Trust is key.

I’d say you’d need compatibility even to accept eachother’s differences, as they will always be there! But you’d need someone who is capable of understanding that while letting things exist in harmony. Opposing views are very important as they help us grow and learn… however you cannot do that if they other person wouldn’t consider or listen.

I would say my husband and I were not compatible when we were dating.

It took us years to get where we are at through growth. But we were opposites and somehow it worked. We are still opposite and have a balance. I am saying compatibility doesn’t always have to be there.

Somebody can work your last nerve. I think especially someone you are attracted to can work your last nerve. Then end up becoming a life partner or long term friend.

I love those forbidden relationship stories. Or those stories where the individuals start out as enemies and end up being best friends.

You can speak to someone on a consistent basis but it doesn’t mean you’re close friends with them. You can never have an awkward moment but that also doesn’t mean they’re your true friend. There are many definitions for true friend as there is no concrete meaning for it. I think a true friend to me is a friend who not only equally respects you as you do to them, but they help you grow, mature, and set you on a right path when you need that check. a true friend that helps me grow as a person, respects me and doesn’t forget who themselves are at the same time, and even if we separate for a while, we will be able to speak to each other again like as if we’ve never disconnected. A true friend is a real friend who is not afraid to disagree with you, to guide you, and to grow with you is what I think

Perfect. Bravo response. Relationships are a lot of work. Disagreements are bound to happen with any relationships. Some people have an unrealistic view of how difficult it is to build a meaningful, impactful friendship.

Some friendships are short-term. Some friendships are professional. Some friendships are toxic.

True friends are there for you always regardless of whatever and acquaintances are for pleasure if you know what I mean.

Haha. Some acquaintances are there to annoy you as well. Can’t change coworkers

True friends are always there for you no matter what during worst and best times. Acquaintances are just there for talking , they come and go but will never stay permanently
