    Depends, if you’re still in school then you could always join a club or society and you’ll find people you have a similar interest too.
    Same outside of school as well join a gym,go to yoga classes or whatever you enjoy and you should start to make friends through these

    Confidence. Don't be afraid of going over to someone complete randomly and talking to them or engaging when someone is trying to make conversation with you. Spend more time with your acquaintances, get to know them better as you might just find you have more things in common than you thought.
    Additionally, join clubs and meet people with similar interests which allows you to have something to talk about as you try and break through to the friendship stage as it'll mean a lot less awkwardness.

    Im just the type of person whos always smiling and has that type of face but usually ppl dont mess with me cuz of the tough and stubborn attitude but trust me even if you are not confident you can still make friends. Try to find similar interest and hobbies, future plans/jobs

    I made my first friend in high school by saying we are going to be best friends and we did, although she actually really didn't like me when I said that 😂
