How do you make friends?
forum Advice
Somewhere in the last few years I forgot how to form meaningful relationships. Tired of feeling sorry for myself so I’ve tried to make friends but I just can’t seem to connect with people anymore. Advice?

You're in a social networking area right now, so use it. There's community on the forum centred on the General Discussion area- just drop into the threads and get to know people.

"Hi my name is Victoria and I just moved here and I don't know anyone, it's nice to meet you."

I'm not shy though.

I usually just hang around friends of preexisting friends and attach myself to whoever doesn't act like they hate or fear me. That's how my two best friends became my best friends.

meaningfulness is an illusion, what makes an old school freind more imporant that the M F you met 3 weeks ago at burgerking/? nothing, you just have to go with the flow.

I have the same issue....

finding actual good friends who are actually loyal or honest or stick around and what not....people I tend to meet nowadays tend to be total flakes/emotional tourists. People are bogus. That’s why I’m back here...lmaooo.

I have no idea. Lol

It’s very difficult to do as you get older. Work and any type of social club are pretty good sources. You have to pay for the clubs and go to work often for those to pan out though...

Maybe not what you had in mind, but I'm always in the market for a new true friend. Message me if you want, as long as you are over 19. I work as a teacher, and don't want to accidentally contact any of my students!

It's hard to make meaningful friendships. TBH I'm still trying. I think it's equal parts effort though between humans. One can't put forth all the effort.

MrJAnthropy
This isn't quite my specialty, but here's my opinion:

I figure the best way to make a meaningful friendship would be to branch out and speak with others, find a topic that interests the both of you, and continue on that topic. That or test the waters a little and see if you become interested in something the other party likes.

Just like a relationship, a friendship starts with communication. It also varies on what type of friends you'd like to have. Those that you find on social media, sites like this, and those in person can vary significantly.

If there's any specific questions you'd like my opinion on, then feel free to ask, but for such a general question, that's the best opinion I have for you.

Take some clay. Mold a face and a body out of it. Name it. Talk to it. Bingo. You just made friends.

Quit bragging about your girlfriend, Jason.

It is hard to connect when you're out and about and just try to initiate with random people, but it is good practice. Otherwise social networking sites with groups based on things that interest you may be a good alternative.

Depends on who u call a friend. If u need a company to drink bear or just go out, it can be anyone. But if you are looking for someone to share your interests and thoughts just go to the place you can find such people. Like painting - find a community
