Making a friend. - September 2nd 2013, 03:49 AM

Okay, well I started High School last Tuesday and I noticed this guy in my lunch bell and gym class -also when we walk to different classes, I see him too- and since then we've been exchanging a lot of eye contact. I don't know. Does he want to be friends with me.. or? haha I don't notice things as well as others do. I've tried to say something to him, but I haven't. He even likes the same music I do!! I want to become friends with him, but I'm just nervous. I feel like we could become like best friends. How can I talk to him? I catch him looking at me during lunch too. Bleh. I don't know what to do. I get really nervous trying to make new friends, so it's hard.


bullshit, you fucking miss me.

Don't worry about saying anything impressive. Just cross your fingers, force yourself to to go up and say "hey, what's up?'. Or ask him something about the class, like how he likes the teacher of if he understood one of the concepts you might be wanting help with. He might be shy too, so just brave it and walk up to him.

He might talk to you at some point or your might have a chance to finally be near him but that could take for ever. It'll be ok, nothing that bad can come from it

It's very understandable getting nervous in a situation like this. But, with practice and work, you can become less shy, and more open to new people, experiences, and opportunities.

I think Wallflower had some great advice. Force yourself to go outside of your comfort zone. Meaning, force yourself to say something to him. It can be even something as small as a "hi". Or it can be a question about one of your classes (ie: "Hey ____, did we have any homework in ____ today? I don't remember!"). Start with simple conversations, and slowly you will be able to build on the friendship and it may turn into something good! However if you don't even try, you will never know what it could have turned out like!

You can do it!


Best wishes,
Chris

I hope you know that you deserve it all. The best, the most honest, the most beautiful purest love in the world. Not only to be loved by others, but to be loved by yourself. To look in the mirror and think "Yes, I'm exactly who I want to be". To speak up and be proud of yourself. To be brave and open. You deserve the nicest and most caring people to walk into your life. You deserve it all, you know. The whole world...
