undefined but interesting friendships

Oftentimes, friendships are made with a clear and definite purpose but every once in a while someone comes into your life at a very inconvenient or unlikely time. These kinds of friendships are often the best because as it goes on, each party realizes that the friendship was meant to be, inspite of perceived differences. In the course of my life i have made several of those kind of friendships and believe me, they are worth the trouble.

Have you just met someone you find interesting but for some reason you are hesitating to go on with the friendship.Take that plunge. It doesn't matter if the person is many years younger than you,is married or single, of a different religion, gender or colour, it doest even matter if you have different oreintations.There is a reason you have met the person in question.Create time in your busy schedule to interact with your new friend. However, be cautious in order not to put yourself at risk of being molested or attacked but somehow when you meet that special person that would add meaning to your life, you would know exactly what to do. Every contact will make sense at the end of the day. but the sad thing about such friendships is that, it may end or reduce in intensity before you want it to.One of you may have to relocate or tackle other issues.Please don't cling. Let it go. Be glad for the opportunity you had and look forward to the next one that will just be around the next corner.

Such wise advice on friendships. I just recently reconnected with a friend like this - someone who came into my life at an unexpected time. Someone who showed me new ways to perceive the world. I am so thankful to have this friend again in my life.

Warm regards,
