I’m successful.’ She said, ‘You don’t understand what ADD is.’” The psychiatrist advised Koretsky to read up on the subject, beginning with (Touchstone, 1995), by Edward M. Ratey, MD — the first book to thoroughly discuss adults living with ADD.

What was the one question that came up more than any other? Daynya kicked it off: "I feel like I don't have any friends. I don't have anyone to just 'go hang out with'....
My boyfriend and I hang out with other couples, but no girls I really click with.
I try to make friends with girls at yoga, but I feel like I'm hitting on them! Making friends as an adult, when you don't work with females, is the hardest thing ever.
I just want someone to get coffee and watch movies with."Many readers agreed that they were in the same boat.We all want female friends, but it can be hard to find them. ) So they'll probably be very happy that you asked. Here are a few tips....***Making friends as adults can be hard, since you may feel like everyone is too busy or people already have their sets of pals. Even if they're busy, almost everyone LOVES being invited to dinners, movies, parties, whatever. If there is a girl you like, even if you feel nervous, just ask her to hang out. A tip for Daynya: If you feel weird about "hitting on" your yoga classmates, instead of asking them for a movie or dinner, ask them if they want to try yoga with you at a different studio, or if they want to join you for a walk in a park to stretch your legs, or if they want to go shopping for yoga gear.

Things change as couples get to know each other better. Even if you feel sure of your decision, breaking up means having an awkward or difficult conversation.If you're thinking of breaking up with someone, you may have mixed feelings about it. Something in the middle works best: Think things through so you're clear with yourself on why you want to break up. But there are some general "do's and don'ts" you can keep in mind as you start thinking about having that break-up conversation. If someone asks you out but you're not really interested, you can follow the same guidelines for letting that person down gently. Now you need to find a good time to talk — and a way to have the conversation that's respectful, fair, clear, and kind. It's a chance for us to learn to care about another person and to experience being cared about. Ending a relationship — as hard as it is — builds our skills when it comes to being honest and kind during difficult conversations.
