Have you noticed how quickly you vibe so good with someone and with others even after tonnes of efforts, it is just a superficial bonding? A person may completely be an unknown stranger but when you start talking it feels like you are long lost friends meeting/talking after ages! And then there are people who you have known for years and may be even relatives but even after trying to bond with them, you just share this over the skin kind of relationship because you have to! So you just smile and talk to them, showing so much interest as if they mean the world to you!And its only you who knows its a farce.
I certainly have tonnes of people that I know which I can put in both of these categories!
Once I was talking to one such stranger and when it was time to go our own ways, I very casually said "Bye friend." And that person said "Are you sure you can call me a friend yet? I think I will still call you just an acquaintance." I agreed. But then sometimes out of courtesies we do tend to show the extended arm of friendship. I definitely do. Do you too?
Lets talk about the former group of people since the other group doesn't need much of our attention anyways..right? :D The ones with whom you just click immediately. With whom the chemistry is instant! So many occasions when I've been left awed and probably shocked too at myself that how could I be so comfy with a complete stranger in such a short span of time. So much so that we even decide to share some contact information so that we can be in touch from now on.
From a short meeting at a bus stop or on the road or in the bus or in the train or in the lounges of airports/malls and even a simple bump at a shop, how it grows into a deep friendship.
I may not be making any sense to a person who's not gone through this kind of a friendship. You might find me insane!
