My closest friends are the ones that accept me for who I am without anything else having to be added. We have similar personalities even if our interests are completely different. This post is making me think, and I've just realized that my friends, without knowing each other more than briefly, all have the same laid back attitude. We like to joke around and always drip with sarcasm but would always be there for one another, even if the other person did something HORRIBLE. We have the same humor, the same level of understanding. Ever tell a joke and someone just doesn't get it? well that happens to me ALL the time--except with these people. Ever say something like "hey you remember that one time we went to that one place?" and the person remembers it instantly without having to describe it at all? Ever call someone in the middle of the night because you and your boyfriend broke up, you lost your job, you realized you didn't have enough money for rent, or any other circumstance, and your friend gets out of bed and drives over in 15 minutes, makes you something to drink, and spends the night cheering u up--even tho they have to be at work at 6 am?
So i guess my requirements are people who are
. I've had a lot of friendships in the past where people used me or didn't respect me, but I always thought that I should stick in there because they are my "friends".. Well thru the years I learned what REAL friendship is. I have a lot of aquaintances, but few friends, and if anyone calls me picky I'll admit I am. The people I have for friends are as different as night and day in their lifestyles and interests. And I'm completely different than any of them. But that's what makes it interesting. Plus we're the same on the things that matter..
