I really find it very difficult to get used to someone in a few days we have met especially at this age. I think am just right, because friends have landed people in troubles. So it is good to know someone beyond his facial expressions and treat every word of him/her with a lot of seriousness to judge who they are and weather you can be more closer or not. Otherwise if you have haste in making friends know that they can influence who you are.

It all depends on how fast or slow it takes for you to study a new person in your life. Though its not good to make conclusions as soon as possible when it comes to studying a new persons way of life because people turn to pretend at times a lot.

Post by Vallen Kale »

On the very first day of my nursery school, I remember that I could make friends easily. But I have forgotten when and why, as I grew up, I have found it very hard to make friends.

I started my first day at college six years ago. Believe it or not, I was extremely reluctant to be friends with my classmates. I still don't know why but it felt really uncomfortable. Maybe because I am an introvert but that may not be the case. I do have friends but not that many and I cherish them as much as I cherish my books. Making friends is a really difficult experience for me.

Yes! My best friend wasn't the person I liked on first glance, but we warmed up to each other. It took a while, which means years and we both made the effort. Like I mentioned, we're besties now.

Meeting someone new is always challenging, i love making new friends but sometimes getting to know people can be difficult. When i was younger i uses to be shy so making new friends wasn't really something for me, i remember a classmate i had, at First when she joined our school i judged her wrongly and i was reluctant to get to know her then at some point we were forced to sit next to each other, gradually i got to know her and we became best friends

I am always reluctant to meet new people. I'm a bit of an introvert and am socially awkward so I experience uneasiness when trying to network. I was reluctant to meet a new person actually just this year, and I am 27. It had nothing to do with the person or any of their traits, but more because of who I am as a person! :D
We did meet though, and became close rather quickly. Now she is my best friend and I have no idea who I'd share my interests, complaints, jokes, or good reads with!

That has happened to me so many times that I have got used to it. Since school, i have always felt aversion to people who later on become the best friends in that phase of life. Meeting my life partner was nothing different, which started from repulsion, hate to friends and love.

Yes indeed! Some of the people that ended up being my best friends were people I couldn't stand at first. I once knew a very loud and obnoxious girl who was a few years younger than me and she really got on my nerves. She was always bothering me and jumping around really hyper, but then one day she told me I had a nose like Santa and I was so speechless I kind of just had to take it in for a moment. She started to wonder if I was offended and so I told her she looked like an elf. She started laughing and I started laughing and we kind of bonded from that point on and became really good friends who genuinely cared about each other. We also kept our nicknames, lol.

there is this guy who joined my church as a new member. For some reason or another I was the first person he approached for clarification on something he did not understand. Though I serve as an usher, he did once again approach me to get information about something else. Now I feel he could be a perfect match for a friend but I am still reluctant to allow this friendship. Its not only him But I have always been hesitant about rushing into a friendship

I am very shy, and most of my time people imagine i don't want to become friends. But i have to say, once they get into my inner sanctum there is no going back. But i do have reservations for some characters. Just being cautious i guess.

Back when I was a kid, I'm really very shy and reluctant to approach people and make friends. There was a time when I've met my best friend in an awkward situation. That was around 4th grade. I don't really understand at that time when there is like a certain pull that asks me to befriend her and automatically it just happened. Just made small introduction and talk. Thinking I just ignored her before even though we're always on the same class. We just became best of friends until now. I really cherish those times and thanking God that I've met her.
Because if you've found meaning in your life, you don't want to go back. You want to go forward.

When I was younger I was more of a follower to others. Even now I still do it and I feel as though I don't have much real friends.

Still dont know how to approach people first, I always stay with people I already know and I'm comfortable with, I secretly wish I could start a conversation because there are certain people I'll like to talk to but I'm scared of how they might respond

There have been several occasions on which I have not wanted to be friends with someone after first meeting them. The most recent was when I was in my mid-twenties. We ended up having to hangout several times after our first meeting because of mutual friends. Several years later, she is still one of my best friends. I was even in her wedding. Thank goodness for mutual friends making you do stuff!
