Freund*innenschaftsrituale – „How Postcards Kept a Friendship Alive“

Auf der Website „Wanderlust“ hab ich vor einiger Zeit einen sehr schönen Beitrag von Laci Mosier entdeckt, bei dem es sich eigentlich um ein Interview mit ihr und ihrer Freundin Zuzu zu einem Ritual in ihrer Freundinnenschaft handelt, mit dem sie 2012 begannen: Postcard Friday! 🙂

via Melanie Bittner – Danke!

New, super-mainstream film „How To Be Single“ is about friendship

Read the article Why Can’t Hollywood Let Women End Up Single? about the new, super-mainstream film How To Be Single by Jess Commons

„…Rebel and Dakota’s characters end up happily single and in love with each others’ friendship which, when it comes to female-led comedies isn’t all that usual…The film is about loss, just as much as it is about love. It’s about friendship, fun and realizing what’s most meaningful in life (hint: it’s not swiping right). But more importantly, it’s about learning to „let go“ of the naïve preconceptions of relationships, single life, and love…“

„The Valentine’s Friendship Issue“ !!!

In Lena Dunhams Newsletter „Lennyletter“ vom 9.2. 2016, No. 20, geht es pünktlich zum Valentinstag um Freundinnenschaften – YEAH!

„…Friendships between women are as complex and ephemeral and necessary as any romance, and when you find a really good one you hold on for dear life. Therefore, we’re not letting go of any of you.

We hope you enjoy the honesty, vulnerability, and rage of the friendship issue. Whether it’s Kira Garcia finally learning to let go of a toxic relationship, or Durga Chew-Bose realizing the role race plays in her idol worship of other women, or Jenni and Lena trying to answer a rather sticky reader question, this issue is a celebration of both the beauty and the mess of friendship.“
