I understand what you're saying and Im not knocking it, but consider this: my best friend is an outgoing partier who was a humanities major  and Im a quiet introverted stem major who likes to play it "safe". We're interested in different shows, books, guys, clothing you name it. I love her though. I feel like we help each other grow. You don't have to be exactly the same as a fried to respect each others personalities and interests. Requiring things like a friend can't have a man just seems like you'll be missing out on some great possible friendships. Not saying that common interests aren't important, they are. but not a clone.

Most people don't share my aesthetic, on bhm or just in general. That's just fact.

i mean if you were to look at at superficially we have nothing in common



But I'm sure you guys have important things in common...like you like different genders...but at the core you both believe in romantic attachment/relationships. Or you clearly care about intelligence/education...I'm sure she is not a high school dropout who can't string a paragraph together and has no plans for her life.

Convos like this make me scared to ever leave New York

Brooklyn is the home of the black weirdo. My homegirl hardbody wears the same outfit every day. She washes it every night but she wears it every single day. She wears no makeup and cut her hair bc she's too lazy to maintain it. We're totally different and hardly share any interests but thank God she loves me anyway.

just get to know a wide array of people


Lol, that's exactly the problem...my definition of dressing nicely doesn't match other people's.

Women on this very board constantly opine about how they only chill with other "bad bitches", all their friends are cute, they and their friends are always put together (makeup, weave, perfect outfit, designer bag, 5 in heels, etc). So many times posters have stated how every women needs at least a little makeup or she doesn't look "put together", "sophisticated", "like a lady", "grown", etc. That men and women won't take you seriously if you don't at least put it in some "effort" where effort=makeup, hair, nails done, dressed like a style blogger or reality star.

I personally can't be friends with people with those beliefs...not because I'm better than them...but because it wouldn't be fun for me to be constantly judged by a friend...or have that person feel embarrassed or uncomfortable to be seen with me.

Truuuthhhhh ....im experiencing this now lool
