    One of the best, in my opinion,

    It never ceases to amaze me at the people

    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.
