Since narrowing my focus to finding extraordinary friendship in a sometimes too-ordinary world, I’ve been on the hunt for great websites I can find affinity with.

Turns out…friendship sites and even websites about friendship are hard to find.

(There are a zillion dating websites though.)

But after spending several months googling everything under the sun…

“blogs for friends,” “friendship blog,” and “websites about friendship”…

I’ve found ten snazzy, friend-loving sites to get inspired by.

Top Blogs For Friends: 10 Must Read Friendship Sites

The blogs that follow aren’t all straight up friendship sites. They weave through related topics like community, relationship-building and putting people first.

Some of the authors toss out opinions I don’t agree with (but who do we really agree with on everything?) and some of them bravely slosh around in topics I would be banished to Iceland before blogging about, but all of them have something smart, meaningful or savvy to say about how relationships work.

Greetings from Carolina! I’m bored to death at work so I decided to check out your website on my iphone during lunch break.
I enjoy the knowledge you present here and can’t wait to
take a look when I get home. I’m amazed at how fast
your blog loaded on my phone .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G
.. Anyways, excellent site!

I don’t know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everybody else
experiencing problems with your website. It appears as if
some of the written text on your content are running off the screen.
Can somebody else please comment and let me know if
this is happening to them as well? This may be a issue with my browser
because I’ve had this happen before. Kudos

How many times you pause or think before wishing your loved ones? If your answer is once or twice then you are not in the category of most of us. Otherwise you are not perfect with words and it’s not something bad really.

When reading the small tid-bit introduction about how difficult it is to find sites or blogs dedicated to friendships or relationships, I definitely agree there and find it comically amusing that there are more ‘dating’ sites than actual sites about friendships. I guess friendship is last on the mind or dating is more prevalent. I do love the fact you took the time to scout out some of these blogs, some of which are the ones I found for my own research and they all seem to give varying opinions and point of views about friendships. I’m more on the friendship scope than just relationships in general but it’s definitely a good place to come and find more as opposed to the endless scrolling through a search engine. So thank you!
