My dear, You don't wanna do that .... You go get out on the street and you'll make even more friends that are 25% more truthful to you than on the net ....
Mostly just see what they're interested in. This is easy on sites like tumblr, and send them a message saying 'hi, wanna talk?' Most of my friendships have started because I wanted to help other people so I would say 'hey is something on your mind you want to talk about?' And I would go from there! Just go for it!
You can come to 7 Cups and join a group chat in session and just jump in and say hi and start talking.
First, remember that your should be careful about who you befriend, because the internet is full of trolls. Second, social media is the perfect way to find friends, because they always comment on posts you make, and there are ways to talk to them, like texting.
There are many different ways! It depends on a little bit of luck too, so don't give up if you can't succeed the first times. There are many chat sites out there. You can try out those. You'll find lots of different kinds of people there. Just be cautious and it should be fine. Then there is social media. Tumblr, Instagram for example. As you use such sites you can find interesting people and perhaps contact them. There are also apps such as Vent, where it is really easy to make friends. Think of what you like and maybe even find out about new hobbies. You can meet people while you play games online, at sites where you upload your art, at forums, etc. I know, it sounds easy but making friends isn't actually that easy! Just try to be nice, tolerant and confident. If someone doesn't seem interested or they act cold a few times, don't give up. Maybe they are just having a hard time at that moment. Of course if this person always acts that way you should probably stop, but this doesn't necessarily mean it's your fault. Maybe you two simply don't click, they are rude, or something else. Anyway, good luck :)
Get involved in the community here, everybody is super friendly and cordial. I'd prefer not making use of any other website to make friends as the credibility value is completely off, and it is precisely unsafe to do so! I hope this helps, be safe!
Be honest. Don't try to hide who you are, or change your personality to fit what is popular. Accept yourself, and others naturally will.
make a social account or even there are free online forum u can chat through and just start a conversation with a simple "hi.how are you" but you should always be careful with who you talk to.
Being truthful and honest with people is the best way to cultivate friendships online. Asking plenty of questions is a great place to start.
I think being yourself and trying to put yourself out there works most of the time. (not all of the time)
It complicated. There are dangers in the online becasue you dont know who your talking too but its easy just make sure its the right descion.
friendship is an ongoing process. find the people who have same of your hobbies. dont be in hurry. be careful in choosing friends.
My advice would be to find some sites that you are interested in and go from there. Say if you're interested in archery, you could go join an archery forum.
By being honest and kind! It's hard at first but you gotta put yourself out there. :) Opening up is really hard but when you surround yourself with people who you actually like it's a lot easier.
Maybe you could look for a website or a forum for your interests and sign up there. Normally there share people the same interests and you can chat with each other.
It is really simple. Talk to people about your interests, you would find many things which you both have in common. And tell them about your world and learn about theirs.
Just talk to them the way you talk to your family. Be nice and im sure the conversation will get better.
My only advice: be who you really are and don't lie, because that can cause further problems. Express your passions, and be as truthful to who you really are as you can.
Online it's a little easier to be vulnerable with my feelings and experiences because I'm very careful not to give out real personal details. I've made some great friends online this way.
Internet is such a wonderful invention. It could connect people from different places. Always remember that, each one of us is unique and we have different personality. So in order for you to make friends online, you should first know the word RESPECT. Not everything you think is right is also right to other people. Culture, tradition, religion and beliefs are some of the factors you need to consider. BE OPEN MINDED to all things and Be sensitive. Always consider others, dont just think about yourself.
Be polite, be yourself and find the same topics you're interested in and talk for hours ☺ It's easy to establish friends online as it's more personal than having the awkward meet ups
Don't be afraid to be yourself! Making online friends is easier than you think and they could really help you out in so many ways. Always be weary of your identity and don't give out personal information, though!
It's so easy! :D That's a good benefit that we've got from internet. Having bestfriends online is something interesting, we can share our daily life stories together,etc. But you need to be aware of this random people, to make sure that it'll not be dangerous for you. 1. Know your passion Make sure your passion/interest is common with those people you found on internet. 2. She/he interests in you It's important that we should have feelings before we become friends. 3.Aware of unappropiate stuffs We can't deny, this globalisation era, there are some people using internet for chatting about unsuitable things with people , so you need to make sure you don't involve to their business
One way is to find a website, like some kind of social media, and then find accounts that post about things you like. Once you find someone who likes things similar to your own. Talk to the person who you find that would best be a friend and talk to them. Find stuff you both like in it all and talk about that along with getting to know about them. It’s one of the easiest way to do it. Instagram, tumblr and possibly twitter can be some of the best places to do this at. Especially since you can find accounts based around the things you like for them
Tumblr is a good site to make friends on, so is 7cups and Instagram. Just message people, talk for a while and once you've bonded on a subject then you've found a potential friend.
Get involved in a community! Once you start commenting and being active on a forum, you'll find kindred spirits in no time.
Put your interests out there and see who has anything in common! (Without sharing personal information of course!) People are bound to share the same interests and start a conversation!! It just takes time
Sometimes it's not safe to trust people online, they can have a fake persona and pretend to be anyone they choose to be.However, a good way is to go on forums for things you like, say, Video Games or sports or even movies. From there, you can talk to new people who have similar interests as you. Get to know the people there, and eventually over time your friendships will build up.
Try to connect with people who have similar interests as you and don't be afraid to reach out to those who may be a little different as well. Don't give your personal information to anyone though. I think 7cups is a great place to find friends!!
Just look for people with similar interests and be weary of what information you give out. Fan sites,creative sites and forums are descent for this.
