Although friendships often promote compassion, shared perspectives and overall understanding, getting there from a state of non-acquaintance isn't always straightforward. Younger years offer more chances to tumble into lifelong bonds, but as we grow older, the transition from stranger to friend can become more rocky. This week, we welcome Sarah Pruski to explore the nuances of the question "Can we be friends?" What vulnerabilities does it illuminate? How is it uncomfortable for some and appealing for others? How does it create attention where some might prefer subtlety?
