Ya gotta figure out what your interests are and go to those places. You're a likable guy, you shouldn't have a problem.

what is this....."friend" of which you speak?

It sounds Dutch. I don't do wooden shoes or windmill houses.

I have two non-related people whom I would not kill given the chance to do so without repercussions. Does that count?

I think you have to be friends with yourself, first. I'm not a very popular member of the rust clan, so then it's perfectly fine for me to call you a bunch of fags and not even feel bad about it.

given some of your other posts over the last bit, is suspect the real question is not so much "how do you make friends?" but "how do you make friends who are on the same page you are in terms of a sober lifestyle?".

that's not always easy if part of what has bound you into friendships has been the things/experiences you now realize aren't where you need to be and be healthy.

you are an interesting, funny person and it's easy for us to see that here, because of the basic anonymity, but it's probably hard to be as authentic as you are here in person, because at some level you might give a small shit about how you present with someone you actually have to see in real life.

maybe you should ask that question in a meeting.

Depends, Garrett. What kind of friends do you want? Real life ones, or virtual ones? And I'm not saying this to poke fun. I learned the best way to make friends is to make your colleagues your friends, mostly because these are the people you see the majority hours of the day. And amongst these groups of people, there are bound to be those who are around your age group and share your same interest, or also wonder where and how to make friends. If you're working, start there, that's my suggestion.

As for virtual friends, the Internet obviously. I mean, how can you not consider us your friends?! You're even on my Facebook list of friends!

Its not hard.

Be sociable and outgoing.
Make an effort to remember peoples names and basic bio from when you first meet them.
Be helpful and generous.
Refrain from gossip.

You basically build a good guy reputation, and with that and some social effort on your part aquaintances gradually deepen to friendships.

I am quite close to about a dozen people, about a third of those friendships started after I became an adult.

Friendship is overrated. This is because contrary to what Kant said, they are in fact both ends in themselves and means.
