Dating lessons we should apply for good friendships

You will find plenty of books and advisors on how to keep friendships.  We live in a culture obsessed with gathering wisdom about romance and less obsessed with improving other relationships.

Here are some of the points to be kept in mind to keep good friendships:

1.Dont chase anyone

One person chasing another shows the unevenness of a relationship. If the other person never initiates the first step, its no longer mutual. You should never have to convince a friend to spend time with you. You deserve significant others and friends who make you feel wanted.

2.Quit Scoring

If you keep a reserved account of your friend’s misdeeds with you, that means you keep a score of him/her. Such scoring may end up destroying relationships.

3.Be picky

Do not go for somebody just because they show interest in you. There must be so many people on earth who would love to socialise, chill and talk but at the same time not all of them become our friends. Similarly, one needs to be picky when it comes to friendship or any kind of relationships.

4.Dont bank on others for all of your emotional needs

Its not always good to depend on others for your emotional needs. It is best and equally important not to lose ourselves in our friends. Putting all of your stock into one person is not always a good idea so better keep it reserved for yourself too.
