    I find it difficult to make friends

    because I simply don't know what to talk about with people. What are we supposed to talk about with people we've just met anyway? I wish there was a manual or something for this. Online, it's the same thing. Either I have to listen to people complain and talk about themselves...

    Not because I am awkward,

    but most people will just not make it into my group of friends because I usually find one kind of insufferable trait in every person that winds up being a deal-breaker.

    Why Is It Always About Dating?

    I just don't get why you couldn't ever find friends as easily as you can find dates. It's normal to meet new people if you're going to date them. Friends set friends up with dates. Not Friend dates! When you go online, even most "friend sites" turn out to be dating sites. I...

    I am very picky and if i am not very compatible

    with them then i just won't bother. I have always been an introvert, though i used to find much easier to make friends, after some incidents i became very quiet. Very rarely do i meet anyone who WANT to open up to, and be close friends with. Even after a while i still don't...

    It's been a long time

    since I've made a friend. There are acquaintances through school and a hobby I am pursuing, but that's it. There's no substance when I meet someone and it's really just superficial and small talk when I communicate with these individuals. I find it so hard to make new friends...

    I find it really hard to start conversations

    and I tend to avoid it because people tend to think I'm weird. I don't get why so many people say that you should smile at everyone you see because from my personal experience people think you're weird if you smile at them. I am so worried for my future. I am starting a new...

    I have two friends whom I've known

    for 8 years and they fe like family. But they moved to Spain and I can't make friends with anyone new IRL because they don't feel as easy to be around even though I know I shouldn't expect that from someone I just met.

    I can't make friends easily,

    it takes me a long time to get to know somebody and call him or her my friend. I have some friends but I'm still kind of lonely, I would like to meet new people but I find it hard.

    I either bore them or scare them away

    when I try to make friends. People at school think I'm crazy, but jokes on them, they wear uggs and socks with sandals.
