Meeting Someone New

It's funny how you meet people. Usually as strangers it the first awkward eye contact and nice smile with a uneasy hello or other greeting. Then once you spark up a conversation you can almost call each other long lost friends from Atlantis lol.

Me and Madea met a guy like that the other day. Even though he was selling cable he was nice and not aggressive. He listen and enjoyed our company as much as we enjoyed him. A really great guy!!

It's a shame that people nowadays can't be friendly like that anymore. Now everyone expects something in return, which to a point there's nothing wrong with that. However, it's just as nice enjoying someone's company and getting to know them and have a nice chat every once in awhile. Not saying that you need to be surrounded by a gang of people or your own personal entourage of protégés. You can have just as much fun with just one or two people and never think that 3's a crowd or be forced in a third wheel situation.

You can get along with people by talking about stuff—ANY STUFF!! And telling stories and giving feedback on intellectual topics and discuss many, many things. I think, well it's my belief, that's what makes being with people on a personal level so enjoyable. It makes you want to get back out there and meet new friends. Or at least that's how I feel about it lol.

Don't get me wrong I love my friends who are closest to me and care for me sincerely and genuinely. However the wishy washy friends—I can do and live without.

But your assignment for today, this week, the rest of this month and next month too—go out and meet someone new and get to know them, just spark up a conversation. Don't get discouraged if they don't want to talk at first. You tried your best and try again. The person that's happy to talk to you, trust me you'll be utterly surprised at how much fun and excitement you'll experience.
