first sign - July 9th 2010, 08:22 PM

whats the first sign to you that lets you know whether you should be friends with someone or not?

to me the first sign that i shouldnt be friends with someone is either: their way of life ( if i cant agree with it then it'll causes way too many issues) or when i realize that they cant fully be themselves or i cant fully be myself around them for whatever reason.

the first sign that they would make a great friend or i should be friends with them is when we instantly click, or i can just talk to them( i pretty much fail at talking so if i can do this with them and it doesnt feel forced then yay!) or i just agree with their way of life.

" One day at a time, this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering. "

i wonder when i'll finally jsut start accepting myself, when i'll stop saying i wish i could be like that person.

i have facebook, and myspace. and you can ask for it. :P

I love being able to act like myself around people. If I can tell you a funny joke or make you laugh, thats usually the sign that we are going to be friends.
If you can make me laugh, then thats usually a sign that we will be close friends.

I can pretty much talk to anyone, but my closest friends are the ones that walk to the store with me at 12 am and sing opera while walking down the street. Its those kinds of moments that really define who your friends are.

The first sign that I should be friends with somebody is when I can think of something specific that I would like to do with him or her on an ongoing basis, something that would constitute a friendship. If it is easy to find a common ground, as in what you said, emoticon, that is also a good indication that I should be someone's friend.

The first sign that I should not be someone's friend is if he/she is disrespectful toward me.

If I'm crying more than I'm smiling, that's a sign the friendship needs to end. And for me, the signs that signify I shouldn't start to spark a friendship have to boil down to how I feel about that person internally (relying solely on intuition).

That same gut feeling is one I rely on for when I decide a friendship is worth pursuing. It generally leads me into creating extremely close bonds extremely fast, but despite the pace, the friendships generally last a while.

It's safe to say that I can generally tell within the first conversation whether or not we're going to click. If we don't, I generally keep talking and getting to know ya, but our friendship will never be as strong as the friendships I have with people I initially feel that connection with, if that makes sense.
