Exclamation need friends, next to no friends right now - June 15th 2011, 12:06 AM

this years almost done( like 10 days left) and after sumer vacations over my goal is to make atleast one new friend on the first or second day of 8th grade. The only problem? I'M SUPER SHY ! and might have a tiny bit of social anxiety. So any tips for making new friends? other than talking more to people? because everyone is already in their own little groups and most arnt willing to take in anymore people.I was thinking on the frist day of school I'd go up to a new kid and ask if they were new here and if they were , tell them my name and offer to show them around or helping them with anything if they needed it. and......... thats all i got. so if anyone can give me some advice on this it would really help me and my two other friends alot! we are kinda one of the smallest social groups in school.

the first days of school are always the best to make friends... I am now a JR in high school and I know all to well if you want to make new friends the first day is the best to just get out there and start a conversation with someone... like maybe the person that sits next to you in class.. and then as the year goes on just make small talk with people like comment on something but DON'T be clingly like or if you see a classmate in the hall and ya'll don't really talk in class say hey... Take baby steps first but don't force yourself into anything

Best of Luck
