I'm a part time student at college and I work at a daycare. I technically have five friends. Two of them aren't my friend's anymore, one of them doesn't seem to want to be friends if he can't have more than that, the other is probably playing mind games with me and well the fifth one is actually a friend. We can't hang out allot though because she's busy with schoolwork and stuff. Plus she doesn't live near me. Though thatís not a problem. I want to make two more friends who I can talk to and hang and do stuff with but I don't know how to. I was in counseling for a while and just recently got out. My councellor and I agreed that I'm ok now and don't need ongoing therapy. She said if I get a big enough issue that I can't handle then give her a call. Just when I think things are going kool with me in terms of friendship, it's seemingly backfiring. *sigh* How can I make friends at my school? Do I just go and start conversations with random people? I don't know.

Do you talk to any of the other students in any of your classes about school work? If so, talk to them a little more about other things. Do you participate in any clubs, sports, etc.? If you do, that's a way of talking to people as well. Do you go out on weekends? If so, if you see someone (guy or girl) that you think you would like to talk to, just go over & strike up a talk w/them.

I hope I helped a little bit...good luck.

I've been told to just talk with as much confidence as possible. That doesn't mean you act like you're confident. You can still feel shy or nervous, but feel confident enough to know that there's no "right" or "wrong" way to talk. I used to worry about how to respond or if I was talking too little or too much, but now I figure that no one really knows; there's no formula. You just have to talk about things you want to talk about but make sure you pay attention to the other person, ask genuine questions, and support them by giving feedback and encouragement when necessary. I have just started becoming more comfortable with it and it is difficult, I think. But it can be done. Some people won't seem to respond well, but they probably have the same insecurities we all do about talking. Most people will be responsive if you talk and pay close attention to them, I notice. The key is to focus on the relationship you want to develop, not your apprehension. Make new friends at www.vois.com

I agree. Maybe join a study group or
club.

Best of Luck!

omg ihad the same problem at uni. the reason why is because i had a boyfriend who did the same course as me and we were well overdue to breakup so we bascially smothered each other and didn't get the opportunity to get out there and make uni friends. and now we have broken up and now im left with hardly any friends so i was thinking the same how do you make new friends? its like being a little kid again. being this age you shouldn't even think about it. it should just happen. but it has happened to us hasn't it. yeah you just have to go with the flow should eventually happen. im still stuck in this dilemna today. go figure

Yes, the trick is to be yourself. Figure out what things you like and concentrate on your likes and what you like to do in your life. People will see how genuine you are when you do that. I know it's hard because people like to test you out when you are new to a workplace or a new meet up.

Yes, being yourself is key. Making friends with the other people in your class is the easiest thing to do because you all have a common goal. Maybe helpa struggling student.

At home by ourselves none of us are shy, there is no reason to be in a crowd either, even though that nervous feeling might come it's just a feeling that will pass like all others. Feel free to do what comes naturally whatever the setting is and people will respond to your positive attitude.

making a friend is really very easy task but survive it is really very hard task
if you can survive it then you can definitely make friend
its my opinion .

Hey

For making friends, Fun tests, quizzes just go with one social networking site. Its awesome and fun community.

I met some great singles friends recently and also have had some great dating experiences. Profiles, pictures, tests, [url=http://www.okcupid.com/match?kw=personals]personals[/url], match rankings and a whole lot more from OKCupid.com

Enjoy !!
