how do you make new friends here?

When I see a discussion or response from a person that I think is good, I will go to that person's profile to view the discussion questions that person has created. Then when I see that there are a lot of discussions that I would response to, I start responding. If that person is online, he or she will realize that I am going through their discussions and responding a lot. Then, that person will request friends. However, if the person is not online, when I am done going through their questions or about to log off the computer, I will request friendship with that person. Then, I can come back to finish answering and that person I requested friendship with will realize that I am interested in friendship because I responded to a bunch of their discussions. I have never understood why a person will request friendship when that person has never responded to the other's discussions. Why would that person want to become my friend of he or she is not interested in my discussions enough to respond to them? So, if I get a request, I also look to see if that person responded...because like I said, responding shows real interest. :) Friends hre should be people you get along with and enjoy reading their discussions AND responses. It should not be a popularity contest like I have seen some have over 800 friends.

What are you mainly interested in and what do you want to get information from? Then go to those interests and select as many from those groups. So if you love sports, rock music, travel, and Jesus Christ, you would select from those groups first, then go to the next interest, lets say, from your home country, etc. By doing this, you will not be deleting members. If someone out of the blue wants to be a friend, accept them even if they hate what you are interested in, because then you already got people to write and talk to.

When you respond to a discussion, look through other people's responses and if you like what they have to say, ask them to be your friend. It's a good way to get some posts to your questions too. I always try and answer my friends questions, if I know or have an answer to them.
