You cannot choose your family , but you can choose your friends - so what kind of friends do you choose? Like in the trio pictured above , some choose friends who basically look and dress the same way as they do, while others choose a mix of different types and personalties. You would also find that some women - and men too - prefer to hang out with friends who are much less attractive than they are. And you can guess why. Some would prefer - if they could - to be friends with the rich and famous, the popular or those who are rapidly moving up the ladder of success. And of course - there is nothing wrong with having friends in high places. My main criteria for a friend would be someone who is kind, true , listens and has a great sense of humor. What's yours?

I've never *chosen* friends. Nothing of what you've mentioned here applies to me. People have crossed my way, sometimes in bizarre situations. Acquaintances have turned into friends. Some have stayed friends, others have moved out of my circle or I out of theirs.

This is true you cannot choose your family but you can choose your friends. People would say same feather flock together. same hobbies flock together. Since it is your choice to choose your friends then try choosing people who really are true to you and who have sense of respect.
I don’t really have a criteria in choosing a friend. I just know when someone is going to be a great one. I have friends from different walks of liked and different ages. I have friends as young as 20 and as old as 65. I will be turning 40 early next year.
