  • You can't force anyone to like anything. Everyone has their own likes and dislikes:)

  • I'm sure you are not interested in everything they are either. That's what makes life less boring.

  • No, you can't force anyone to do anything. Would you want friends that tried to force you to like what they do?? I'd guess not!

  • No, everyone has their own likes and interest. You can force someone to like the same things you do. If the role was reversed how would you feel?

  • No, just as you would hate to be forced to learn about something that doesn't interest you.
    You would be turned off if your friend said "No, I'm going to teach you about sewing whether you like it or not." You would start to resent them if they kept pushing it on you. Don't be a bully and allow them to come to you IF they want to learn about your interests.

  • Why would anyone want to force a friend to do anything? You're totally not grasping the concept of friendship.
