Go in with the attitude that they want to be friends with you, instead of you wanting to be friends with them. But don't be arrogant or act like you know it all. Stay always courteous though out the conversation.
Start a chat and find stuff that you relate.You are having trouble finding a friend and im having trouble finding a GIRLfriend.But I am pretty good at drinking beer.-----Song:Billy Currington Pretty Good At Drinking Beer
If u shy, then that's it. U can't b shy around people, they want to hang out with people that talk about fun subjects, and u need to be funny and confident. Be the first one to talk don't Wait for people to talk to y first. So what are u waiting for homie?!? Just do what I said, and u should be good with people.
Shy doesn't necessarily mean you can't have friends, or make friends. People think I'm shy. But it's because I don't say anything unless I think I have something to offer to the conversation. Don't confuse shyness with wisdom. When someone talks about something that you know about.... then step in. Us shy people are very deep. We think before we offer our words of wisdom to others. Making friends will follow when they see you for your wisdom, and not judging before you know the whole story.
