How to make friends as an adult

The Times has a lovely series on friendship, including this great interview with psychologist Marisa Franco, author of “Platonic: How the Science of Attachment Can Help You Make — and Keep — Friends." Here's an essential excerpt for this Massachusetts-holiday Monday — so start texting!

For those looking to make a new friend or strengthen their existing friendships, what is one easy tip you suggest they try today?

I’d say to swipe through your contacts, or look at who you were texting this time last year, and reach out. You can say something simple, like: “Hey, we haven’t chatted in a while. I was just thinking about you. How are you?”

Or get started with a tip from Frog and Toad:

“What did you write in the letter?”

Frog said, “I wrote ‘Dear Toad, I am glad that you are my best friend. Your best friend, Frog.’”

“Oh,” said Toad, “that makes a very good letter.”
