectrum. NBC seemed to think audiences weren’t interested in watching Monica, Rachel, Phoebe and their significant others settle into family lives. But Matthew Perry is such…

An Israeli, An Iranian And A Palestinian Are Sitting In A Boat…

The title is actually not the beginning of a joke. As unlikely as it may sound, this was gist of my most of my weekend. A little bit of background is necessary. Three years ago an Israeli is sitting in his room in Jerusalem getting ready to attend college in the US. He receives a…

Why Do Good Friends Make Crappy Roommates?

Jimmy Fallon once joked about how choosing a friend as a roommate is never awesome: “It doesn’t work out. You will fight each other––they have to much dirt on you. They’ll crush you in an argument for no reason. Like you’ll just say ‘Hey man the dishes have been in the sink for like two…

Why Are Guy Friends So Trendy?

Girlfriends are getting a lot of flack these days. Despite the popularity of “Sex and the City,” “Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants,” and “Lipstick Jungle” (well, maybe that one wasn’t so popular), female friendship is under attack. In the past few years it has become trendy to poo-poo girlfriends and hang with a posse of…

There Comes A Time When Every Man Has To Grow Up

Yesterday, my friend George* told me about an argument he had with his best friend Elliott. Elliott recently uploaded photos of his killer abs to a social networking site, so he was contacted by several women trying to hookup with him. And the other night, he was eager to meet one of these women. The…

Five Ways To “Unfriend” A Friend

Recently, a reader asked “Dear Prudence” how to “unfriend” a friend:

How do you “unfriend” someone, not on Facebook, but in real life? This is a person who is also friendly with someone I know well, so it is not unlikely that we might all get together through our mutual friend. However, it might…

The Tyranny Of The Tardy

I have a friend—bless her heart—who is habitually late to everything! It all started when Lynn went to work for me as a freelance editor. She never showed up when she said she would, always arrived looking like the mad scientist with hair askew and papers flying out of her cramped notebooks, and as breathle…

Worst Roomates Ever

When I showed up for my freshman year of college, my roommate was a no-show. Since then, I have had one waking nightmare after another — the one who brushed her teeth so hard, she passed out in the bathroom and conked her head on the sink; the one who drank a case of beer…

My Friends Don’t Get My Relationship

A few weekends ago, my girlfriends and I decided to have a drink night. For most girl crews, drink night usually starts out with a few friendly cocktails and pointless compliments on each other’s outfits (the question, “oh my god where did you get that?” is a surefire sign that you need a few more…

Maybe We Could Be Soul Mates?

When I told a friend that I was in break-up recovery, she didn’t hand me the name of her therapist, she lent me her “Sex and the City” Collector’s Gift Set. I had caught reruns of the show on the few nights I watched television outside of “60 Minutes” and “Frontline,” and while I loved…

One of the things I love about being in a relationship is that my friend circle multiplies. But what happens to those newly formed friendships when the relationship ends?

Last night on Maxim Radio (Sirius 108), hosts Devore & Diana were talking about test dates and how meeting the friends and meeting the parents are the biggest examples of a person being tested in a new relationship.
