I think you could take part in some school activities or social activities you are interested in. That will help you make more friends and improve your sociablities. And of course, the most important is that you must learn to be loyal to your friends anytime and anytime. Wish you good luck!

first and foremost is to be a friend toyourself and if you can do that then you be a friend to anyone.

I don't think people are ashamed by the people around them, I just think in this present day it is harder to make friends as people are so busy in their own lives juggling work and family. I found it really easy making friends in the country town (Longreach) as there was always events on such as balls, Rodeos and races and people had to make friends there as there was nothing else to do. I loved my social life in Longreach. Now I am back living on the Sunny Coast, been back here for about 8 months and I have made a few friends through work and I have reunited with old friends from facebook which is escellent as I have caught up with them after 20 years I went and visited them. I think the best way to make friends is to join sporting groups or clubs that way you are meeting people with similar interests to you. But if you don't get out and about I think it is really hard to make friends.

Hello dear julyteen. I think that it is important for one to take part in social activities to make friends with people and also we cannot ignore the basic factor, namely, we need to have a very good personality, which helps us to have more friends. An active character helps a lot. One who is shy or feels embarrassed will find it not so easy for him to make as many friends as he wishes. Thanks.

I don't make friends easily off line because I prefer my own company, I am not sociable and I feel uncomfortable talking to strangers, I don't have the self-esteem or confidence to make friends and I don't go out to socialize, I am more a loner, I guess if you want to make the friends you make the effort to go out more and take part in leisure pursuits and shared interests, like clubs which are good to make new friends.

The first thing I would suggest would be to go out to where people are at. It might just be a trip to the grocery store or going to church. Just go somewhere there are people. If you want to help them, go with them or introduce them to some of your friends. Join a sports activity or anything else where you can be around people.
