I Like Unexpected Friendships

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 246 People

    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...

    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...

    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.

    Finding a friend is like diving for oysters. One encounters a lot of empty shells, until that precious pearl is found.
