You can be my friend. This just means that you are a person that I will like.
Can you be my friend means that I will trust you, be honest with you, and won’t cheat you.
Now, this is the last thing I want to bring up but for those who don’t know, the word friend is an online greeting that is so common now that it’s often used as an excuse to do things that would be illegal if someone actually asked you to do it. The practice is called “friending” and it is not an official term. The practice is actually legal to do because a lot of companies and services accept friend requests.
Well, my first mistake was taking friendship at face value. Friendships are not illegal. But I think most of us would agree that ‘being friends’ is more of a social thing than just about anything else. And when you get into your 20’s and 30’s, the social aspects of friendship becomes a little more important.
Friendship is social not because of what you’re friends do, but because you’re friends do things together. People who are friends do things together because there isn’t anyone else to do those things for them. If you’re only friends with people because they’re in the same field or you’re in the same college, you’re not really that close.
Friends are social because youre close because you want to be and because you want to do stuff together. The only real reason you can be friends with someone is because youre friends are in the same field and you like the person. There are no friendships on the Internet. Instead, you are friends with people because they share the same interests and hobbies and you like them and you want to do things together.
Friendship is often a bit of a misnomer. Friends are mostly people you like and they like you back. Friends are people you like because you like them and because they like you. Friends are people you like because they like you. There are friendships that are a bit more complicated than that, but they all fall into the same category.
For the record, I’m not advocating for people to start dating other people just for the hell of it. If people are just friends, what’s the harm? However, if the other person’s interests and hobbies are the same as yours and you really like them, then it might be worth it. In fact, I’m actually suggesting that you start dating them because you have a connection.
That’s right. If you like someone, and they like you, then you might be able to get along. That might just be a way to connect that you both like to do something together. I’m sure if you and your best friend had a really fun, intense, intimate, and meaningful relationship, you and your best friend could make it work. I’m not trying to tell you you have to marry someone you like just to have a friendship.
