Would you say that you are capable of explaining why exactly you are drawn towards certain people who you have developed a close relationship with? If you say that it is their personality that you find interesting, why do you think that is the case? There are various personality traits that are unique to each individual, but I am sure there are a certain few that usually come to mind when you think of your friend. How come those traits are so important to you and not some other attributes that your friend possesses? Also, how do you feel about the statement that says that opposites attract? I am aware that such a statement is too simple to properly explain the chemistry between two people, but in what context is it supposed to be used to make sense?

Whatever other thoughts come to mind related to this topic, feel free to write them down.

I like my best friends because they like me. And they care about me.

I don't know what else to say, it's hard to verbally explain why I like certain people.

stranger vs friends

stranger -> friends -> best friends

without knowing something about each other we will remain as strangers

I don't have best friends. I do have a fiancé tho, so it's close enough. I like him because of the affection and attention I receive.

Among countless other things.

My best friends had very similar childhoods to mine, and we're very similar in terms of what we like. We can have intelligent conversations with one another as well, that's rare to find in most people.

I have often thought about this, and I really have to say it's probably mostly due to always having been their friend. I don't really know if I'd end up becoming friends with my two oldest friends if I were to meet them today for the first time; the one I have known for close to 20 years now is almost the exact opposite of me, he married his first girlfriend, studied to become an engineer, and values stability in his work over anything whereas I want the freedom to do creative work even if it means I have to live hand-to-mouth. He is also rather conservative and right-leaning, I'm more "what others want to to with their lives doesn't concern me" and vote mostly for environmental movements, and he even has a pretty difficult personality (I went on a week-trip with him once, I was pretty fed up with the dude after a couple of days), I probably wouldn't get along at all with him.

The second guy, whom I have "only" known for about 15 years, I'd probably like if I met him now, I have much more in common with him than with friend number 1 and he really is a pretty nice dude, but he is also the type who makes friends left and right which is something I'm not. So I probably wouldn't think he valued my friendship enough for me to put in any work for the said friendship; we might become acquaintances, or drinking buddies, or speak at school or work, but I doubt we'd become very close.

My best friend is a classic example of an introvert and I'm a classic example of an extrovert.

We share similar opinions, similar background, similar intelligence, and similar humor.

Overall, common ground is usually why people become best friends.

I like my best friend because she's always there when I need her and understands me as I do her!

I don't have close friends, but I tend to like people who have a warped sense of humor and share at least one or two interests with me.

I don't really like my friends all that much

The person I'm probably closest too is my brother, and I just like that I can feel comfortable around him and talk to him about anything. I think I would love to have a friend like that.
