Found ancient e-mail today from back when I was 18
Hi there. I read through your id file more carefully, and I like
it a lot. You are a *very* open-minded person, which is wonderful to
see; not too many people are, I’m afraid. It’s also good to see how
much friends mean to you; so many individuals are concerned with finding
a life-long partner, they forget the importance of having friends too.”
It was a private response to a group post I made about “Why can’t we just walk up to someone and say ‘wanna be friends?” like we did in Kindergarten”.
I think it’s still a common problem, despite a seeming rise in acceptability of bromance.
