You’re thinking about cutting back on the alcohol in your life, but you worry that your friends won’t understand. Maybe you think they’ll stop inviting you to hang out with them, or that they’ll think you’re boring and lame.
Mike Scheuerman and his staff at Friendship Wine & Liquor in Abingdon, Md. are proving those worries wrong.
1. Three Stages of Friendship
In stage 0, momentary physical interaction, children simply play with one another. Selman found that this stage is common in children between the ages of three and six. At this stage, friends are often based on circumstance rather than genuine similarities.
In the second stage, fair-weather cooperation, children are concerned with fairness and reciprocity. If they do something for a friend, they expect their friend to return the favor. If a friend does not do as they expect, they will not spend time with that person anymore. Children in this stage may also take it personally if a friend likes someone that they don’t.
In the final stage, intimate and mutual sharing, a friendship becomes a close and personal connection. Friends share their family members, intimate details of their life and help each other accomplish their goals in life. Intimate friendships are a great source of support and inspiration, and are often seen as an ideal.
2. Friendship School White
Delicate. Fresh. Fruity. Fun. This may very well be the perfect white wine with aromas of grapefruit and marmalade and crisp green apple and lemon flavors. Enjoy with spicy peanuts, soft cheeses and the music of your choice.
