Recognition

“You click with people who think you’re funny”. 
Yes. If you want to be my friend in 2.5 seconds, just laugh at something I said that even I don’t think is that funny. But of course, it goes beyond that. You click with people who understand your intention when you speak, who complement your strangeness with their own flavour you so happen to like. And most importantly, I think, you click with people who value your mind.

Sometimes, you say things you’d only tell your closest friends to a person you’ve just met. You feel like you’ve known them forever. They feel familiar. They bring you a comfort you’ve known; because you see yourself in them. They are the things you’ve always loved, found fascinating. You know how to appreciate them, the parts of them you find in the people you love most. These are people who have accepted you, and so you are free to be who you are.

Seems to be reminiscent of: 

According to Greek mythology, humans were originally created with four legs, four arms, and a head with two faces. Fearing their power, Zeus split them apart, condemning them to spend their lives in search of their other half.
 – Plato
 
And this quote I love: 
“Art and love are the same thing. It’s the process of seeing yourself in things that are not you”. 
– Chuck Klosterman
