You know that old saying, birds of a feather flock together, right? It’s that old adage that you should judge a person’s character people by their close friends and who they associate themselves with. Well what happens when the birds flocking together sort of resemble a pack of vultures? Scientists call this the similarity breeds connection principle.
My buddy Ron said that he recently met the friends of the woman he has been dating. The young lady’s friends were extremely high-strung, high-maintenance gold-diggers (he used other descriptors, but I will stop there). These friends are very close to his woman and he figures there will be a lot of time spent with them.
Of course he is worried if his woman has a side that he hasn’t seen yet. A side that closely looks like what these women are. Is it fair to judge a woman by her close friends? Should he be worried about the woman he is so into now is actually just a representative?
Have you ever dated someone and clashed with their group of friends? What was it that made them not get along?
Do you pay close attention to the associates, friends, and business partners of the people you are dating? What, if anything, does it say about the person?
Are you similar to the people you are closely connected to?
