Sometimes when you meet someone, there is instant sympathy between you and that person. Le courant passe (the electric current is flowing).
It is difficult to explain why…
Human chemistry is a mysterious thing, a no man’s land full of unseen obstacles and hidden traps. But when le courant passe, it is beautiful. Attractiveness has nothing well… little to do with physical attributes. Charm, the quality that makes you like someone, is a more likely reason.
The first trump card of an attractive person is a firm handshake. It is very important. It will determine (at least for me) if you will like that person or not. Personally, I think well of a firm and square one… A limp handshake, on the other hand, flaccid fingers offered somewhat reluctantly, makes me feel uncomfortable.
A winning smile and an easygoing attitude also goes a long way to make you “une personne sympathique. »
Sometimes you know and sometimes you don’t know why you like somebody. But if you are lucky enough to like somebody and be liked back, it can be the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
Friends are very important, even indispensable; their main purpose is to keep you afloat, even-keeled. Their job is to bail out water when your boat is sinking, or celebrate your good fortune with you. Without friends, life would be unbearable.
“Sometimes talking to your best friend is the only therapy you need.”
You can find friends in the most improbable places: in grammar school, in prison, on the battlefield or even on the pétanque court.
That is why belonging to a club is so important. When marital bliss turns stormy, you can get out of the house and find solace with like-minded people. And it is easier to make friends with pétanque partners than with total strangers.
Friendship is not a big thing; it’s a million of little things.
“Good friends will mourn your death; best friends will come and clean your computer history immediately after you die.”
You don’t collect friends. Quantity is not what counts; it is the quality that matters. It is far better to have 2 or 3 true blue friends than a posse of fair-weather hangers-on.
So, if you feel blue, unloved, come to the field and strike a friendship with somebody. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
