Are You Gonna Be My Friend? A Daily Prompt Reply

How do I make friends? Well I don’t know. I guess friends kind of make me.

I was always a shy kid. I didn’t like meeting new people. I liked having the people already close to me that I could let go and be a goof. I guess you would call me an ambivert–that medium between introvert and extrovert. I was shy at first but once I let go. Holy hell, I hoped you liked me otherwise you probably go running for the hills.

Over the years I realized that there are many different personality types, and depending on the setting and IF I wanted to, I could fit into any group. But let’s be honest; who likes to pretend being someone else? So occasionally I will blend in with the different factions. But my ultimate technique to making friends? To just be myself. This crazy, random girl is who I show to people and they seem to like her. I’m able to make friends in classes and talk to people I’ve never met (on my own, no introductions). It was a long lesson, but eventually I was able to9 loosen my introvert’s hold on my personality. The extrovert is much more fun-loving.

A quip or witty remark. A movie quote or song lyric thrown into conversation can be a great way to form bonds. Or maybe that’s just my wishful thinking and I’m just delusional. I’ll let you be the judge of that.

    • Exactly. But as some of the other bloggers have pointed out, not everyone is his or herself or gives their whole self. And I think that also makes making friends harder than it has to be.

      • You are right. For me being yourself , whether you are good or bad is one of the best quality because you are open and don’t cheat anyone. The person dealing with you can also judge you easily if you remain same and doesn’t change your personality or criteria so frequently.
        Anyway .. you must stay like you are 🙂 and have a wonderful life ahead.
        May Allah bless you ameen.
