    I've made new friends at my college but I have the feeling they're not very comfortable around me, I'm not scary or anything I think it's just cause they don't know me very well, I've told them a lot about myself and they've told me stuff about themselves but does anyone have any tips on what I can do to improve the friendships?

    Ask them some basic questions like birthdays, zodiac signs, favourite colours, etc etc etc while you're hanging out - or for a less childish approach- their favourite bands, movies, music genre, subjects even - and if you've got a subject or anything common, build up on that - show that you're just as passionate so that the other person knows that you're genuine and really care for their choices and opinions on said subject.
    Other than that, you can talk about hobbies games etc or really anything - if you like cooking, give'em a little something as a treat - everybody loves a little gift of appreciation, if they're nice enough they'll give you one in return and vice versa - this builds trust and friendship ^_^
    I might sounds cheesy or kiddish but that's how I managed to go from demure, frail, unapproachable introvert to a slightly more talkative and *noticed* person :| Hope this helps even a teeny bit!
