Yesterday I met a new friend "by mistake"but luckily.When I was walking in the park nearby without anything to do, a person called a name that I didn't know at all.The person called the name several times, but none of the people in the park answered him. At last, the person came up to me,and said a little angrily," Why didn't you answer me?"But before he finished his words, he was so surprised that I was not his friend at all.He said sorry to me for he had made a mistake and thought I was his friend.I said friendly to him,"Yeah,we are friend now, aren't we?"He laughed happily,"Yes, we are good friends now,"Then we gave our names to each other,and introduced ourselves. I think it is just a small thing in our life when someone makes small mistakes that will not bring bad results but interesting humor.So I just put the small affair on the bottom of my brain.But this morning I received a call from this person, who invited me to have lunch with him. How lucky I am!How happy I am!

You are very lucky to meet a new friend who was kind enough to invite you to lunch. I've also been wrong in recognizing people but luckily it happened on twitter so I do not really feel embarrassed.

Hello there. I think the story of your meeting is really interesting and a bit funny. I like his reaction when he finally came up to you and he found out that you are not really the friend he thought you were. I also liked your reaction and response to him. At least, you became friends instantly. It's good you were able to meet someone and he became your new friend. Maybe, if you would remain friends, after some years, you would really think of your first meeting and you would both smile and laugh. The beginning of your friendship is really cool. Sometimes, I think some people are really similar to each other. Last June, I was able to meet my college classmate and she was able to introduce to us her ex-boyfriend. They were together that time because they went to the same occasion and they are still good friends even though they already broke up. I really thought I knew the guy. I kept on asking for the name of his ex-boyfriend but my classmate said another name many times. Then, I asked her again for the last time if his ex-boyfriend was a member of a theater arts guild, she said he wasn't. It was just good I didn't approach his ex-boyfriend the first time I took a glance of him that time. The person who really looked like him is my boyfriend's friend so I also wanted to introduce myself to him or ask if he could still remember my boyfriend. It's good I didn't do it or else, I was able to commit a mistake too and I would be a bit shy. Though, what happened to you was really good. I think you are a kind and approachable person. I hope you would really be good friends. Just enjoy dealing and spending some moments with your new friend. Stay cool and happy. Happy myLotting to you. :)

You can make more and more friends at any manner when you are good at the heart, and into making friends. In your case, it is amazing that you immediately give trust by introducing yourself to a stranger. Well, not bad especially if he/she is also a good person at heart.
