i've been wondering what it is about a person that makes me like them. there sure is something about some people that makes me get along with them from the word "go".
it's not vibes. coz i've noticed this with some of you blog-pals as well. and i don't know how u can get "virtual vibes"! right from the first comment, i know we'll hit it off. and usually, we do.
if i look back on my current good friends, the ones who've been there thru fog and sunshine; ALL of them, have been the ones i 'knew' i'd get along with.
on campus, i knew i liked minal even though we'd never really spoken to each other. then, when we started speaking, we hit it off really well.
same with suruchi. from the moment, we said hi - i knew i'd like this gurl. and this has been the pattern. ALL my existing good friends - i've known that they would get along with me. and try as i might, i can't put a finger on what it is.
that pattern has carried forth to blog-ville as well. i've never met any of you, but can chat up with some of you like there's no tomorrow. Vin was stunned when i told him i'd had an hour-long conversation with preethi. and it wasn't online. given my sheer hatred of telecons, he was seriously shocked! knowing how possessive i am, he's also surprised that galadriel has my blessings to flirt with him, despite me never having met her. his list of surprises can go on... but then we'll wait till he starts a blog for that!
isn't it amazing how we just 'gel' with some... while the others, we need some time to become friends with? it's not that i don't like them or anything... just takes time to bond that well with them.
but i guess there's no need to figure this out as yet!
afterall, as some wise person somewhere once said: "if it aint broke, don't fix it!"
