What kind of friends do you have?


The other day, I found myself thinking about which traits my friends have in common. I have a lot of good friends, and I was wondering if I have a tendency to choose the same kind of people as my friends or if their personalities are all over the place.

After thinking about it for a while, I realized that my friends do have some things in common. Here they are: 1) a good sense of humor (I make fun of them a lot); 2) strong (I make fun of them a lot); and 3) easiness (I make fun of them a lot).  I don’t like D-R-A-M-A, and I like to laugh, and my friends are like that too.

I also like people that are easy going and self-deprecating. I like people that don’t get mad if I forget to call them on their birthday (though I rarely do), or if I can’t make it to a dinner once in a while. My point is that I don’t like to worry about my friends getting mad at me. Easy! Just be easy, please.

On this vein, I am also aware of the kind of people that don’t love me, and that would be very sensitive people.  I have to be very careful with people that have a gentle soul because it is easy for me to hurt their feelings as I don’t have a gentle soul myself.

I am getting better as I get older, and I try to be compassionate around those who are more sensitive than me, but it is hard! I have a lot of siblings, so I was raised in the jungle! I had to fight for everything, and when I say fight, I mean blood, tackles and punches – not for the faintest of heart.

What about you? Do you look for similar traits among your friends? or, are you more tolerant than me? I would love to hear.

    What a great post, Mila! It was fun reading about your friends. I love my friends, but interestingly, many of them are quite different from eachother. I suppose that the different friendships give the different parts of my personality a chance to express. I am like you, though, in that I really like easygoing personalities who are not easily offended or hurt. I am sensitive in some ways (very empathetic and compassionate,) but I am extremely easygoing in my relationships and I don’t get offended or hurt easily either. As you know, I also love people who make me laugh! Take care! 🙂

      About life, laughing is so important! yet, there is so many people without a sense of humor… I am happy you liked the post!

    I think you’re one of the most compassionate people I know! You always give everyone, even strangers, the benefit of the doubt.

    I tend to choose friends who are like me. And apparently since I’m a double earth sign (lol), I want people who are also grounded.

    PS – I have a blog! But I haven’t updated in a while.

      WOW! I am so happy you started a blog. I loved it! It is so nice to be able to express yourself like that.
      Also, thank you for the compliment. I know I can be a nice person, but sometimes I can also be a pain in the butt!

    Mila , to me you have a gentle soul !! You are direct , honest and truthful . Does that make your soul harsh ?
    Anyway , I like my friends to be funny !! Funny in a laugh out loud , pee in your pants way , not at the expense of others . I like my friends to see the humor in themselves in me and in life . I like my friends to amuse me and themselves . I like friends who surprise me with new ideas , new and fresh insights . I also like friends who are truthful and can be very very sad and not be afraid of feeling that way .
    I love my friends … I smile thinking of them .

      Well, if there is somebody that I know with a good sense of humor, that would be you! I really like to hear what you had to say about this! Humor is so important. I like smart people too, but that is not a requirement, though, to be funny, I think you need to be smart.
      loved reading your comment!
