Do you make friends easily or do you find it difficult to make new friends

SairaSaira Posts: 846 ✭✭✭
Friendship one of the most important things to have for a fulfilling life. It’s definitely hard to put a price on a good friend.I don't make new friends easily because lots of people are not friends they are just passing time with you at work or in class or as a neighbor.It's difficult to find honesty and good faith in a true friend.

    I love to make new friends, Ya some of them may be passing time with you, but remember you one thing every one teaches you a new lesson of life,some of them may be bad & some of them may be good.

    On a personal note, I don't find it uneasy to mingle and make friends. Though not everyone is worthy of being your special friend. Thanks.

    This is an interesting article though it is as much about personality as making friends. Do you have a love/hate relationship with other people in general? You might be an extroverted introvert.

    People think you must be either an "extrovert": somebody who likes being around others, or an "introvert" who wants to be left alone. But not both.

    This is a interesting question... i think that i make friends easily. I'm a sociable person.. i love to know other people, cultures, and countries. My wife says: "You rely a lot on people." hahahah but i'm this. I trust the people until something happens =)

    Generally speaking, I think that is difficult for everyone to make friends if we speak about real friends. In this crazy word, where nobody has enough time even for herself/himself, it is difficult to find somebody who is honest, reliable and who has all the features which real friend has to have.

    For me it's very difficult to make real friends. If I wont to find friend who will be with me when I am OK it's easy to find, but if I wont somebody who will be always with me in good and bad situation it's very hard.

    I find it easy to talk to strangers, si I do make friends easily. Often chance encounters with strangers for me end up with us becoming friends too.

    I have a good first contact with poeple and I consider myself social , but I don't have luck with friends , they betray my trust quickly :'(
  • mheredgemheredge Teacher Here and therePosts: 26,145 mod
    That's a shame @sarah. Maybe you have too high expectations. This can be my problem sometimes.

    I have a one best friends and many people whom I can name acquaintanceship. The word "friend" means for me a person whom I count on and likewise. I marvel over a situation when people after one or two days call someone a friend. I easily make acquaintanceship, but after passage of time I make a friendship.
  • jackelliotjackelliot Posts: 702 OTT
    @nomad81 I agree
  • guimorandiguimorandi Posts: 10 ✭✭
    I never had problems in making new friends. I don't know about other countries but in Brazil wherever you are people will speak with you, even if they don't know you they'll say Hello, Good morning etc... So since I was child I learned to be a very friendly guy and I'm so proud to be like that, that's the reason I have many and many friends in the area where I live.
  • mheredgemheredge Teacher Here and therePosts: 26,145 mod
    I agree, I found people in Brazil very friendly wherever I went, even if we couldn't communicate in English. Somehow it never seemed to matter @guimorandi.

    As I am not a sociable person, I can barely make friends. Friendship for me is not the relation which I can make with anyone. From my point of view, my sister, mother , daughter and husband are my best friends ever. They are the only persons who I can trust ,tell them about my life, consult them any time and undersand and accept their opinions. To sum up, my family is the only persons who I can maintain contact with regardless of any consideration so that they are my real friends.

    Now I'm a bit afraid of interacting with you @Rosemary. I fear I could bother you. ^^

    I'm an introvert so it's really hard for me to make new friends. However, it doesn't mean that I hate being in the relationship. If you take the initiative, I will get familiar and I will feel comfortable chatting with you.
  • mheredgemheredge Teacher Here and therePosts: 26,145 mod
    Friendship has to be a two way process, so if I find I'm the one who's making the effort all the time, I eventually give up. Though some people are not at all good at keeping in contact but sometimes this is just how they are.

    Nowadays I find it difficult to make new friends. When I was younger it was much easier but I have always been a type of shy guy :) I consider myself as an introvert but I strive to change it a little bit
