The comfort while being with strangers

There is some comfort while being with strangers. Have you experienced that?

You don’t have to open your inner self in front of them. So no worries on your hidden thoughts being stolen.

There is no obligations, no love. Only thing you need to ensure is to keep a safe distance. 😉

    True true true…. Also, amazingly, you can be yourself with them coz you don’t have the fear of losing them.

      I’ve had all sorts of random conversations while travelling. Once I was returning from vacation from Europe sitting on the plane next to a woman returning from a vacation in Africa and we talked the entire plane flight.

    I agree with your thought. It is our perception.
    And for thoughts, why stranger not even our friend can steal our inner thoughts.
    Sometimes we are comfortable, sometimes not. Depends on the situation, I think….

    There is nothing different only that if we keep faith and speak to anyone and see that person too in a different way things r better and sometimes why think also like that. It’s k don’t worry just relax and enjoy life nothing will happen. Have a great Sunday.

    This is so true.And the reason we don’t care what the stranger will think about us.

    Yes, I often have felt this. You can be carefree with strangers (albeit keeping the said distance) because you can absolutely be on your own without any pretension…

      Have you ever followed the idea of being “careful with strangers” and then turned them into a friend by accident?

    I don’t enjoy bars, so when I lived in China my social life revolved around English Corners. I would spend two hours at a time talking with strangers. Most of them asked the same sorts of questions, some of them asked more interesting ones. Some of them became my dear friends. It was a little like playing chess; the opening moves were always the same but some of these conservations became unique and I never forgot them.

    Oh yes! There certainly is some sought of good feeling. That time is the the only time when we can be completely ourselves and don’t really need to make impressions!

    I got reminded of the train friendship. It’s nice to talk to someone and know few things. Wonderful experience. Am an easy go lucky person who can talk to anyone very fast. So think it’s not hard to spend time with strangers. But my son is shy and he wouldn’t talk to anyone new.

      Well…Meena, you said it right..it’s in the trains we have that opportunity to talk to many strangers…and it’s so comfortable actually that we just become an open book..

    True… Sometimes it’s easy to get along with strangers as they won’t judge you, they won’t over interfere in your life and they act as good listeners.
