Why is there only one acceptable ending to the
Boy meets Girl story? Divorce rates sky-high. Relationships floundering.
Perhaps it's time we focused on our friendships with the opposite sex
instead, because friendship can be every bit as important as romance.
And, when sex doesn't get in the way, insecurities diminish and
communication becomes much easier. Men and women can come from the same
planet after all! Interviewing friends and siblings, Lisa Gee finds out
how they communicate, what they give each other that no one else can,
whether sex [for the friends] ever did get in the way. Why, she asks,
has every bond between men and women become so sexualized? How have
changes in family life and our desire for independence affected our
emotional make up? Addressing all these issues, she shows us how
friendships across the gender divide are more widespread and necessary
than ever before. Lively and insightful, "Friends" is guaranteed to make
you re-think your interactions with the opposite sex.
