making friends is like all things if you risk nothing then you make nothing its just that simple. To have a best friend you have to risk all. To have real Love you Have to risk all. Yes they can hurt you but better to risk and lose then to have nothing at all forever. You will win more then you lose if you use discernment before you use risk pick you you want as a real friend first people show you who they are by their actions not by their words.
You should open with this very question. Ask it in an urgent tone while expressing an unbl<x>inking stare and sweating.
