Common and Different Interests

It is good to share interests. But you and your friend do not need to be exactly the same. One survey respondent told us: “One of my longest friendships started in elementary school and was maintained by common interests and loyalty.  I made friends after high school because I was in a program where I was surrounded by peers that had the same interests and goals as me.” Another young person from British Columbia said, “It is good to have the same interests. But you can learn from your friends too. One of my friends has a lot of the same interests as me, but she bakes too—like I wish I could. My mom thinks she’s absolutely awesome too.”
