Ok, I know I've sunk kinda low for coming to the pit for this, but hell, why not?


So I'm starting highschool tuesday, and my friends right now aren't really good friends. They plan stuff behind my back sometimes, etc. etc. (and yes they are boys, kinda pathetic for them to gossip imo, but sadly ive had to stoop to that level to not be annoyed as much).

So anyway, that aside, I really want to meet new people and hopefuly make new close friends. My problem is I'm kinda shy and I do stutter which really makes it annoying (keep in mine my stuttering isn't that bad, but it does get in the way). I just need advice on how to meet new people and get to know them.


Thanks

P.S. Again I know I've stooped low coming here

On the first day, make sure you smile, but not in a creepy way. Make convo about stuff like "What school did you come from?" and stuff.

Just remember: life sucks after high school. Life just gets worse and worse.

But just talk to people, if a teacher lets you work in partners try and meet someone new, small talk, etc.

You'll be fine dude, just hang with the kids that have the same interests as you, find the muso groups and just chat.

I know for a fact that being yourself is all you need to do...there are people who aren't going to like your originality or like the idea of being 'different', just because they adhere to social norms like an Aussie's ass to a leather car seat in Summer..

Anyway. Just be yourself, there will be people who will warm to you, and will be your true friends. People who put on acts and follow stereotypes will end up lost in the world, because most of their 'friends' don't really care about them, only their own image or 'coolness'. Being yourself is the way to go. I know this because I'm a part of one of the "Reject" groups at my school...we're ourselves, we don't care what anyone says, and we're all B-A grade students, but we have a hell of a lot of fun together, and the best part is that these 'Reject' groups are bigger by far than any of the 'Popular' groups.

By "reject" and "being ourselves" I don't mean loners, or try-hard punks or something, we really don't do any of the stereotype bull****, we accept people for who they are and we're there for each other. Just be yourself man, Peace.

Thanks guys, might ne hard to get the balls to start talking but hell I'll get used to it. I'm thinking of trying to find a band to join which might help

you'll be fine.

try to talk to the people in your classes, you'll be spending 8 hours a day with them, so might as well socialize with your presented populous.

High school is such a diverse place that everyone meets new people that like the same things they do. Just be outgoing and try to find people who like the same things as you.

I remember being exactly like you when I started high school, having a stutter and being kind of nervous. I've lost that as I've grown up, but trust me, you'll meet dead on people who'll not care, so don't worry. Also, there'll be people just as nervous, if not more, than you.

Just don't try as hard as you possibly can to fit in, and don't care too much. Be yourself and just stick with your real mates.

If you don't like them, and they aren't helping you as friends should, leave them. You will meet other people, just be yourself and try to be friendly.

It sounds "guidance-councilor" but don't hang out with people you don't really like. Find your friends, your real friends, and I'm sure you will make many, and rise above the usual filth of highschool life.
Drink the sauce. Go on, it's okay. Just remember, I am the quest.

Nice to know you did fine having the same problem =)

I'm in the same situation TS, and i agree with pretty much every post in this thread
just be yourself, don't worry if people are dicks to you, because there are alot of assholes out there, but just stick with your real friends. don't be afraid to try new things because if you don't like it you don't have to do it again

no, you haven't stooped low

When I started high school was probably the best time for me to have made some friends. I've seen people who have made some very close friends from that time. I did have some trouble (and do so now), because I don't have a very loud voice in itself, and I happen to lose anything remotely articulate in oral speech. but I DID improve over the years (I hope). If anything, other people are inclinced to feel the way you do about high school too.


p.s. also, ditch your 'friends'. they don't seem very nice.

Well, you have A7X in your username. Plenty of kids in high school like them, hell, I see someone wearing their shirts almost everyday. If you see someone wearing an A7X shirt, go up and start a conversation around them. Or any band you like. Joining clubs doesn't hurt, either.
#32
You probably have this mentality that people don't want to talk to you, right? Well no one is really as big of a douche as you think. Just start talking to them like an ordinary person would when the opporunity arises and you'll eventually become friends.

It's kinda like prison, you have to fight some random person to assert your dominance.

Get lucky.
you know
like be in the bathroom masturbating while there's another guy in the stall next to you doing it too and you'll stop and be like..

"dude are you jerking off?"
he's like
"wait.. aren't YOU?"
and then "well.. ya.."
and the response "same..."
then lots of lols and instant BEST FRIENDS FOR LIFE.

I wish I could use the elevators in my school =0(.

But anyway,

Join a group/club. I met a bunch of awesome people in various clubs I was in. Talk to the people in your class, as the year goes on you'll all be talking to each other. Instant acquaintances! Be nice, be yourself, yadayadayada.

As corny as it is, be yourself.

People that share the same interests of you will ultimately like you because of them.

I think the main thing you must focus on, is some people are going to like you, and some people arn't. The thing is is, if your always in the backround and don't try talking to people, nobody will like you and nobody will hate you. Your the kid that is just "there". That is far worse then anything else so put yourself out there

Just don't do what I did and ruin your underclassman years by being shy.

This is my junior year and it took me until now to realize that the people that might not like or accept me are the same people I'd gladly punch in the face. I just stopped caring this year and I'm going all out. You should do the same, except start NOW.
