I want to like her and she wants to like me

So, i have this friend(more like a friend of a friend) and we kind of clash sometimes. We think the same way on many issues, but our approaches to everything is so different and sometimes it causes conflict. It is though, I want to like her and she wants to like me, but we just kind of can't come together. Who knows if that made any sense. LOL. I am better friends with people whom I totally disagree with on 50% of my parenting beliefs, yet her and I are probably more 90% in closeness. I would say that maybe we are too much alike, but then I think no because the friend we share in common is close in beliefs to us too. I don't know what it is. I can't pinpoint it and I bet she feels the same way. I have tons of respect for her and wish her nothing but the best, but i just don't see us ever being "tight" and "on paper" we should be.

  1. I know what you mean! I have a friend I'm the same way with. We've got very similar beliefs, even though sometimes we clash of some subjects, and we've been friends for so long, and she's always there for me when I need help, and I try to always be there for her too, but there's just ... something ... somehow ... keeping us from being really besties close. It bugs me because I don't know what it is, how to fix it, or if I should just leave it alone and enjoy the friendship the way it is. Hmmmmm....
