I havent made a new friend since junior high and i am getting very lonely, I am not ugly, i do not smell, i am talkative, i smile and make eye contact... i just cant seem to make new friends and i dont know what im doing wrong

So pit do you make friends easily? and how do you approach getting to know new people?
#3
I don't even know. I don't consciously think "I need to make friends", it just happens.

I'm naturally attractive.


I am fairly attractive myself. girls tell me how cute i am all the time but i dont think thats an issue when trying to make guy friends...

EDIT: i make small talk with lots of new people through out the day, after that they never talk to me again...

Circumstance, usually.

I don't think I've personally been responsible for making new friends since I was about 5. It's just been making conversation with the people my current friends bring over to talk. This continued when switching between schools.

Off to university in September, and nobody I know is going. It'll be my test. To see if I can do it on my own.

Honestly though, I'll probably sit inside playing computer games for all of Fresher's Week.

talk to people..hang out with them outside of where you usually see them (like, hang out with people from work outside of work. dont just see school friends at school)

just act liek yourself
theres not really a method..

More often then not, friends don't happen on purpose.

If you're so talkative, you shouldn't have a problem making friends. Just start with small talk, or something that just about everyone can relate to. And definitely not any memes you find on the internet, m'kay? (i.e. So I herd u liek mudkipz?)

Just be nice to people, make a couple jokes here and there when they fit, and such.

(Important note: Do NOT over do trying to be funny.)

People that you naturally just 'click' with will become your friends.

Not that I'm any expert on the subject myself, but that's how it's always worked with me. >.>

When you are around someone new, say something funny about something that is going on around you. That usually starts up some pretty good conversation.

People aren't just going to walk up to you and automatically want to be friends. Talk to new people. Go do stuff where people gather.

Become fantastically rich, and then hire friends.

Stop doing that would be a good start. Don't wait for an invitation. Say "hey guys mind if I join you?" And sit down.
You're just shy man. Stop it.

talk to people in your classes. if they are talking about something you are interested in, join in. then, find them at lunch and as to sit with them.

I can't imagine someone being cruel enough to say no when you've already shown that you are interested in the same things as them, and that you're not a douche.

I'm interesting and attractive, so it's easy for me.

I usually meet people out shopping, or in clubs.

Word. Shyness is like jealousy: it will only make you miserable.

Maybe you are just not very fun to talk to. You shouldn't expect to be able to become friends with everyone.

I did that last year, I stood in front of the mirror and honestly asked myself if i looked cool...

im popular, people like me, they just dont want to be my friend... i guess that makes me unpopular actually

Well, that's no help. You gotta force yourself to be social, no one wants to hang around the lonely kid that sits by himself every day. He might be crazy or not interesting or something.

Just go up to a table you think you want to sit at, ask, 'Hey, mind if I sit here?' And if they say no for no good reason, they're dickholes you don't want to be around with in the first place.

Booo. Don't do this. Freshman year, no one has any friends because no one knows anyone, so everyone will be equally open to new friendships. Don't just hole yourself up in your room, mingle! And if you do stick to your room, at least keep your door open.
