" Keep your friends close. "
Caroline Forbes :: Bubbly, and tons of fun Caroline immediately warms up to Natalie, and makes haste to help Natalie feel a part of the group. Natalie considers Caroline to be her best friend.
Matt Donovan :: Warm, friendly Matt, he is quick to make Natalie feel welcomed and accepted within their little circle of friends.
Stefan Salvatore :: Stefan had a sort of safety net quality that Natalie couldn’t ignore. Being the first to welcome her to the town and letting her into his group of friends, and after giving Natalie a small ring (soaked in vervain of course) Natalie couldn’t help, but to like him.
Damon Salvatore :: With his bad boy quality, and cocky attitude, Natalie made a clear effort to try and steer away from him. But after seeing a glimpse of his protective side, she is determined to uncover more. So with some serious effort Damon eventually warms up to her, but that doesn’t mean that she trusts him whole heartedly.
Jeremy Gilbert :: Despite how troubled Jeremy was Natalie is still able to see the good in him, so she tries to warm up to him, and now they are pretty tight.
Side notes :: Though Natalie doesn't have a problem with neither Elena or Bonnie, they weren't exactly close either. So Natalie only considers the two girls more of an acquaintance and less like friends.
