    Do you enjoy meeting different people?

    Meeting different people is one of my best moments. I like to share conversations. What do you think?

    Yes, I do enjoy meeting all kinds of people especially when they are from different countries to mine. I learn a lot of different cultures and also different or new language.

    I do enjoy meeting different people. I learn a lot about cultures, beliefs and traditions when I meet people who have a life that is different than mine.

    Yes. I do like to meet different people. But i also feel that one must be able to accept little personal criticism and be accommodative to really appreciate and be part of group of people.

    Those who cannot be flexible in their acceptance do not get accepted too during such meetings.

    One has to be very easy going for others to discuss and feel free to discuss any thing and everything in this world. Also they should be able to feel that one is not going to gossip later.

    This can be achieved but only if discussions are kept as closer to the topic possible. It should be not enforced but one should let the topic be recalled back in a very tactful way, only then the meetings will be enjoyable and fruitful.

      Hi Hari Prasad S thank you for  taking part here. Different people have different mentalities and  grasp in conversation in a different way. It is  important  to avoid gossip.

    DDE my sweet friend,
    Here in the far west of America we say "different" like you do to mean someone a little bit weird. Different here does not reference "new". We speak of fanatics as different. We speak of handicapped children as different and special. We are taught in kindergarten to cherish different. To us different is more akin to diversity in a positive light.
    You to us who read all your works are different. You speak our language in a way that is foreign to us. You came from a strange place in Africa and you are now in a strange place in someplace like Croatia. You have shared with us many very personal things that is not like we share. You are different though I know you.
    So to answer your question in that light. I love you for you are different and replenish me in newness of thought. I am better for having known you. I am what you would here call a cowboy preacher. You are my insight into a world I would not otherwise know. You are an angel.

      Thank you Devika,
      What a great way to meet different people right here.

    Naturally Devika, meeting people itself is pleasurable and satisfactory, because everybody is different. We are "different '' from each other as  the family members, different in character or quality, unusual, and I like that. Even meeting a total stranger , engaging in conversation is challenging since my strange " accent" I am different to them as they are to me; we have  different stories to share yet unique, interesting , enjoyable...
    An Interesting question as well enjoyable comments, because of difference we are.

      Hi Michael-Milec thank you for sharing your answer here. Meeting the different as I have this summer has encouraged me to know more about other cultures and lifestyles.

    Eric has probably the best answer , DDE , different is awesome , beautiful . challenging ,  confusing ,  rewarding .   passions ,ideas  ,  Our  interpretations of the differences in other peoples ;  is the way good hearts grow !  It's the way beautiful souls relate , it's the way we fall in love !  They are how we grow and improve .

    Only positive growths begin with our differences   .

    As for hubbers ; its how we make amazing new  friends !
