I love that point in a friendship when you get what the other person’s style is - their “thing.” You see a knit jersey tie and think of them immediately; a type of weather, a bad movie, a woman’s outfit. You know, with absolute certainty, that your friend would enjoy this thing with you more than anyone else in the world. You feel closer in that moment of recognition, even if they’re not there.
Whenever I’m at my boyfriends parents house and his dad has company over his father always introduces me to them and adds “isn’t she so pretty?”It has been one of the greatest compliments ever. Like they have no choice to not say something back because they don’t wanna come off as rude. Ahg! It’s just so brilliant and flattering at the same time!
