Indeed. I don't think I LOOK for friends but they come to me. However, it it's necessary for a person to be my friend to have certain traits. Why? In order for two people to bond and to get along it is obvious that certain characteristics must be present. For example, I couldn't stand being the friend of someone who wasn't honest, who didn't have sense of humor, etc. I don't need for a friend to be exactly like me, but of course have some traits that I can get along with. I have befriended people that don't have the traits of a potential 'good friend' and of course friendships have ended or simply never really quite got as close as other friends have gotten. I once knew this girl who was my best friend, then I realized she wasn't mature enough and had some things in her personality that I didn't quite liked, so obviously the friendship stopped being how it used to be. Also, I believe that not only those traits but personality wise and perspective wise they must be at least a little compatible. Another friend I had, we were really close, but we were simply SO different. We viewed the world extremely different, we liked different things. So of course, the friendship didn't remained the same. However, I believe it is important to be mature enough to face situations. Even when friends don't remain as close, I believe I'm mature enough to be able to talk to any one of them. Because, it's not that friendship is going to end completely, just that it's not as close. In conclusion, even when you can remain friends with someone that isn't completely compatible with you, a potential friend to be must have certain traits in order to even let him/her in.
