I suck at friendships - October 30th 2011, 04:36 PM

I have a tendency to make friends with stuck up people who feel they are super entitled and screw people over to get what they want. They arenít exactly bad people... they just have these giant egos and seem to literally feel like it is in their moral right to do whatever they please.

So... I guess I'm looking for advice on how to make friends. How do I start a new friendship? How do I develop it into a important close friendship?
Most all of my friends have put my worth below theirs and treated me like I suck. So, I was wondering, are all people that mean? Will I never have a close friendship where the other person really cares about me and is nice to me? And doesn't see me as a worthless person because I don't party as much as them? Or because I am not as good at school as them?

How can you say
I go about things the wrong way
I am Human and I need to be loved

My suggestion to you is that you start look for friends that are different from ones you'd normally go for. Branch out a bit. And step out of your comfort zone. Before moving from acquaintance status to friend status, evaluate who the person is. Really decide if this is the type of person you want to call a friend. Really get to know a person. A good way to make friends is by joining a group/club that's of interest to you. You'll be able to get to know people who share the same interests as you. Maybe start striking up a conversation with someone you ordinarily wouldn't. Ask if they want to hang out. Another suggestion, evaluate what you want in a friend. Ans shoot for that on your search for different friends. If they don't really fit what you want in a friend or what you DON'T want in a friend, then keep them at a distance.

Hopefully this helped.
Best of luck to you!
