    You meet people everyday.

    It could be just little encounters that comprises a "Thank you" when someone holds the door open for you, or a "Sorry" if you've accidentally bumped into someone. It could be when you're stuck in a long line and decide to make small talk with the person next to you. And...

    Youtube.

    Unexpected friendships are awesome. Even online ones. I was doin' stuff on YouTube, commenting on videos and stuff, when I saw that one comment. It was rude. Very rude. To the entire YouTube community,but NOT the video. And I replied,even though I knew it would create a YouTube...

    y'know any time I would go out on some "epic

    adventure", as I called it, I'd always end up meeting a string of new people. I remember going our at 9 in the morning to go to church to see some friends. it was only 1 1/2 miles from my house but I'd stopped halfway to get soda. I had asked the guy ahead of me for a cigarette...

    It's always nice when you don't have to look

    for love. When it comes to you on it's own, suddenly, at just the right moment. Friendship isn't about who's known you longest, but about who's always willing to be there when you need them. This can often can from an unexpected place. Sometimes life happens, and sometimes it...

    One of the best, in my opinion,

    and most unexpected thing you can do is help someone you have a problem with when they need a helping hand. It shakes things up and can even settle differences and sprout an unlikely, lifelong friendship. I think the outcome is only always beneficial to you. Expect the...

    It never ceases to amaze me at the people

    that are just hanging out around you... Some are very genuine others pretend to be. In any case there is the potential to make new and lasting friendships from the people that you'd least expect. Now if you're like me and you've "experienced" what's on the experience project...

    These are magical are they not?

    Meeting someone by chance and just clicking. Almost like it was destined to happen, perhaps just like falling in love, just a different kind of love.

    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...

    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.
