Synopsis

Good Morning America ’s brand new advice guru Liz Pryor gives voice to a painful, common, yet rarely discussed phenomenon: the sudden, unexpected end of a friendship between women.

It happens without warning, and it devastates you: Your closest girlfriend, the Ethel to your Lucy, the Thelma to your Louise, cuts you off completely. No more late-night phone calls or emails, no more catch-up lunches and dinners. She has decided for whatever reason to move on with her life and left you to try to make sense of what happened. You’ve lost a loved one and you don’t know what to do.

Now, What Did I Do Wrong? provides a resource—and some answers—that you can rely on. Relationship expert Liz Pryor has had a number of these breakups herself, and so she set out to discover why they were happening. Through personal interviews and her popular website, Pryor collected hundreds of stories of friendships gone wrong. She draws on those stories to explore the dynamics of friendship breakups in a candid, intimate way, revealing the patterns, the warning signs, and some ways to put a friendship right or help it change so that it meets your and your friend’s changing lives. She also explains how to end a friendship—if you find that you need to do so—in ways that honor both parties’ feelings and your history together.

Pryor blends plain, old-fashioned, good sense and humor with genuine empathy for the thousands of women who live with the confusion and anxiety that linger after the sting of an ended friendship. What Did I Do Wrong? will validate your feelings and inspire you to be more forthright and compassionate with new and old friends.
