SEND TO A FRIEND:

    I already have some weird friends in my list,

    (not here obviously) and I love them because they don't change for my sake.I think that's a good mentality to be oneself and I respect that.

    Walking away from a friendship

    that no longer benefits you isn't wrong; it means you're a stronger person for doing so. Being able to accept that this person is not inherently bad, just bad for you and your life, is what makes you noble. You are allowed to terminate toxic relashionships. You have to...

    Or not. My friend 'broke up' with me.

    And here I thought my other friends could help me get over this.. Until I realized I really don't have other friends. My non existent network suffered a blow there.

    As long as our personalities mesh well together,

    I can get along with just about anyone. It is good to be friends with people you have things in common with, but sometimes it is nice to have friends from all different walks of life.

    I am Jewish. So many people around the world

    hate us, hate me. I have done little harm I am aware of! I have non-Jewish friends! I value these friendships immensely!

    My friends usually have to be at least somewhat

    social, where as I have high social anxiety, they have to pick up my slack. The people I'm best with are people who are willing to get to know me and get close to me, then I am able to be myself around them.

    I like to befriend everyone!

    And I really mean that when I say it. I appreciate everyone's differences! I would say I'm pretty easy-going. In school I was friends with people from every social group...nerds, stoners, choir kids, popular kids, jocks, loners, cheerleaders, band geeks, emos, outcasts. I'm...

    I have friends who's interests

    and personalities are very different if not completely opposite of mine. As long as you see value in each other and cherish each other's feelings that's all that matters. Number one respect each other. Number two have fun!!

    There was a friend I had met on here.

    Who was very kind to me. We parted ways due to my general distrust in people and subtle fears in me, caused due to my state of mind back then. We parted ways rather abruptly and also painfully. I blamed my friend for it and also convinced myself that I couldn't stand their...

    I enjoy meeting and becoming friends

    who are completely different than I am. I work with people of all races, ages, genders and any other differences you can think of. That is what makes it enjoyable.

    I love people who can make me laugh.

    It's the most important trait I look for in anyone. I think it's what I enjoy doing most, to laugh. It's the best cure for anything in my opinion.

    My best friend is my complete opposite.

    She's a bit of materialistic, I'm simple, she's a pain in the arse, I'm a bit tamed (sometimes), she can't go a day without her phone, I can go a year without my phone, she likes to talk, I like to listen, she hates reading, I live to read. She likes Justin Bieber/ Chris Brown...
