“Can I be your friend?”
Okay hold on and stop right there. Let me explain you my personal opinions on this.
this is so important guys.
I know better than anyone that it can be scary to put yourself out there and start building up a relationship with someone. But you need to understand the building part is the important key part.
You can’t skip from A to Z.
I’ve let people do that before, I’ve trusted people who have literally just dropped “lets be friends” in my askbox. And it’s left me with some pretty terrible (and traumatic) experiences.
everything between A to Z is trust building.
We need the trust. It’s not easy to do but I’m sorry without the trust it’s not going to work.
