Publisher's Summary

We Should Get Together is the handbook for anyone who's ready for better friendships, now.

Have you recently moved to a new city and are struggling to make friends? 

Do you find yourself constantly making plans with friends that fall through?

Are you more likely to see your friends' social media posts than their faces? 

You aren't alone. Millions of adults struggle with an uncomfortable and persistent ache: platonic longing, which is the unfulfilled wish for authentic, resilient, close friendships.

But it doesn't have to be this way. Making and maintaining friendships during adulthood can be hard or, with a bit of intention and creativity, joyful. 

Author Kat Vellos, experienced designer and founder of Better Than Small Talk, tackles the four most common challenges of adult friendship: constant relocation, full schedules, the demands of partnership and family, and our culture's declining capacity for compassion and intimacy in the age of social media. 

Combining expert research and personal stories pulled from conversations with hundreds of adults, We Should Get Together is the critically acclaimed, much-beloved, modern guide for making and maintaining stronger friendships. 

With this book, you will learn to:

  • Make and maintain friendships when you (or your friends) keep moving
  • Have deeper and more meaningful conversations
  • Triumph over awkwardness in social situations
  • Become less dependent on your phone
  • Identify and prioritize quality connections
  • Find time for friendship despite your busy calendar
  • Create closer, more durable friendships 

Full of relatable stories, evidence-based guidance, practical tips, and 55 suggested activities, We Should Get Together is the perfect book for anyone who wants to have dedicated, life-enriching friends and who wants to be that kind of friend, too.

A beautiful and brilliant wake up call to the richness we’re missing out on in life.

I had high hopes for this book based on hearing the author Kat talk at an event. And let me tell you, this book did not disappoint.

It was very thorough in dismantling the excuses for why we as adults don’t invest in cultivating true and life giving friendships.

It’s insightful and hopeful. It has the type of honesty that stings a bit yet in the end makes you better for it.

Not only does Kat go over the issues plaguing us from making friendships, she is generous and abundant with providing practical and flexible ways to start, rekindle and invest in friendships that thrive.

I loved it.

The only chapter I was missing was one on kindling online connections. Which from my experience give so much value especially when your local community you’re in may not be able to provide.

But really, I’m knit-picking here.

We Should Get Together is a practical handbook for those of us craving connection in a world that belittles platonic, deep and real friendships.

It’s a refreshing read for the friendship thirsty.

Great for another audience

Majority of books applies to young people not in a committed relationship or with children. Good ideas but little attention paid to difficulties experiences by parents, etc
