We Want To Know Wednesday


There's a new bloggy link up being hosted by several of the blogging world's best bloggers!  I'm pretty excited to be participating in this and have been anxiously awaiting to see what the questions would be like.  This week's questions are on FRIENDSHIP.

1. Do you make friends easily?
Not really, no.  I'm socially awkward and have a hard time carrying on those "getting to know you" conversations.  I have a lot of aquaintances, but as far as real hardcore friends go I don't have many, lol

2. What 3 qualities are MUST in a friend?
Someone who I can have a good KNEE SLAPPING LAUGH with, someone that I can TRUST and someone who is DEPENDABLE as a friend.

3. What makes YOU a good friend?
Well since I can't carry on conversations very well, I'm a great listener.  I'm kind of opinionated and will let my thoughts known, but I'll always listen to my friends.  I'm also extremely loyal, almost too loyal.  I'll drop anything to spend time with my friends or take a phone call from them (eventhough sometimes I don't feel they'll do the same).

4. Have you ever met a bloggy friend in real life?
No - I haven't met any of my e-friends in real life.  The sad thing is one of them actually lives about 5 hours away and she's been an online friend of mine since I was in high school.

5. Who is your best friend? Tell us about them.
I have 2 best friends that I think of more as sisters at this point.  My BFF Alicia I've known since we were 10 and I just adore her.  We have so many inside jokes and so many things that we bond over - when we're together we never stop talking and more importantly we never stop laughing. 
My other BFF, Alison, I've known since high school.  We met while we were working at TJ Maxx when we were 16, we were also college roomies for 2 years! We've had a lot of ups and downs, but she's a wonderful person and a wonderful friend. 
Both are great for going on various adventures with which is what I LOVE about them.  Each friend also has a special thing that I like to do with them, like Alicia and I are big movie goers whereas Alison and I always go to our Expos.
Both girls mean the world to me and I'm lucky to have them in my life.

So that's it!  Great questions ladies, I enjoyed answering them.  To play along visit IA, Mamarazzi, Janette or Shawn to grab the questions, the button and to link up! 

Enjoy your Wednesday!

I bet you're not as socially awkward as you think you are!

I completely agree with your qualities! Without that, I'm not sure that our friendship can grow.

I love that you're a great listener. Sometimes, that's all we need. We want to vent and just want you to listen. That's a great quality!

Thank you so much for linking up!!!

Here's the way I see it... One good friend that is loyal and trustworthy that you can tell your deepest darkest secrets to is way better than havin' a bunch of friends that you've never seen the inside of their house.

I'm pretty socially awkward too. It really makes making friends tough. That's why blogging is such a great thing--none of the awkward get to know you stuff gets in the way.

That's kind of funny. I have certain "things" with each one of my friends as well. And of course we all have our inside jokes. But one friend is my movie friend, another is my go places friend or out to eat friend....

I could be socially awkward but I think that my nerves actually make me ASK tons of questions when I first meet someone so it may not seem like I'm nervous but I am...

Megan Harmeyer said...

I forgot honesty on my friend qualities - so, so important! I'm not socially awkward...I just don't like new social situations. LOL

sarajo said...

You and me both. We would be the silent weird ones in a group. HUH?

I'm opinionated too. I try really really hard not to share them when they are not wanted. Or censor. Me thinks I fail most of the times. Oops.

I'm so jealous of your IRL friends. I totally wish I could say I have a friend from when I was 10. But 10 was a bad year for me. Really bad. Talk about outcast. That was me. LOL!

Brandy@YDK said...

i'm totally socially awkward too and say thinks that are completely inappropriate. I know, right?!

you should meet some online friends in real life. it's so fun.

Connie said...

I want to go to some movies with you!

Lourie said...

I am horrible at getting to know people. I do better in cyber space than in real life. hahaha.

Mamarazzi said...

a friend you have known via internet since HS and she is only 5 hrs away?

get in the car girl!!

Shawn said...

Getting your feet wet and getting past those first few awkward conversations is the hardest for me as well. I seem to know almost immediately if the friendship is going to be worth the work to get it off the ground or now. Having something in common is a must!

And I'm with Mamarazzi, get in the car and go girl!

Natalia said...

I haven't met anyone either, and the one I'd like to meet soon only lives across town from me :-/

Dee said...

"Almost too loyal" I'm the same way! I always feel like I give more in friendships that I get in return!
