Don't Force a Friendship
We are all desperate to find the perfect friend. Sometimes we want it so bad that we will take the first person who comes along.
You can't force a friendship. You have to let it go. Don't talk to someone and think that they are going to be your best friend. Talk to someone then ask them to hang out and let it grow. If you take the first person who comes along you might find yourself in a bad friendship.
You will meet many people in life. Some will stay and others will leave. Don't try to replace anyone. Hold onto the memories, be friendly and let things happen.
