It was the one in the anime section, people don't worry it was locked. Sorry, really sorry about that. Also the point of this thread is just to see people different opinions, alot of my friends have different ways of making friends. One of them made a friend out of me by hitting me all the time, yet he is very funny. However, as I promised, I will not put up anymore threads if they trouble people, only once in a while. I always kept my promises, you will not see another thread of mine for awhile, so please forgive me. I do not like upseting people. I just kinda wanted to meet different people, there are so many different ones in the world and everyone think differently. I like talking to them and getting to know them, I have to catch up with all my friends and get to know as well. Since I was busy for a while, I can finally have time to talk to all of them. So I just approved some and finally have a chance to chat and see how they are. Communcation is one of the best things a human has, so it's better to use it to the max and enjoy yourself. Having a friend is a great gift, and fun to hang out with.

if want to be friends with someone i just go up and say "wanna be friends?". usually works otherwise i get slapped.

I don't know, I'm very shy in real life and vice versa online. I don't know, I don't find friends, friends find me..I hope that makes sense.

I posted this in the other thread, but since this is the one that remains popular (note the mods plainly ignored me) I'll post it again here.

I recommend the popular book "How to Win Friends and Influence People" by Dale Carnagie. Its mostly common sense, but good tips to abide by. Basically the book has sections like, 6 ways to do this or that, each of which is a chapter.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/How_to_Win_Friends_and_Influence_People

"Fundamental Techniques for Handling People:

* Don't criticize, condemn or complain.
* Give people a feeling of importance; praise the good parts of them.
* Get the other person to want to do what you want them to by arousing their desires.

Six Ways to Make People Like You:

* Be genuinely interested in other people.
* Smile.
* Remember and use people's names.
* Encourage others to talk about themselves and listen to them.
* Discuss what the other person is interested in.
* Make the other person feel important.

Twelve Ways to Win People to Your Way of Thinking:

* Avoid arguments.
* Show respect for the other person's opinions. Never tell someone they are wrong.
* If you're wrong, admit it quickly and emphatically.
* Begin in a friendly way.
* Start with questions the other person will answer yes to.
* Let the other person do the talking.
* Let the other person feel the idea is his/hers.
* Try honestly to see things from the other person's point of view.
* Sympathize with the other person.
* Appeal to noble motives.
* Dramatize your ideas.
* Throw down a challenge.

Nine Ways to Change People Without Giving Offense or Arousing Resentment:

* Begin with praise and honest appreciation.
* Call attention to other people's mistakes indirectly.
* Talk about your own mistakes first.
* Ask questions instead of giving direct orders.
* Let the other person save face.
* Praise every improvement.
* Give them a fine reputation to live up to.
* Encourage them by making their faults seem easy to correct.
* Make the other person happy about doing what you suggest."

i need help in this deparment... so plz post

way i think of it, is just be urself. (but im normally a secluded person cus i think ALOT by myself, which is my true nature) (i have too much freetime on my hands dont i?)

anywho, yeah. as many people have said before: be yourself, better for people to like you for you rather than like someone your not. (probably a bad corny quote, and proabably typed wrong)

ofcourse, this is coming from a person who has no friends what so ever
(for those who think im an attention whore, well it's true...not that im an attention whore but that i dont have friends)

you know what i find funny, this thread was mostly responded by people who dont have to many friends (no this is not an insult)

off-topic: we need sigs... since bandwith has cleared up. (not that i have picture to put on it, rather some thoughts)
