  • i will be your friend. I have no friends around me and not from lack of trying and have found a few on here.

  • Start out being friendly. Just say "Hi" and smile. Keep doing it regardless of the reaction. You don't have to stick around for a response. If you see someone needs help, offer a hand. Open a door for someone with an arm full of bags, in a wheelchair, or an older person. Just keep it up and eventually someone will respond. Go to the park with your child. Say Hi to other mothers. Compliment them on their childs clothing. Be friendly to the people at the supermarket, especially the workers, cashiers. They get to know you and converse with you. I had a customer years ago that never smiled or said anything to anyone. I started just by walking past her and saying "Hi, or Good morning". I didn't wait around for conversation. It didn't take long before she started saying "Hi" first. One day I asked "how are you today?" Then we gradually started talking. Pretty soon, she was talking to all the employees. She turned out to be real nice

  • I couldn't make friends until I started working when my son was a year and a half. Now he's almost three and still the only place I can ever make friends is when I'm working.
