I did, long time ago, turns out I’m my best friend ;)

I think anyone would hope the answer was yes.

Good point, if the answer is no you’re in for therapy lol

If I didn’t know it was me, I could jump right past like and actually love myself. I’m a swell guy.

On the other hand, if I did know it was me then that would be narcissism and I’m not that far gone. Yet.

I am a pretty big deal!

Yes when I’m alone. I must or I would fall into the valley of despair.

It took a while, but I am a staunch friend to myself these days.

Sure I could. But I’d start to find it creepy that we had that much in common. I mean, seriously, what can we teach each other that we don’t already both know? :^>

@Marina – excellent news!

cak's avatar

Yes, I could. I might find myself a bit left of center, but that’s okay.

marinelife's avatar

@cak Perfect. A little bit off center makes for the best friends, I have found.

I think I would bicker with myself a lot. Playfully, of course, but much more than normal.

I don’t think I would like myself very much only because I have known people eactly like me and we never get along.

jbfletcherfan's avatar

Yes, I could. I like myself. I think I have the tendancies that I look for in others. I’m very loyal to my friends, I’m good at keeping secrets & I don’t betray people. If you’re my friend, I’m a friend for life unless you do something to REALLY piss off. Then you’re history.

I think so. I have a lot of baggage, though…I might not be worth the drama!

I’m a pretty tough nut to crack, but well worth the effort. I’ve likied me for a very long time. I used to be my own secret admirer, but I caught myself, so now it’s out in the open!!

i don’t know. i mean, assuming that i met myself, as myself, i’m not sure. a lot of people tend to not like people exactly like them. not that they hate themselves, but that it’s usually more bearable – and not to mention more interesting – to befriend people different than you, at least in minor ways.
but you know, i’m not sure. if myself could get over the fact that my other self is pretty introverted in most public scenarios, i think myself would find that my other self is a rather nice girl, and if nothing else, has a good taste in music (;

bridold's avatar

I know I would. We’d have a lot in common. :)

Hibernate's avatar

I could but I’m not sure I’ll ever meet myself ^^v
