Do you think "birds of a feather flock together" in platonic friendship?
Or is it possible to be friends with people who are different from you?
Not necessarily..opposites can give each other different viewpoints..I do not think platonic relationships have a barrier, as both parties, I assume, have understood that it will never be a romantic relationship..no sex, no attachments, purely intellectual or social interaction..which allows you to call them late at night and say "hu hu, I am feeling fat"..and them being able to say "Don't be ridiculous. Go to bed, I have company.."
I think that at times their is a sort of connection that draws us to certain people. When I was feeling "down", I noticed I also was attracted to people with a similar background. It wasn't obvious at first, but through talking I realized we all had a similar story. So my goal became that I would better myself, have a stronger mind and be happier. In having this goal, I believe it will attract more positive people of the same soul and spirit.
