my friends are usally alot different then me. some people are more comfortable being around others that are just like them. they like all the same things, dress alike, etc. my friends on the other hand usally like different music, dress different, etc. i mean of course we like some of the same things like swimming, nascar , etc but for the most part we like to debate lol. how about you ?

i like all my best friends although they don't like the same thing as i like.usully when we go shopping, i ask about their opinions and at last i insist on my own.then they will be very angry to say"don't ask about my opinion next time,you are ramstam woman",i laugh loudly because i know she will not,she like to give opinions

In my opinion, the first step to become bestfriends is same topic.If you cant communicate with each other,you cant enter into each other' feelings,how can you be friends? part of our brains same like each other. But we still have differences,because we a different person,we have own thinking way and experiences~ mostly,friendship is based on trust and honesty.

I really do not do the comparison thing when it comes to my friends I just accept them the way they are. I also do try to understand our differences and try to find a common ground to forge ahead with them.

I have a number of best friends (hard to choose just one) and we have almost everything in common. We all agree that in our closest friends, we want to pick people who think a lot like we do, and who like the same things. We have a few differences of opinion, but mostly we're the same.

Yeah, we are in the same page. most of my friends have the opposite character . I like talking, they prefer listening. I feel it is comfortable to find friends not the same as myself. Debating with friends is also interesting things in my daily life. after that I realize think more or different can understand each other easier . well, life is colorful!

my friends as well as my best friend generally has different interests to me but there are some things we both like, i think having friends who like all the same stuff as you can be a bit boring as there is no change in what you talk about.

well i think that my bestfriends are not usually just like me.... we are more on compatible with each other ....... barely seeing you or talking to you they know if you are in trouble or not ..... we understand and feel each other even without telling the other ....

My best friends and I have similar qualities.We also have different qualities.We also have same and different interests.But these differences make our friendship unique and fun.The most important things are we love,respect,understand, and take care of each other.

I can easily adapt to other people. I can strike a conversation from older people to little toddlers. My best friend and I share a lot of things in common. We do have differences but it doesn't affect our friendship much. We are friends from college and up until now that we have our own families to take care of. We don't communicate much now unlike before, but when we have time to see each other a day is not enough for us to talk.

My best friend and I.... when I look into the mirror it's like seeing HIS soul staring back at me through my own eyes. We are very very much alike. We like much of the same music, and pass times. We are both deep thinkers that enjoy moments of social life and a great deal of solitude during others.

Opposites attract. Most of my friends and especially my best friends are VERY different from me. I don't know why but that just seems to be how it always worked out. And debating is always fun unless you have certain friends who like to take it maybe a bit too far.

okay, I get the whole opposites attract thing, and Ive got alot of friends that are the OPPPPOSITE of me. but my very best friend .. I swear we are like TWINS. we talk the same (people cant tell the difference =P), we laugh at the same things, we are into the same things, we say the same things, we creepily finish each others sentences. though we only met this year, we've been through like, alot of the same things as each other, or something similar anyways. its just really cool and creepy =P I love it and I love her :) bffffffffes

I think diversity is important. I don't know if I would like someone just like me or not. I think it would be better to have some things in common and other things not. It is fun to learn different things and if there is nothing different about the two of you there would be nothing to learn.

I have different types of friends. I have one that typically the same as me, like we have the same types of music, dress, admire the same artist or athlete, admire the same guy sometimes. Other friends I have are exactly opposite my attitude, she is positive I am negative. She is outgoing I am shy type but eventhough there are differences we got along because I love them. Sometimes I influenced them and vice versa. It doesn't matter if they are exactly opposite as long as they are happy with you and you are happy with them.

well, my close friends and i are poles apart. our choices, desires, thoughts etc are all different but our hearts have an affection for each other.this affcetion and love makes us friends and not the similarity of qualities

utterly different. She likes cosmetics and all kind of accessories while I like outdoor and is more boyish. But we have been friends since high school. We even differ in our point of views sometimes but we get on well. I don't know why. We are just like two pieces of puzzles which is completely different but can fit one another perfectly. Really interesting.

Hi, this is mot an obligatory thing that all your fiends have to gave your taste. Every single individual is a different case. I do not have any best friend but do have a few good and like minded friends and this means they are akin to me in ideas and thoughts but they are different in their dress code, approach, food habit and many more as well. For me friends are not my alter ego.

My friends are generally different from me and that is the most good part of them that i like . they are all full of life and positive attitude.they have really helped me and they are really successful in changing me into one of them. I will be grateful to them, all along my life.well we have something in common that we all love studying but there are differences more than similarities.this has really kept us bound towards each other.well we also do debates and this is really good so that we can collectively come on a conclusion.
