As an intense person myself at times, I tend to attract others who are also intense. I have a friend who I’ve known since 2008 who fits the description of an intense individual. We met while doing a summer program together and it was amazing how well we got to know each other after 8 weeks of living together. Now, my friend is an awesome person and the fact that she has the title of “friend” is a testament to that fact. However, she’s a bit intense. When we hang out, the roles are somewhat reversed in that I take more of a caretaker, nurturing, “let’s not get arrested” role and she’s 100% genuine and impulsive living in the moment. She is not afraid to hide any of her emotions and she feels them quite strongly. Hanging out with her is ALWAYS an adventure and she’s great in small doses. It means that there is never a dull moment and that there are plenty of chances to have fun.
