Unfortunately I'm going to have to disagree with you. Treating people the way in which you wish to be treated " “do unto others as you would have them do unto you" " only stands up to testimony with strangers and colleagues, not friends or trying to make friends. From experience, it doesn't work and you get prayed upon, without any means of reciprocation. People don't "slowly they will pick up on it and should give you ‘a taste of your own medicine’.", they are either friends or not wanting to be. Obviously this depends on your definition of friends, but for me, this should be more colleagues or people with whom you may be acquainted, by which I mean on occasion perhaps once or twice a week. Friendships only work if it's immediate, too many people become hung up on who the person could be for them both in platonic and romantic relationships rather than who they are. Which is something I have learnt the hard way.
