I make friends by using a machine.

I like making friends. I need more friends though. /forever alone.

I THINK I might know what 1dash is talking about...maybe I'm reading too much into this, but...well as an example, one area where I lived had a lot of 1st and 2nd generation Vietnamese, in their own community within a community. They were very insular and protective, and my youthful impression was that it was hard to make friends with them.

Sometimes in types of very densely populated, insular communities within larger cities, where people of a specific ethnicity tend to rely on each other when surrounded by people of other ethnicities, it can require a bit of patience to have any chance of friendly interactions. Heck this is true with Russian, Indian, or Hasidic Jewish communities, too (among others, just using those three as random examples).

For that matter, I've lived in American/Canadian/Aussie expat communities in west Africa. It sometimes seems intimidating for local west Africans to make friends with us, because we tend to stick together in that sort of environment.

But when I started meeting lots of Asian kids (long-time Americans, 1st gen immigrants, exchange students, and everything in between) in high school and especially college, I had absolutely no problem making friends whatsoever.

And since that early experience, I've been to Japan, China, South Korea, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, and if you want to include it, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan (though that's more Iranian in culture)...and I've never felt like I was out in the cold. Even in winter.

I have a few Asian friends, but living in Japan and not speaking much Japanese is a challenge. You just have to step outside your comfort zone sometimes to make friends.

I'm Asian but I don't really enjoy hanging with many Asians at school maybe it's because I dislike their pop culture. I prefer being in a group that has variety. Nothing wrong with hanging with the same race either but it's just my personal preference.

You see this line I drew right here, don't bother stepping past it.

Hmmmmm honestly I seem to attract weird asian people as friends. None of which know I watch anime but, they do know I am into martial arts. However, there are some asian people who are just pain rude and not really fun to be around. Then again......there are people like that from all nationalities.

Because you think of their race first, and not who they are.
Therefore you can't truly understand them thus, not creating a attractive relationship.

Maybe because they are not nice people? Unlike other asians who are very nice and friendly. In other words, it's not because they are asian, it's because they are unsocial or mean.

I'm mean and unsocial, but I'm forgiven since I'm white man.

White men also takes over your village and rape your women.

I don't think it's hard to get along with them, it depends on you and on that Asian
