    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!

    I don't care if you are skinny,

    fat, ugly, tall, short, straight, gay, or bi. I will totally be friends with you and still love you for the way you are. You can always be yourself around me. I don't judge people for who they are and I never will. :)

    Yeah! So much, that guys end up crushing on me

    and falling in love, because I end up making them feel really comfortable around me, which makes them open up and share things they don't, otherwise. Am I a flirt? I'm bored of hearing about how easy I am to get along with. I wish I had the chance to say that to someone and be...

    Because why not? People are people,

    and all people are worth at least trying to be friends with. I've learned a lot from people different from me.

    I have a girl who is totally opposite.

    She is one of my best friends though. She can be mean to others she just put a mask on for the crowd. But I have gotten to know the real her and she is amazing just the way she is.

    Hello Stranger!

    Thanks to EP, I know that I can love a fervent Christian, an avowed Republican, people who are wealthy... EP has really granted me the opportunity to care for someone before ferreting out the ways that we differ. And it's a blessing because I've realized that you can be friends...

    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!!

    Accepting others as they are is key!

    The only thing we need to have in common is

    respect for each other. We don't even need to enjoy the same things, like or love the same things. For casual acquaintances, ironically, the bar might be higher, because you tend to need something in common to tolerate someone who isn't building a relationship with you.
