June 1, 2009 Need Advice on Friendships? Okay! This is REALLY embarrassing to admit. But, since I just started attending a new school, I DON’T have any friends. YET!! There! I said it. Just call me the “Friendless Wonder.” But, I hope to get some friends really soon. Sometimes I wish I could just go to the Mall, pick ’em out and buy ’em. Like a really cute pair of shoes. I’ve seen a few girls that seemed kind of friendly eating in the cafeteria. But, I was really nervous about just walking up and trying to start a conversation. I mean…what if they don’t like me. Or, even worse, what if they IGNORE me. Then, I’d feel really STUPID. Actually, I think the problem is that I’m kind of shy and most of the time I feel… INVISIBLE! Kind of like this… Which makes finding new friends even harder. However, I’m hoping this will change and I’ll find some real, live FRIENDS to hang out with! DORK DISH: HEEELP!! Please give me some tips for how to meet and make new friends? OR, tell me how you met your BFF?
