    Being myself would mean sitting in the back of the room without saying a word

    I literally talk to random people and we end up becoming friends(well they just love me).


    Just be yourself!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Honestly, if you act like someone you aren't then how can you have a proper connection(well not really, just ignore this *****y talk that I'm saying right now). You obviously start by introducing yourself and the conservation generally proceeds from there.

    Don't worry, hopefully everything will be fine! Btw, we are friends now

    No one in particular. I just want to learn social skills before I go uni.

    You normally say hello and give each others names. Then you stalk them on FB, find out as many interests they have and then you pretend that you're so similar that you have to be friends.

    It can actually be ****ing hard. Only seems to get harder to make close friends as you get older.

    A harsh reality that is not often talked about.

    That's creepy AF and it won't work (not that you're serious).
