Hello to everyone!! Today I write some questions about friendship. Feel free to use these questions in your article if you find it interesting. I just ask that you reference me in your article. All these questions were derived from my thoughts except for one. The one question which I will save for last came to me from reading a post on Noise App. Well let's get to it!!
What is a friend to you?
To me a friend can be many things. Certainly someone who listens and communicates with you. A friend can be someone you go out with to share experiences with. An individual who is trustworthy and is willing to go into the trenches with you in times of need. Having each other's back is great in any relationship.
Do you have a best friend?
I have a small circle of friends in the real world. I currently don't have a best friend. I have had numerous best friends in the past. Some of those relationships have lessoned due to being apart.
Why no real world best friend? A lot of it has to do with having family responsibility. I don't get the opportunity to bond that way with others often to consider someone in such a way.
Virtually I have friends as well. I do consider the possibility of having a best friend virtually. Currently I have someone now who is knocking on that door. It's just easier to open up and share things virtually once you have established trust.
Do you think having many similarities is necessary to become friends?
I think it helps to have some things in common. To be honest, most of the times friendships start with talking or doing something we have in common. I don't think one has to be a mirror imagine of one's self to be considered a friend. I have friends that I have a lot in common with and others that are close to polar opposites. So I say no, not required.
Have you ended a friendship with someone?
A few times I have ended friendships. I had a friend when I was 17 who went after a girl I liked. He knew I had a crush on her. It was karma for him though. Only did he lose some other friends in the process he also lost the girl. Any guesses who the girl came to? She became my girl friend for a few months, ahh. Other than that I have dropped friends that I have had trust issues with, used me, or stabbed me in the back.
Have you lost a best friend?
Yes unfortunately I have. I had a best friend who committed suicide at the early age of 19. I wonder if I was there during the time of his demons if he would still be here. I will write a future article about him, many more details. Rest in Peace David!! He left the world on 23 December 1994.
Do women or men make better friends?
For me the situation depends. I have had both male and female best friends. I feel having a good female friend it's much easier sharing inner feelings you might have. On the other side having a good male friend you can share more masculine things. An example, let's say I'm feeling down. So a guy friend might just drag me off to the bar to blow some steam off, while a female friend will take the time to listen and offer settle advise. Which would you rather seek? So I say female friends are better friends for me.
Do you believe in soulmate friends?
This question came to me on a noise post from@grey23espartinas you can see the post from her profile page here . I do think there are friends we have a special connection with. A lot I believe stems from relating to each other so well and having a lot in common. I think this level of friendship comes with reading each others mind before even speaking. Also comes with knowing each others ticks. Are all of our friends soulmates? No I think they are a rare bread. I can say that some of my past best friends haven't reached this level.
This article came in my thoughts a few days ago due to meeting a new friend. I recently discovered someone who has much in common with me. It has been rewarding chatting with this new friend.
I hope you like these 7 questions and hope you understood my answers. I have a few other questions as well that I wasn't able to insert. I guess that will be for another day perhaps.
Take care and be safe. Love you all ❤️
