I'm often wondering how I manage to make friends with people who are similar to me (about this moment many people are going to mention I met them in a Harry Potter or Hornblower forum/community - ha), but honestly I do. Quite by accident - the similarities are not just that one thing, but many, many others... not just common interests, but common sensibilities and conditions.
So how does it happen? Usually I don't befriend people - they befriend me. I just kind of step back and observe. So perhaps it's that these people manage to make friends with me, and I am similar to them, but even still - how can they tell?
This confuses me greatly. How do humans make friends? It's so bizarre.
