Science-Backed Secrets For Making Friends: Become Super Likable, Find Your BEST Friend, & Deepen Relationships with Dr. Marisa G. Franco

I am so excited to welcome Dr. Marisa G. Franco as today’s guest. Marisa is a professor, psychologist, and author of a new book, Platonic: How the Science of Attachment Can Help You Make—and Keep—Friends, which just came out this week. She’s been featured in media outlets like Good Morning America, The Today Show, The New York Times, and NPR and has spent her career studying the science and research behind friendship. On this episode we talk about:

  • why it’s so hard to make friends as an adult
  • the best trick for turning work friends into real friends
  • simple tricks to make people like you more
  • the best places to make new friends
  • how to make friends outside of your own race, age, or socioeconomic background
  • the single rule that will change how you approach making friends
  • the best friend dates
  • exactly how to have the conversations that deepen friendships (without feeling like you’re making all the effort)
  • how to turn acquaintances into close friends
  • how to make a BEST friend
  • what to do if you feel like you keep getting rejected by potential friends
  • the biggest green flags and red flags to look for when choosing new friends
  • what to do when your friends have babies, get married, or otherwise enter different life phases
  • low-hanging fruit for maintaining existing friendships with as little effort as possible
  • how to makes friends with people who uplevel your life
  • why it tends to be harder for men to make close friends (and how to help them!)
  • how to make friends when you don’t vibe with any of the people who live by you

We would LOVE to hear from you any thoughts, reactions, or takeaways you have as you’re listening, so definitely screenshot and tag me @lizmoody and Marisa @drmarisagfranco on Instagram.

Healthier Together: The Deck

Conversations for creating your healthiest, happiest life.

I’m gonna be honest with you: I’m allergic to boring conversation. I wanted to bring the types of conversations we have on the Healthier Together Podcast—ones that allow you to really build intimacy, to explore all facets of each other’s personality and go deep, quick— to the greater Healthier Together community.

With 6 categories and over 150 unique cards (including my signature interactive questions), you’ll be able to return to the deck for hundreds of hours of conversations for years to come. Makes a great gift or activity for holidays, weddings and more!
