Everybody needs a friend. A GOOD one.
Everyone needs someone in their life who is the perfect friend match for them. Someone who shares the same interests and likes the same celebrities as you, but also a friend who you are so close with that you can read each other's minds.
Friends like these can be hard to find and if you're like me, you've gone through that time in your life when you start shedding your not-so-loyal people and start looking for those ride or die friends you have forever.
As you get older, it gets harder and harder to find these kinds of friends. Instead of being thrown together in school or sports, you have to figure out how to separate your colleagues at work from potential best friends... Sounds like a lot of unnecessary work, right? Of course it does!
Instead of forcing yourself to be friends with people from work that you can't really stand anyway (that'll be our little secret), you should be finding friends who share the same interests as you.
Maybe you like taking an early morning yoga class during the week or maybe your scene is more like checking out that newest art exhibit on the weekend after work. Whatever it is, chances are pretty high that you're going to talk to someone while you're out.
These instances don't always turn into finding your new best friend, but they can help you get out there and find your other friend half. The best, and easiest, way to finding that friend you never knew you needed is simply to keep being yourself.
If you follow your Zodiac sign, then you already know what kind of personality traits your sign possesses. But what you might NOT already know is that these personality traits can help you figure out what kind of friend you should have in your life.
Some of us have already found that friend, but for those of us who still need help, we're giving you some guidelines for the type of person you should be looking out for, according to your Zodiac sign.
