Weekend Wandering

Please answer today's question on your own blog, any time until next weekend. Just link to this blog (or to this post) so I can follow the progress of the discussion.

The question is: How do you choose your friends?

wow, i've missed a lot. gotta put you on my blog roll so i can remember. was just looking at all your photographs...very nice. you have a good eye for things. one of the ones that really caught my eye was the 'time' one.

as for how do i choose my friends...i'm very particular. i can tell right away if i'm going to like someone or not. if i don't feel like you're someone i'd want to hang out with on a daily basis or want to get to know, i won't. i also only choose those i can trust. one thing i do know though, is that i'm always drawn to other scorpios...i get along w them all (so far anyways lol)

I have just answered this on my blog David. Interesting question...I guess we dont choose, they "become" our friends dont you think?

Friendships either develop or they don't. I don't think you can arrange one.

very nice photographs! Thanks for stopping by my blog.

I have to go with Maggie on this one. Either I find myself thinking about a person, wanting to know more, or I feel myself putting up that wall of "Oh, I'm far too busy to get involved in all this right now..."

Usually, as with any relationship, I find that it's chemistry. When I met my friend Shelly, who is a co-worker. I knew from her first smile and handshake that she was a quality person who could develop into a friend. She has.

Peace - D

As my English is not so good, I don't start a deep discussin in my blog. So I say only some words.
They are:
1.intuition;
2. occasion, caused by 'higher leading power' (yes, I beleive in such a thing);
3.practical needs.

May-be I'm fatalist, but my life - already 55 years now, has affirmed it...

Now that's a good one right up my street. If I can distract myself long enough I will post...!

I have tons of friends .becaue ?I am a non threatening listener - people gravitate to me and I to them- Good friends now that's a whole other story - only a few and those are the ones with which I have a lot in common and whom I know I would go the exta mile for and vice versa. One buried my dog. one picked me up from cancer surgeries , another 2 call and worry about me ,another prays for me all the time-that extra

I choose the friends who choose me. That way it is mutual. Usually when you meet someone, there is that little "click" of synchronicity that says, "Hey, we're friends".

Sorry, I answered this on your blog instead of mine. Still friends? :-)

Maggie May said...

My post is in! It is called "Connie You Piss Me Off Sometimes....." Sorry about the title! Give it a chance!

David, thanks for stopping by my blog. I will have to give this some thought. Of course it will be a creative way to send my friends your way.

Crystal Jigsaw said...

What a thought provoking question. You have some great questions to ask which certainly cause a stir. I shall have a think about this one, David. I am rather particular I have to admit.

If one wanders into my sphere, I grab them quickly in case they make a run for it!

Hi I am very new to blogging. Crazycath told me to look at your post and I will post something about how we chose friends. Cath is a very close friend to me and I am grateful to have her we met through work during a particularly difficult time politically. We have supported each other ever since ("Thanks Cath")

CrazyCath said...

Hi David - my post is up at The Chosen Ones

Posted. It will come up at 12:01 a.m. Hawaii Standard Time (the only kind of time Hawaii has).

There are people in my life who I deliberately, consciously chose to get to know better in hope that they would choose me as their friend. Good life-long relationships should be cultivated and nurtured -- albeit some need more tending then others.
