    Had super fun with these type of friendships.

    I mean you don't know anything at all about these people. Then they turned up. Boom! You just had fun. You can just laugh together with anything. Party together like as if they were long time friends.

    I love when you can just talk to someone,

    it might be a stranger or just a person you've spoken with one time, and you automatically click. You have this long conversation about anything and everything and it makes me so happy. Sitting up at night talking to someone about meaningful-or pointless-stuff is so amazing...

    There's nothing better like a friend that messages all day and night to check what you're doing. For me, more fun when it's a guy ๐Ÿ˜‹. But nothing serious just friends.
