    If I'm honest, I only have a couple of friends (no joke) and I love them but they have their lives and they have stuff they need to get in with.

    I really want to meet new people where I can go out with them, talk to them and just even be social.

    Please help, how do I make more friends?

    I kno it's not easy but u have to be very outgoing and confident. However we had a new girl this week n she was like that. but ppl thought she was overconfident n rude at times (quite a chatterbox). So it rlly depends on who u want to be friends with.

    Giving them compliments and stuff should help tho

    When you talk to people (or people talk to you) look really interested and enthusiastic. When people see how eager you are to listen, they'll feel more inclined to open up, and when they talk about themselves you can fins stuff you have in common with them and keep the ball rolling. I really enjoy listening to peoples stories, and I always learn something new. It helps to have that sort of mindset.

    Volunteer, look at your local library and see what activities, events are on, join meet up groups, join clubs out of interest.

    1) Relax, imagine you're just observing or there as a traveller lol.

    2) Smile, smiling in contagious.

    3) Be confident, respect yourself, work out, wear good clothes, feel good, focus on your passions, know you are a good person who treats people well, think positively, be proud of yourself, do things that make you happy, what things are you good at?

    4) Dress well, have good grooming, hairstyle, have good posture.

    5) Just say hi or hey to people in your vicinity, who cares if they don't say anything back?

    6) Ask how they are, how's everything, what made them choose this course, their plans for the future, their plans for the rest of the day, weekend, how was their weekend, what they will get up to, ask them about their hobbies, be charming.

    7) Be passionate about life

    8) Lighten up, have a laugh, laugh easily, be friendly, interested, relaxed.

    I'll be your friend .
