I'm close friends with someone who has other friends. I don't have any friends other than her. She spends time with me when she isn't with her other friends or busy with work. It feels weirds sometimes. She once mentioned to me that I should try and make friends with other people. Yet I'll feel awkward trying to make friends with people who already have their own set of friends. I can't really explain it. I met some of her other friends and they seem like cool people. But it feels weird.

Does anyone have that one good friend who has other friends? Have you met your friend's other friends before? I'm pretty sure if I didn't meet that friend in college then I wouldn't have any friends at all.

I don't want her to stop spending time with her other friends. What I'm trying to get at is that I want to make my own friends but I will feel terrible?

What do you think?

Most best friends I had in my life had other friends and it annoyed me too, because I'm more of the type that wants to have one or two deep friendship instead of having lots of friends that I don't care much about. But it seems that most people don't think that way.

My suggestion is too still try to find others friends, and once it happens, your awkward feeling will most likely dissapear and you'll probably understand your best friend a little better because of that.

As for how to make friends, I'm not that good at it but a thing that helps me meeting people is to go to events that interest me, like music concerts, anime cons and sports events. Volunteering in such events is also a really nice experience that can allow you to meet people with the same interests/passions.

Feel as though this is a natural feeling. Sort of feels like you're intruding in an already connected circle.
