Do you find it easy to make new friends?

How easily do you make new friends? When I was younger I found it really easy to make friends. As I've got older I seem to find it more difficult. It's not that I don't talk to people! I seem to have lots of people who I'm friendly with but not lots of friends that I socialise with. I think it's because I'm quite shy and wory that people wouldn't want to spend time with me. Anyone else have this problem? What do you do about it?

You know, we are so much the same! I think that's because when you were younger, you're not too much conscious about yourself not like now, that you're too conscious that people might not want being with you, because that's what I feel. I am a shy girl but I wasn't when I was a kid. When I became teenager, I become so shy and I always thought people might not like me.

Well less expect in friendship can help it grow better. Accepting them for what they are can help to grow better.

for me some people are very easy to be friends with some people are difficult to be friends with,because they don't talk too much ans they are shy

yes, sometimes i do find it easy to make friends, but most of the time i choose not to talk too much with people i see or i meet in a public place.

I am not at all good at socializing or making new friends.. I am a shy kind of a person and I am also not good in internet socializing. But I like attending to a gathering organized by any of my family members,relatives or closed friends,where I can come across many people who are very well known to me.I prefer keeping a low profile. I also find it very difficult to adjust with people having completely different mentality.When I was a kid,I used to make friend with people but now it is a bit difficult. Being social and adaptable to any kind of atmosphere is certainly a positive feature.It makes one more accessible and important among others.

I moved to a new town about a month ago and I haven't made any friends yet!! I'm really hoping to cause it's kinda lonely lol I stay at home with my kids and am pregnant so I would love to have someone to hang out with or just chat with on the phone! I try talking to the other parents at my daughters school and have talked to this one mom that lives in the same apartments that I do, but honestly I just haven't felt a connection with anyone. I know that sounds weird and it'a not like I'm looking for more than a friend but it's like I don't have much in common with anyone I have met recently! My boyfriend works alot so it's pretty much just me and the kiddos, and it is great because I love being a mom, but everyone needs friends right? lol I just don't know how to talk to people and make good friends I guess, I am really self-consious thought so maybe that has something to do with it.
