Making friends

Making friends

peachmarie peachmarie
Hey guys! I'm just wondering how easy it is for everyone to make friends, I'd really like to make more female friends in my area. I like crafts, Pc gaming, hanging out, going for coffee, talking and watching movies. I'm just not sure how to go about finding these people to hang out with. I live with my boyfriend but would be open to do things with a female friend if that's the direction it wen't in. I live in De Pere WI, if anyone is interested in hanging out to be friends or otherwise let me know. I'm not sure if we're allowed to put stuff like this on here but I'd really like some female friends.

Hey there, this post inspired me to do request something for the forum - I'll keep my fingers crossed it gets approved.

It's definitely okay to seek out new friendships. Though we aren't a dating site, we do encourage people to make friends and get to know one another a little better. We all know one thing - we have sex and/or sex toys in common, so that cat is already out of the bag!

I live in a small town-but there are a couple crafting groups that get together for socializing and crafting--maybe you could join one in your area? Have you tried talking to others in a local coffee shop--asking advice on things to do that you enjoy is a good start...also laundromats are good for finding other women who are friendly. I live in MT--otherwise I could hang out with you.

Your best bet will be to just put yourself out there... It took me a while, but don't be afraid to pop in a thread, shake your ass, wiggle your nose and then run out. You'll make friends. lol

I think we all agree that MrWill does more than his share of ass-shaking and nose-wiggling around here.

I do what I can to keep things lively. There are so few men around I have to do what I can to resist the overwhelming estrogen levels here! :-P

Glad you posted that, I am trying to find some friends too and am finding it's not too easy. I guess everyone is just so busy and I'm from a small town. Good luck

I understand your situation. Most friends come from work or school. If you don't click with people from there and your hobbies are all indoor activities (nothing wrong with that) well then it is hard to make friends.

Try signing up for a class, whether it is a dancing class, cooking class, painting class, learn to sing class or whatever.
Try taking up a sport or martial art. Yoga, tennis, basketball, softball there's adult leagues and group lessons for lots of stuff.
If you like watching movies, go out to theaters and look up weird film festivals and showings and talk to people there.

Oh and wherever you go, DON'T BRING YOUR PHONE.

It used to be easy for me but apparently not anymore. I have moved to a different country a year ago and have not managed to make a single one. My family and friends all live in another hemisphere, if not for Skype I would probably die from loneliness.

Sounds like you have a lot of really fun interests! I too like crafts, coffee and sometimes gaming.

I guess I'm not the best person to give friendship advice right now since it seems all of mine have disappeared. Lol. However, I've made really good friends with people my age who I've ended up getting to know by going to the same places like the gas station I get gas from, restaraunts, etc. It seems like we always end up striking up conversations and then end up friends. I've actually made some great ones this way.

You could always post something on Craigslist. Not a bad idea, just be careful.

Personally, I try to just start conversations with people when I'm somewhere I frequent and enjoy because they end up sharing similar interests -- the bookstore, for instance. Lol. I have a girl friend who meets up with me occasionally to go to the bookstore. Sounds like a bore, but we both love books & love to talk, so it's a really fun thing. The only problem is, we get loud in there. Lol.

You could throw a little get-together, even. Go to some local events -- that's a sure way to meet friends. We are a tiny area with little to do for events and such & even we end up making friends at the little things we do have here.

Making friends does take time but agree js250 and MrWill, you need to get yourself out there where you will meet others. You already have a variety of interests that appeal to you, many that I enjoy myself, but I'm on the east coast.

Joining an organization for one of your interests is a good beginning, I met my SO that way at a singles club as well as many other life long friends. We had club officers, a membership list that was freely distributed amongst the members and a basic common interest, college education. Groups of us would often get together at an event sponsored by a member for a Dine-out night, theatre, movies, book readings, etc. Coffee shops and other public places where there are many people are also a relaxing safe way to meet others until a relationship builds toward friendship.

Having moved away from those I knew and lived close to, I started at a salon over a year ago, not to make friends but friendship did develop and I've been out shopping and out for drinks already with a couple of girls I've bonded with.
