I've learned that you don't have to have deep conversations with people to be good friends, just a simple how are you will do then you can get on with what you are doing. I'm not necisarily saying i'm trying to be someone else, i am getting out and meeting more people which makes me feel better and more sociable. My ideal plan for the weekend used to be sitting in my lounge room all day playing video games however now i if i do that i feel like i should be getting outside talking to people. But that's just me, i'm slowly becoming comfortable being able to talk to anyone and everyone. But how come nowadays everyone is so afraid to just say hi to people? I've observed that the seniors make great conversation with people they've never even met and there's never an awkward moment. Children these days have been brought up to steer away from strangers, that is good in some aspects but, you're not gonna make many friends that way.


Cooooooooooooool man, im happy for you.

I forgot about the original post.

Striking up a conversation with a complete stranger on a bus, or elevator, or in a grocery store will surprise you. People are more friendly than you think. It's a good practice we should all encourage.

There is always a risk with every action. Then again, quoting the bad guy from the movie "Meltdown": "No risk, no reward." :-D

Thank Jeje :D I couldnt' be bothered to read all the post up til the last one, but from what i read it seems this post has turned into a debate about animal rights :lol: I'm an animal lover, own two dogs. I don't treat them as lesser creatures, i consider them family and love them. But anyways, i think something anyone should remember is what a simple "hey" can do. It can make someone's day when you simply say hey to a stranger. Don't be afraid. That's what i need to work on more, letting go of that fear of rejection. :geek:

People are more friendly and open than you think they are.
We all went off on a tangent in your thread, trying to define "affection" and "friend" without realizing we were already friends, in the elevator of life.

This forum is the elevator and I hope we all go up! Take on new passengers and always say "hello!"

There is a lot one can glean from Rebecca's site. B-)

For me, i hate being solo or alone. I love being with people, i’m a friendly person.
I’m never at home, i spend all my time outside, and sometime i return home at 01:00 in the morning, but my dad hate that so he confiscates my motorbike. But i have a lot of friends, so sometime a friend come with his motorbike to take me. On Facebook, i have 8401 friends. Some people ask me how do you make a lot of friends so fast, and i reply; it's the way you think about people.

Sounds like quite the life you have ;) What is the way you think about people? I will say i have made a significant amount of new friends since creating this post...I think the main reason would be that i am more open to people and not as afraid of rejection. There are still times i avoid saying hi to certain people i'm not overly friends with for the fear they'll think i'm weird or something but i'm getting better. I guess fear of rejection is the main culprit for being shy or quiet

I was in fact very shy as a kid. But now I have changed (I took the mask off) extremely. It is really weird when I think about myself in the past.
