How do you go about making friends?

Asked by Hawaii_Jake (30619points) September 20th, 2010

Do you make friends easily? What do you do to draw people close?

I moved back to Hawaii almost 4 years ago from the mainland to be near my kids, and I suddenly realized that I have few friends. It’s mostly due to the fact that I have my kids with me on the weekends, and while I’m at home during the day time on weekdays, everyone else is out busy earning a living. The friends I have are not the kind who simply “hang out.”

I used to volunteer at the library’s literacy center, but that closed. My best friend bought a restaurant and now works 7 days/week. I’m missing companionship.

Have you ever moved and had to make new relationships?

Who are your friends? Are they mostly family members? How many new people do you let into your life?
