one thing to do is to be likeable! one thing I was once told is that in order to have a friend, you have to be a friend!
the most important thing is to be yourself! don't try to be somethat you aren't cause you wlll soon learn that you may have expectations that you cannot fullfill!
the other thing is don't be too desperate to make friends! in other words, don't do things tthat you know aren't right just so you will be liked and you will seem cool and fit in!
get involved with things that you like! for example like dance, cheer, or science! there has to be something that you like to do. find groups /clubs that have things that you like to do, and you will meet people that have similar interests and you will hopefully make friends!!
Look between Y and I on your keyboard. There is someone unique and beautiful or ( handsome ) LOL
