    • What qualities do you value most in a friend?
      • #11 KittenWhiplash
        • I appear to be the kind of person that people feel free to tell their problems to, and expect assistance, whether it’s help moving or help paying bills or help finding or losing a mate, no matter how slightly we are acquainted. On the other hand, I have found that having a problem of my own can clear a room faster than a stink bomb. The ones that stay in the stinky room, those are friends.
        • ETA: While the above statement could be interpreted to mean I value sinus problems above all other attributes in a friend, that was not my intention
