So back when i was younger i used to be really active....like really active and I used to speak with a lot of people and it was fun for me to get together and chat with sempais and kohais but now-a-days I only use thee site for just watching anime and for me I really want to use it for more than that. The truth of the matter is IDK how to do that anymore, I feel it'skinda awkward to just messege someone and say hi. IDK if it's awkward or more like its not what I do, something im not used to. I use fb and usually there is someone hmu and I respond i feel thats okay but I wasnt raised like that and i feel i would be a nuisance meseging. Now to my question: How can I get back and hang out with new Sempais and Kohais?

I've moved this over to the Advice, Info, Recommendations forum.

Different people manage it differently I guess. I mostly just hang out on the forums. For me that's a good starting point, but I"m also not especially interested in being very social here outside of the forums.

If you don't want to participate in topic-based discussions you could join in some of the threads in the "Chit Chat" forum -- they are more for unstructured conversation and banter, and also for folks looking specifically to get to know others and find prospective CR buddies.

I wish you well getting back into the swing of things socially here on CR.

Most people on here are pretty friendly and willing to buddy up and talk about anime or whatever. A lot of them are shy and awkward too, so you probably have to make the first move.
