Ask common questions, don't go all "how do u like the weather" on them.

Example

Me: Hey
You: Hi
-opening-
idk, think of something lolz

-questions-
So, did you see [insert movie]

If yes, continue with that. if no, say you should, reasons why, favorite parts, try not to spoil it though lolz.

After that, you either stare, or walk away, or continue talking about something else.

Also, assuming your friends have other friends, hang out with your friend's while they are hanging out with other friends, ???, more friends.

I don't get out much believe it or not ...


I also live in Atlanta Georgia where there are a lot of black people... not saying all black people act this way but... some black people are fucking mean T_T and ignore me when I try to talk to them... so yeah its hard to make friends for me I guess...


Also what if she says no she didn't see the movie wtf am I supposed to say?

Method #2
Make friends at the ATM?!?!

Method #3
If you wanna make good quality friends, you need to make sure that they are genuienly interested in what you are. So say you are into "football" walk up to someone and just say, "hey you see that football game last week" and if they say no, ask they if theyy watch football. If they say no, punch them. JK. Just say what other kinds of sports you like, then just let them talk.

**mostly sports works the best on guys** good luck. XD

Now that's a problem. Short & Skinny & Not Fit. Especially in atlanta (took a vacation there, it wasn't really that bad, at least it was better than where I live near atm (living in the suburbs, but the city :eek:h:). If your a gamer hang out with gamers, there's always something to talk about when it comes to gaming. Also, just fit lolz, you won't get anywhere being short and skinny for the rest of your life, atleast be short & skinny, and fit.

No one likes to talk about gaming.... its like that one thing you don't talk about at my school

Asian, short, skinny, not fit :curt: now i know why this thread is even here.

/End-being an ass

All the more reason for you to get fit, you don't want to go around high school getting punked around lol. How much can you bench?

just be yourself.
you don't need friends. you just need yourself. :)
if you like to be like you are, it's fine. you don't have to chance your way in life.

your life just started and it's coming very difficult and fun :)
i like to be alone. yes. i have girl friend. and i like to be with him.
but my friends are 600 miles away. i haven't seen them about 6 months :)

it's just, i like to alone and i do what i want. i want to see things what i want.
i want to just play games, watch movies/series. it's like fantasy world. :)

but some people needs friends. but you have time to make those friends in future.
no any rush. i think there is same kind of people here in TheBotNet like you are.

it's like we are Online Friends :) heh

The easiest thing I could say is, hang out with YOUR friends, and find some way to get them to invite THEIR friends. Thats how I met most of the people I talk to now.
It gets easy after a while. And being a freshman, you'll make friends soon.

And imo, Lawliet gave the best advice.

I don't like to be alone just I want to be with other people but other people don't want to be around me..

Its not that im ugly or anything... I just look like a kid

How am I supposed to overcome my shyness and nervousness?

That's a rough one, usually I would suggest coming up with some random story to just break into to start a conversation but in ATL you're likely to be shot if you do that. Try some nerdy venues maybe? Sorry you live in one of the few cities that is just realllllly unfriendly lol

I have no physical problems but it seems I can't get fit. I weight 74 pounds and It is really hard for me to gain weight. I guess I must have a very high metabolism or something.

I can't break out in some random story to start a conversation..... with a stranger.... they would think im wierd

Hey, i had the same troubles all through primary school and i was bullied for years but things changed in high school im in year ten now.

If you dont realise, friends arn't everything it's sure nice to have somone to talk to and somone to be arround but maybe your self esteem needs work before you get more friends, are you happy with who you are, or do you want to be something else?
I had really bad self esteem untill i started doing kung fu, i dont have a ton of friends right now but i mean fuck everyone, i could smash them anyway stick with your true friends, and if your having fun others will join you.
