I usually give anyone a fair chance when it comes to being friends. I am not picky. If they seem like someone I would enjoy hanging out with and talking to, then I will be friends with them. Friends that are shady usually show their true colors in due time, so until then I am nice and friendly to everyone.

You are right, but you can save time by making them show their true faces and see wether you like them or not in their true form :)

He might be polite, but what about if he doesn't share your ideas, and even contradicts your way of thinking? I think that your personalities should be at least close..

I take a step back and see what their values are, how they think about life, etc. I guess I'm kind of like you, I look for someone who is kind of like myself. lol - if that makes sense. I'm not saying I wouldn't be friends with someone totally different - but it would be easier to hang out with someone that I have a lot in common with.

If I tell someone what I look 4, then the person will definitely try 2 fig. himself or herself in that image if they feel they r lacking.Well, 4 the thinking lot they will choose 2 think ,or keep a convsn going 4 smtime if they think worthy. Friend is one who remains what or who he or she is and help others to grow. For me God alone is my friend, for the moment I strike a friendship with someone I'm definitely pressing in the expectation button.
