Will you tell me what these differing opinions are?
Do you feel it is important to have friends that disagree with you, to foster intellectual debate? Or would you rather surround yourself with people that think similar to you to avoid heated discussions and possibly hurt feelings amongst friends? Or do you prefer to stay away from certain topics in order to avoid those situations?
(I'm mostly referring to "hot button" issues in the area of religion, politics, race, etc. But if hair color is a heated debate topic for you and your friends, that's cool, too.)
