From your story it sounds like what happened is you both slowly trusted each other with progressively personal information and respected one another along the way. You have a very special friendship with him.I dont think you're terrible at making friends, but its definitely a skill that can be improved for anyone. If you want to talk about it sometime I'm happy to share anything I know. I used to be really shy and had a lot of trouble making new friends but then I figured some things out and it's become easier.
Pistolpete for the win. I fully agree with this. At least this is what works for me. Vulnerability first.
Thank you sir for the MHO

I appreciate that. Creating that kind of space though is a skill well worth learning in my opinion.
What do you mean nobody is safe?
Question isn't about location. It's about the atmosphere.
What's a talking stick? Like you only talk when you're holding the stick?
yes that's exactly right,
How would someone know if you're going to allow it or not before they've taken the risk?
What's ridiculous about making someone feel safe?
I was talking about eliminating idiotic new terms like "safe space"... not about making someone feel unsafe.
Still not sure what you mean. What's idiotic about it?
Just the fact that it's another one of those newly made-up PC terms, that the Left seems to like so much. I'm sure that we can suggest talking and acting in a kind and friendly way to others, without having to resort to using new-fangled words, terms and phrases.
I've never heard the term used in a political context. I dont think there's anything ridiculous about the term at all. Actually it's a very direct way of communicating the point I was making. So I will not be removing it from my vocabulary. I appreciate your input though.
In my experience, yes. Yes there is.
