I do enjoy FUCK! I’m in my Twenties but sometimes…I hate reading it.

Of course, any relationship you have needs some common ground (for example, I get all sorts of excited when I meet another cyclist) but I truthfully believe that the most rewarding relationships in my life (and I use the word “relationship” to mean family, friends, lovers) are the ones that expanded my view of the world and that allowed me to expand their world in return. Believe it or not, I don’t have many friends who are like me (loud, easily excited about everything and anything…if you know me, you know the drill)…in fact, most of my friends are self-described introverts. It’s actually really hard for me to hang out with another extrovert because I feel that there isn’t any balance, it’s just two people hanging to one extreme.

Take my friend M. and I. We are completely different people. By comparison, people would probably say that we shouldn’t be friends. We have different political views, different tastes in music, different religious views, our personalities are drastically different, and want different things out of our lives. Yet, we love each other and have been best friends since the 9th grade. Somehow, with all of our differences- we click. There’s been so many times in which I have found out that someone values something that I never valued before and boom- my world is opened to new possibilities and a new way of looking at things.

In conclusion: It’s not going to work if we find the same things to be incredible. Some things, yes, but not all the same things. Otherwise, I feel that there’s not much to discover.

edit: another tumblr posted a response to this…

I’m contemplating putting a single’s ad in the Aspen Times, with this attached. DO YOU FIND MANCHEGO INCREDIBLE? no? get out!

Point proven. I don’t even know what Manchego is, but I’m intrigued to find out why it’s so incredible!
