Unfortunately, I'm not too good at making friends (off-line) either. And, the older I get the less tolerance I have for people behaving stupidly. Still, I think the best thing that you can do is to try and find people that have some of your same interests. That will give you a basis for conversation. Other than that, just try to be friendly towards people (I guess). Like I said, I'm not so good with them either. Don't know how much this helps, but I hope it at least gives you something to think about.

In order to gain friends you must be one as well. You have to be a good friend to others. Do not pose as a friend, be one. Listening is one of the key factors in being a good friend. Listen to their life story, their aspirations, ambitions, and you'll not only be their friend but you'll know more about them and maybe learn something from them.
