I found myself thinking a lot about a statement one of my friends had made a few days ago. I think its interesting how these days when ever I see my friends we always talk about the few random subjects that girls seem to discuss.
Tonight I found myself focusing on the different relationships…as..couples..boy and girl friends etc. around me in social places.
Whether it be that they seem to be so harmonious together or.. almost pulling at the strands of being so different they shouldn’t even be in the same room together.. Body language does seem to say a lot about how close they are with one another..
I wonder if NYC makes an exception though. People here are so touchy. As in .. they will meet, get a drink, go to a club, dance a little.. and before you know it its either the drunkenness or just the friskiness everyone seems to have in this city.
Whatever the case maybe it is interesting. But maybe its just the fact that i havnt seen enough around other cities to make a clear picture of what is ‘supposed’ to happen.
Are we supposed to be … interacting as people did decades ago? Uptight and formal? Or perhaps that is too formal. But at least we could slow things down a bit I think. Time moves way too fast, especially in a city environment. You meet, tens, of hundreds of people, so many its even hard to remember all their names straight..
Till you meet.. someone that stands out from all the rest of the general population.. movies seem to quote statements like… ‘they just seem to make a room brighter’ or some nonsense like that. When I do take the time… to actually analyze that statement… is it true though? People, ones that are close to you, always seem to perk up your spirits when you are alone. Being with familiar faces, and with ones that care about you . Its a heart warming feeling that really cant be compared.
All of my friends are so worried and pent up with frustration and anxiety that they are going to be alone for their life. When in reality.. what is really so bad about that. Being young and learning to be independent; exploring the world to find out what you do and dont like so when you do mature you can have a clear understanding of what drives you, makes you happy. Warms your soul .
Its quite enlightening.
