I've been using CR since last August and I've been pretty lonely on here since then. I have no idea how you make friends on a forum, so if you would like to be my friend that would be great!

So, hello everyone!

I think I may have found the source of your loneliness: no one knows about you since you don't really say anything.

Come, and I shall lead you to the promised land.

Many friends to be had there.

Hi BlueOni! I saw your name as the most recent reply and damned if I wasn't wondering if you weren't leading him astray over there.

Hi Nishi! If you like random banter with a group of mixed personalities who somehow bonded but are also cool with new kids, please do visit that thread BlueOni linked to. It's kind of crazy and mostly fun, and while I don't post there a lot, I do occasionally lurk.

I agree that to get noticed here, posting in the forums is a good strategy. Eventually folks who see you posting and that you have forum conversations with may become buddies, exchange PMs, invite you to groups if that's their thing and your thing, or just start interacting more with you on the forums.

Some comment areas may get you noticed too if you post a lot on the same shows regularly and there are other regulars there too, but since there is no way to notify folks automatically by replying in comments and because they are more for dropping comments and leaving than for sustaining conversations, they probably aren't as effective at building connections.

Here are a couple of other links to threads you might want to poke your head into, but please also join in on any others that have topics that interest you.

To let others know you're open to new CR buddies: /forumtopic-835475/the-fraaaandship-thread
General Chat: /forumtopic-833991/chat-with-everybody
Find Anime show discussion threads for current/recent shows: /forumtopic-804615/show-discussion-index (This one is not for actually chatting in, but the opening post provides a list (with links) of the active forum threads for the current and past season shows.

Post enough on the forums and people will probably start to recognize your name a bit. I don't know about friendships though, I have plenty IRL and only come here to discuss anime *shrug* There is also a subsect of users who while away their days guest book flirting...but that's definately not my cup of tea.

The devil pays me by commission, so I try to rack up as many souls as I can.

Be more active in the forums, join some groups. I'm sure if you do, you will find people with similar taste in anime and other things.

I used to be active with the night owls but we died off. I've been feeling the same way recently. Send me a PM, ask me random questions, I'll talk with you!

My only problem is that I'm not exactly funny, and or one for debate. Most people I see on forums and stuff are funny and debate about things. I'm always (Believe it or not) to shy to post in a thread.

Just reading over that makes me seem hopeless. I'll go and try to make some friends though.

Address people more directly, quote them if you agree/disagree with their opinion, use PM if you dare if anyone is of interest to you, be generous with with your guest passes if you have them (share the CR love), just get out there.

I don't know why you're lonely. Is there a specific kind of interaction that you are looking for online that is not available in real life (serious question)?

I'm not funny either and I don't like debating online, but I don't feel lonely. I've always been an outsider IRL so not being acknowledged doesn't bother me.

Even the most deadpan person in the world can play the straight man/woman/other. Just keep saying "Who's on first?" and we'll do the rest.
