Dear Dish-It: How Do I Make Friends?

Dear Dish-It,

how do i make friends?

Dear sharratt,


There are a couple of things you can do to make new friends. Just remember to keep an open mind and do the best with what you’ve got.


Step 1: Expand Your Mind
Try to look past people’s clothes and the attitudes they present to you. I bet you’ll find plenty of fun, smart, cool decent people you could totally be friends with right under your nose!


Step 2: Expand Your Universe
School isn’t the only place where you can meet new people and find friends. Check out some community groups, get a part-time job, volunteer, go to concerts you like, etc. There are plenty of cool kids out there – you’ve just got to go out and find them!


Finally, Kidzworld just reviewed a cool new book called 30 Days To Finding & Keeping Sassy Sidekicks & BFFs: A Friendship Field Guide by Clea Hantman. It’s a book full of friendship-related tips, advice and exercises you can actually test and try. Check it out!

    • Yeah. I can't pay people to be my friends.

    Just tell him you're not feeling well and ask him nicely to leave you alone.

As you seemed to prove by your comments.  You sound like one of those idiotic feminists.
