After reading the article. I do agree!
Finding a “best friend” is /can be difficult. I have had many friends in the past. Most of them? Not worth knowing!
But! that does not mean. “Giving up!”.
When I was a telemarketer/peddler. There was a law called: “reducing the law of averages!”. It means:”The more no’s you get!. “bring you that much closer to a yes!.
How many yes’s/friends? That’s why it’s called:”reducing the law of averages!”.
We go through life meeting many people/friends. What makes life that much more interesting is? Which one is or can be? My BFF/bae (soulmate)?
Think about this!
The people we meet. Are looking/expecting the same as we do! But! They and us! Either prejudge or expect the other to be that BFF/BAE as well. what happens is? We/they pre-expect too soon! Then! that friendship dissolves as fast as it began!
In general! A relationship does take the time to grow. It cannot be rushed, pushed. If you do? Something might be missed. That could have been (more) real, true, meaningful, honest, lasting.
