    I am friends with people of all ages,

    races, religion and from all walks of life. I don't see differences between them, I think a lot can be gained and I think myself lucky to have found such a diverse range of people. Even if you do not agree with someones views it does not mean you cannot be friends or they do...

    However, a level of intelligence is always

    appreciated. I don't necessarily mind seeing your ****, but a simple hello and a discussion of who you are would be nice. An approach that inspires is more intellectual. Words about you not photos of your ****, your ***, flowers, or scenes of lovers getting it on...... Do you...

    That's like me and all of my friends,

    we're into totally different things but that's what makes our friendships so interesting because we might not be into the same things but we are still friends also it helps as its easy to make a conversation and also you can learn from them and they can learn from you.

    My best friend and I have a lot in common

    yet we are completely different.. He's a guy (duh!), he's a year older than me, he's loud, he's more social, he's smarter (lol) but about all.. He knows me better than anyone in the world.. He's the only person I have told of my secrets

    Accepting others as they are is key!

    I enjoy learning how other people see the world, so many different perspectives. If we are only stuck to liking one type of people then you come off as closed minded and you can't see past a curtain that reveals so many interesting people and ways of thinking! Why not accept...

    I like having friends

    that like the same things that I do...or at least some things...but I also enjoy having friends that are totally opposite of me. You learn more from them. Like I'm insecure, introverted, shy to an extent, cynical, negative...geez I THINK I have some good traits somewhere!!LOL...

    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!!

    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.
