I got facebook about a week ago, and I seem to have more friends than I thought :) God for my confidence!

Still not able to make real friends of the opposite sex. A pity cause I often feel that it’s easier to talk to boys (or do you call them men now?). Anyway, have impressed some guys by knowing more about sports than them just by making short comments. Love the look on their faces, and when they admitt I’m right. Can’t talk about sports with any of my female friends really.
But there are more reasons to get to know guys. The hardest thing though is to separate intrest of relationship from interest of friendship..on both sides. Often seem to be that those interests doesn’t match.
I’ll figure out a way to make this easier some how.
I thik I made a few connections at my friends birthday party. I realized that my broad rage of knowledge and interests can be extremely useful. If I really try it isn’t so hard to find a connection with almost anyone.
I believe motivation is my problem. I need to be more open to every kind of contact and see every person as a way to learn more. I think I can be very judgemental sometimes. And just because I made a connection doesen’t mean we have to be best friends. The point is – it doesn’t hurt to have a few connections out there.
Next time I will try to say something to everyone at the party, depending on how many people that are there of course. But the least I can do is trying to talk with the people who are next to me.
I’ve met an expert, the kind of person you talk with for 10 minutes and feel like you’ve known your whole life. He has a thousands of friends and never speaks ill of anyone. He compliments, he ask questions and he feels so genuine and honest. He is really interested in what people have to say. He lives life without worries with the philosophy: ‘do what you want, life is too short to hesitate’. He’s not ashamed of himself and he talks with everyone the same way – as I said, he’s genuine. There’s nothing to dislike about this guys personality.
I wish I could be like him.
People met: Hundereds, thousands? More than usual anyway.
Familiars made: at least over 10, too many to count ;)
Close friends made: 3
Pretty good when I look at it this way.
Hm, I’ve managed to make some new friends since the summer. But I think my over-all-skills in making connections is what has improved the most. The most disturbing thing is that the old cliché seems to be true – just be yourself. It isn’t easy but it’s when I stop censuring myself i seem to becomme interesting in others eye’s.
Hung out with a beginning-to-be-more-than-friends guy and his friends. We had a lot of fun, they are really nice people and I would love to see them again. Apparently I made a god first impression as well! At least among his female friends, which is very good news :) Perhaps making friends isn’t so hard if I just believed in myself and let my personality show.
I had such a good time last night! I don’t know why but it feels so much easier to hang out with guys than girls. They’re honest and there’s no gossip, which I love! Of course there are exceptions but the ones I met last night were also completely hilarious! I definitely want to hang out with them more :)
..but I am afraid that I have already started to see past the “just friends” part, which is the struggle when it comes to having “guy-friends”.
I’ve gotten to know a group of guys a bit trough a friend. They invite me to parties and I get along pretty well with them, it’s a cool gang and I can se them all as “just friends”. I’ve never had any real male friends. Perhaps I can consider them mine soon, it is hard to know when you have crossed the line…
Two of my best friends seem to be moving out of town at the same time. The pressure of making new friends has increased frightfully…
