How do you gain friendships..

So i have been on this site now i believe two day's, i absolutely love the variety of thing's to do on here. I know one thing is to make friends, meet mom's, etc.. But all i've really beeen able to do is join in on post's, answer's, question's, games.. I have requested a few people to be my friend in hopes to find some sort of connection between us, but so far i seem to just be only wondering around the site.. What's the best approach to all of this?

  • It's a little easier you if you SPECIFICALLY look up something you are interested in. For example: Let's say you like to read well you can join the Cafemom Book Club but there are over 1000 members in that group. But let's say you like to read Dan Brown specifically, well then you have a greater chance of finding a smaller, more intimate group with your same interest. That's what I did and and within a week I had friends. Now it's 3 years later and I have made several cafemom friends! Not saying to give up on the other groups...but also join groups with specific interests. Good luck and you'll find friends! :)

  • You get to know ppl through Answers or games and then send a query. I have found it takes awhile to find others with the same interests.

  • I have been on here for a while now and I have not made real friends. However this site is good for support and advice when you need it.

  • It takes awhile. Longer than two days to make friends, just like in real life. Find some groups that interest you, then post and reply, and you'll find some friends.
