My wife and I just made some new friends and found their son has the same name as our son and some other traits too. It's funny how that happens. What have you found you have in common with new friends very early in the friendship?

I have this friend. The first time we spoke, we were thinking the same things and could complete each others sentences in many cases. It was really funny. I then learnt that he shared his birthday with my Mum. His interests were same as mine, which were some dry subjects like physics, history, archeology etc. Subjects which people may actually connect with geeks.LOL.It was amazing talking to him about such topics, as we learn from each other.His nature is like my dad's. He has now grown to be my best friend. :)

its funny but this happens sometimes.recently i met a friend whose named was same as my father's .i decided to tell him this when we had started sharing pretty good times.when i finally disclosed he was surprised and then told me that my name was the same as his mother's .a completely rare coincidence though but it doesn't have anything more to do as we share pretty same kind of attitude towards life.

My newest friend and I met through our daughters. Last year was both of our youngest daughters' kindergarden year. They quickly became best friends, which led to us mommies meeting. We hit it off instantly, and have been inseperable since. What do we have in common? Fot one...1st grade daughters that could pass as twins. The love of children. The gift of gab. We like to do the same type of things...like playing cards, fishing, and so on.

you know its so important for kids to bond with other kids at that precious age..we found this to be the case with our kids- our youngest son made a best friend with lots of common interests and personality traits in that year and even though many years ago that child moved 40 miles away, the two of them are still like peas in a pod and talk to each other every day. If you are friends with the mom, that will keep that important bond even stronger. God for you

yeah i did. I met my newly friend at the office when we she applied for one of our vacant position. When we started to talk we find out that we have things in common like our character traits, hobbies and our principle in life. I guess we are meant to see each other and be good friends.

As the idiom says, bird of a feather flocks together. We tend to attract and be in a company of people who has similar interest. Maybe that's why whoever I sit next to in class or just about anywhere seems to have similar interest and traits as me. We become close in just a short time! I guess we have ability unconsciously to distinguish whether a person is similar like us with just looking.
