So this year I want to make friends any tips on how not to be nervous in public?

I do have friends but they just internet buddies and soon I meet someone who is my age who might become my friend but I don't want to go to overboard and scare her or something so what the do's and don'ts?

well, as a person that use to have SAD (Social Anxiety Disorder) I know that it is always difficult to just talk to people. But I read an article about SAD and how to calm your nerves. Just relax, chances are, they are just as nervous as you. Once you hit on a common ground, it's smooth sailing from there on out. And there is no such thing as overboard, just don't creep them out, be yourself and people will love you for you. It's better to be liked for who you are as oppose to what you are not. Hope this helps :)

Do be yourself, don't try to lie. Do tell the truth when they ask you questions, don't base your whole friendship on a lie. Do let the guy video tape the pillow fight from outside the window, don't close the blinds... O_O

don't judge her and don't pick fights with her, if shes the right person to be hanging out with then she'll accept you for who you are

Do's - Don't be afraid of being yourself, in all situations. Everyone has their strengths and weaknesses. Often the flaws one see within themselves, are perceived as gifts by others. Do show true interest/respect for the other person, including the one hidden within yourself. Smile and enjoy as only an open heart can.

Do-really listen to the other person. Talk abt her, not yourself.

Accept the fact that others are as nervous as you are.
