S/O, How and where do you make friends?

Most of my friends I have meet in real life. Some of from my son being friends with another child and after meeting the mom and spending time together, we became friends. I have met other friends by doing a hobby and meeting people that way. On here, there is a person or two who I do consider my friend even though we have not physically met. We have talked and gotten to know each other and share similar interests. What I don't do is go up to someone and ask them to be my friend.

  • I've met my friends through various community events, work etc.
    I'm not that desperate to blantly ask someone to be my friend. Sounds desperate when someone does this.

  • 80% of my friends are people i grew up with and/or went to highschool with (lived in a different city at that time), the others are past coworkers or other moms ive met at the playground, school, etc.

  • All the friends I have have been friends with me for a very long time, I keep in touch with all of them through FB, or via phone, the new ones I have made has been through the gym I go to everyday, but it doesn't go outside of the gym most of the times....I am lucky to have made friends throughout my life and keeping them for life.....

  • Hmm coffee/playdates, classes I take, through other friends I have. You know real life interactions,, not by advertising on the internet

  • I have a REALLY hard time making new friends. I never want to seem needy or weird so I rarely talk to people unless I see them a lot and even then it's hard for me
    I have some people I talk to at the zumba studio-but I see them a few times a week since I'm there like every day
    otehr than that-my friends are mostly people I hung out with in my late teens/early 20's. None are in my state, we keep in touch mostly through FB- though I see a few of them here or there on trips to Phoenix or California

  • My closest friends are my sisters. I'm still in touch with my friends from high school, but I rarely see them. We all have families of our own and we live pretty far from each other. I haven't actually made any friends where we are now. I suck at it, and there isn't many places to actually meet people either.

  • Some of my friends I met at church, some when I was in college. I find it hard to strike up real life conversations with people I don't know, especially moms at the park or preschool, so I don't meet many friends that way.
