Do you think that the friends of your friends are your friends, as well?

If it turned out that a stranger was a friend to a friend of yours, would you be willing to make friends with the stranger just because of that realization?
Please, vote to answer. Thanks.

Well personally hard to say, I mean of course Im not going to be out right fucking rude; however, that doesn't mean Im just inclined to like someone because they are friends of my friend. I'll give my own thoughts on the person rather than to just base it off of my friend.

In most cases.

Ill always try; lets be clear, but it never is 100% certain.

It happens, im just not going to be harsh. Until my friend finds their answer for said friend, if it isnt totally effecting them, I simply take it the way I expect to take it I mean everybody eventually talks about others when they aren't around, and thats the important part about life. What impression have they left

I don't want friends by default, so no, life isn't facebook, I don't want to be friends with my friend's friends. I barely have anything in common with general people let alone their friends.

I'd be open to the idea, depending on the person. One of my best friends was friends with some folks I'd really want to have nothing to do with.

It's case by case.

If they're willing to get to know you, and vice-versa, then why not try and become friends?
That being said, I'm not the type to go out of my way to introduce myself to strangers.
If those people are friends with my friend, the onus should be on my friend to introduce them.

Also, just because these people are acquainted with my friend doesn't automatically make them my friends.
That's not how that works.

I'll treat them with respect and try to get to know them a little bit just to see if we could be friends. If it doesn't work out, then I'm not too bothered. I will make an effort to be accepting of them, but I won't go out of my way to befriend them.

A friend of a friend would be considered a mutual friendship, but it's not always the case sometimes.

It depends on the situation, but generally speaking they are not with a few exceptions. That's largely because friends will have other circles of friends that I just don't know about, and thus they are friends of my friend, but most definitely not friends of mine, at least until I get introduced to them. At most, they would be at most acquaintances until I actually meet them as these friend zones are mutually exclusive until they meet.
