    Wow This book was AMAZING As in I was looking forward to reading it and thought it would have some useful information and reflections for me But I didn't expect it to be so well written so richly detailed so thought provoking and informative and so helpful to me in my approach to friendshipsHIGHLY recommended Especially if you're tempted to think I just haven't found the right friends yet or Everyone around me already has all the friends they need And if you feel like you're not good enough for friends And if you've been hurt by friendships before and wonder if you can ever trust people again or whether there's really anyone good enough to be your friend And if you know you've got some decent friendships but wish you saw them often or that you could open up to each other a little or that your interactions could be positive and less drainingWhile I'm at it I'm just going to recommend this book to every Woman Ever Because we can all have deeper richer satisfying friendships And friendships are soooo good for us and so important not an optional extraNote This book is definitely written for women and with a bias towards friendships between women But I think a lot of what's here would be useful for other friendships too

    The first few chapters of this book seemed to rehash everything in Nelson's first book Friendships Don't Just Happen The Guide to Creating a Meaningful Circle of GirlFriends as well as her blog postsI did like the picture of a frientimacy triangle the base of a relationship is positivity and the arms of the triangle are consistency and vulnerability In a good relationship the levels of consistency and vulnerability should be fairly eual bringing balance I think this visual will help me in evaluating my friendships determining if they're healthy and if they're not it will help me to uickly pinpoint what I can do to make them healthierThe second half of the book was so boring and repetitive and it's why I took so long to finish this thingOverall I appreciate Nelson's passion for women and their friendships but she seems to think that feelings trump everything and has somewhat skewed views on spirituality She also never really addresses the fact that you can be an amazing friend and do everything right but not everyone around you is going to be a good friend back It's one thing to acknowledge that you're responsible only for your actions and it's another to overlook the fact that people can and will hurt you even when you try your hardest to rise above it

    I've read and enjoyed the author's other book Friendships Don't Just Happen which can at least be in part credited with my forming my local set of friends This book built very nicely on the foundation that book set up If the first book is about networking and starting friendships this book is about keeping deepening and expanding on your current network of friends There is surprisingly little overlap between the two books and both focus on something that we all think we all think is really important but don't really spend too much time thinking about how we do it or how to do it better Sometimes the book was a bit too warm hearted and task oriented for me a strange combo now that I write it out but at the same time those are the parts that can inspire and give concrete ideas If it's something you feel you want to work on in your own life then I think this book is well worth the read

    ⭐⭐ It was OK per GoodReads's scale it's not a bad rating but it's not great eitherI love her concept of intimate friendships being built on the three pillars of positivity consistency and vulnerability That is a useful tangible construct to establish a roadmap for any potential or existing friendship and to evaluate what gaps need to be addressed in existing friendships at every level of frientimacyThis only got an OK rating because while other parts of the book were interesting a lot of it felt repetitive there were many sections I'd be listening to I listened to the audiobook and wondering when she would move on to the next point as I can't simply flip ahead to see how much longer a section had left That left me feeling like there was a lot of fluff and this could have been shorterI recommend the chapters on the three pillars noted above and then just cherry pick which other chapters you'd find valuable for your personal situation


  5. Kelly Kelly says:

    Read Shasta Nelson's two books uickly after hearing a good podcast featuring her I recommend reading the first book Friendships Don't Just Happen for some good ideas and insights but not the second Frientimacy unless the intimacy gaps she writes about in her first book are something you want to dive deeper on


  6. Erin Erin says:

    Here is a summary of what the book is about With the constant connectivity of today's world it's never been easier to meet people and make new friends but it's never been harder to form meaningful friendshipsIn Frientimacy award winning speaker Shasta Nelson shows how anyone can form stronger meaningful friendships marked by a level of trust she calls frientimacy Shasta explores the ten most common complaints and conflicts facing female friendships today and lays out strategies for overcoming these pitfalls to create deeper supportive relationships that last for the long termIn Frientimacy she teaches readers to reject the impulse to pull away from friendships that aren't instantly and constantly gratifying With a warm engaging and inspiring voice she shows how friendships built on dedication and commitment can lead to enriched relationships stronger and meaningful ties and an overall increase in mental healthThe Intimacy Gap is than just a call for deeper connection between friends; it's a roadmap for moving from friendship to frientimacy and the meaningful and satisfying relationships that come with itI found this book to be very informativeIf you want to have a deeper connection with your friends you should read this book I would recommend itLooking forward to reading books by this authorHappy Reading Everyone

    As a dude I found this book really helpful in providing a vocabulary and visual framework for understanding and assessing the uality of friendships The strength of this book is in the emphasis that we need to be initiators not just passive receptors by starting first to look within ourselves to see what areas might be contributing to our lack of depth in relationships to grow where lacking and then to learn how to deal with the shortcomings of others in a positive way and in turn develop meaningful friendships through mutual growth I gave 4 stars because the books was a bit wordy and in certain parts used too many fluffy new agey terms which in my opinion unnecessarily masked the power of the simple but powerful and transformative message this book has to offer I wholeheartedly encourage the author to be unapologetic about her Christian world view and to embrace it with as much courage and grace as she displayed in writing this book


  8. Anna Ware Anna Ware says:

    This is really a book about so much than friendship It's a book about building resilience and confidence trusting people thinking positively being honest knowing yourself and valuing people above work and material possessions It opened my eyes to so much than just friendship


  9. OK OK says:

    This book is ENTIRELY for straight white middle class women Outside of that there were a few things that I enjoyed Thoughts forthcoming —— ThoughtsI found this book useful not so much for the book itself but because it gave me a resource through and against which I could reflect on friendship Especially how ueer friendships and ueer community building differ from—and surpass imho—friendships between straight white womenThemes loneliness intimacy gaps initiation the three pillars of friendship positivity consistency vulnerability uestions to ask friends to deepen connections renegotiating friendships after major life events conflict resolution letting go and healthy closure boundaries rejection owning your shit operating when we’re not at our best compassion when others aren’t either unreliable v reliable jealousy resenting v applauding envy shining self worth 35


  10. Ashley Ashley says:

    I heard this author interviewed on a podcast and was interested in reading of her research on healthy friendships This book surprised me I learned a lot and gained some helpful tools for understanding myself and people and relationships vs friendships I like her definition of friendship a relationship where two people BOTH feel seen safe and satisfied She says positivity meaning the benefits of the relationship to both must outweigh the negative costsdrains 51 in order to form the foundation of a real FRIENDship and then consistency and vulnerability should grow proportionally from that foundation She categorizes friends as casual common and confirmed The chapters on jealousy and envy are awesome She uoted the Peck article we read at the assessment center on stages of community I think she is well read and researched and has presented helpful info in a usable way that isn't too basic to be profoundly simple or simply profound for most of us
