What attracts us to certain people? Lately I have been around a few new people that I feel attracted to, not in a physical way but in an emotional way. Males and females alike, people that make you feel good by just being able to be yourself, without any borders and restrictions. There are certain qualities that attract me to certain people, some are kind, some have a wicked sense of humour, some are just very knowledgeable, some are just too cute in the way they act, some are amazing human beings, some have power, some have the same issues, some are helpful and understanding, some are supportive, some are compassionate and passionate about certain things, some are the total opposite of me.... Isn't that what should attract us to people and isn't that how we choose the people we associate with? I don't care if it's a girl or boy, it's the person they are and how I feel in their presence and how I am allowed to be me while being around them. Now some say females and males can't be just friends, well to that I say "bullshit", I always had more guy friends even as a kid and young adult, people think and make up stuff about you either way anyway, but I do value the input and friendship of all my male friends and acquaintances and I wouldn't trade them for anything. Thanks guys.
