why can't we be friends?
do you remember how easy it was to make friends when you were in the third grade? all you had to do was walk up to someone and say "Hey do you want to be friends?"
About a month ago I met two guys at the bar while I was buying a drink. I overheard them speaking Italian and asked which city they were from. We got to talking and I learned that they also live in my neighborhood, Astoria. I was like, "omg, amazing. I could practice my italian with you guys and we could ride bikes together and explore Astoria." I seriously just wanted a friendship. But it doesn't happen that way does it? You can't just meet people at a bar and say, "Hey, you're really cool, do you wanna be friends?" Why is that?
