Finding and Keeping Good Friends

Finding and Keeping Good Friends Wendy Mason  is a Career Coach and Life Coach helping you to solve difficult problems at work and at home. Finding and keeping good friends has two parts to it What draws us to people What seals the friendship What draws us to someone? We meet lots of people in life but for most us very few become frends. These seem to be the things that draw into becoming friend with people. Shared interests and values We usually need to find we have something in common with people in order to become friend. This is usually in terms of the kinds of things we enjoy doing and what we believe to be important in life. If I am very interested in sports and you are very interested in, say, looking at paintings, then we may struggle even  to start a conversation that holds our interest. Likewise, if we believe completely different thing about what is important. Of course, our tastes may change over time and after the friendship is formed. S
