    I find it odd how some of you members seem to be so close because I seem to be part of the community but don't seem to be making any specific friends, and don't really know how you guys manage to do it either :confused:
    Hmm why is that?? How do you guys make friends on TSR?
    We can be friends, but first you have to tell me who on TSR you have a crush on :teeth: Go ahead, don't be shy.

    Spend at least 2 months studying every aspect of human fitness, then go crazy and form a team with Adonis to slap every person that thinks they can bulk up while eating three McDonalds a day and show them how it's done.

    Join societies & post a lot in a specific forum. It depends really, I think if you come here to make friends you will. I don't post like that, and although i've posted a lot I don't "know" anyone. People probably recognise my name but I prefer to have some anonymity

    If you show your personality your more likely to make friends than if you withdraw yourself.

    Ignore people saying make nice posts etc. that's not a direct way of experiencing the social aspect of TSR. You have to become a sub, because people do this to essentially socialise. Even the "serious" threads of the backroom [sub area] is for socialising so imagine what the other bits are like. Either get riches somehow or pay £3.50. Luckily this time somebody randomly gave me a sub which is why I know about it, but that's unlikely to happen to you if you're new.
    Hm this whole 'subbing' thing is a mystery to me- what difference would it make? It always seems like the people who sub have existing friends already haha

    I know, I've already read that...
    it's just I don't get why people would do it...
    maybe they are genuinely asking the question rather than this perceived "trolling"??

    Yeahh it's a bit stupid, some people just like the attention that flares up around them when they post something that annoys everyone.

    I tend to post alot in 1 subforum (H+R, obv) and then sometimes get messages from girls who have seen a few of my posts and have found them particularly interesting or just love the sarcasm (true story). We then usually chat a bit in private message and then swap MSN details if we wanna chat more.

    Have made some real good friends that way (and previous girlfriends :P )

    i'd say join a society or two, become a PS helper, become a sub?
    basically just post a lot more with people in a certain forum or area and you'll begin to form a rapport an stuff

    The people I recognise on here are people from specific threads that I go on - for example, I recognise the Oxford people cause I spend most of my time in that sub-forum (and more specifically the offer holders chat thread). After a while I found a couple of them on facebook and got to know one or two through there.
