I've been trying and i'm not sure how to make friends, any help??

Well; you sen them a request go to the useres userpage and click "befriend [usename]".

September 7th, 2008, 12:43 PM
Well if you talk to someone and find them to be pretty friendly (shouldn't be too hard), just go to their profile and you'll find a befriend so-and-so link. This will send a friend request to that person.

Don't worry, everyone is very friendly around here and will almost always accept your requests =P

i know how to send a friend request but noone finds me interesting, how can i be fun and outgoing in a way people like?

September 7th, 2008, 12:44 PM
For starters, post more. You make friends on PC in the same way you do in real life, just talk to people and take part in discussions.

September 7th, 2008, 12:45 PM
Well if you're nice to people then they'll become friendly towards you, at this point you can consider them friends.

September 7th, 2008, 12:46 PM
ok, so just posting a famous topic and talking with people with interest will get me friends?

the bitter end.

Maybe; it depends; sometimes I just look at someone's thread and say 'hey I like this person' and then send them a request.

September 7th, 2008, 12:49 PM
oh, i always thought i had to talk with them for a pretty long time, cuz most of the time they would leave the thred in the middle of the conversation.

the bitter end.

Well... I sent you a request, so...

Anywho; good luck finding other friends =D

Have you tried describing your interests?Like what you like doing besides playing pokemon or what you like about pokemon etc.

September 7th, 2008, 12:59 PM
You want to know how I do it?

Go up to random people and complement them like "Oh thanks for visiting my profile." or "I like your theme." or "Oh hey you live in America! Cool!"

You could try something like that. =D

If you want to be popular on PC, just do as much as you can every time you sign on--posting, privates messaging, visitor messaging, etc. Try your best to enjoy this place to the max, people will like you. You can take a look at the member ~NinetalesSakura~ if you want to see an example of how it's done. She went overboard, but nevertheless got popular really fast.

I'll be your friend, but really, just be nice/yourself. :DDD

September 7th, 2008, 2:35 PM
Yup he's right.
No need to change just for that.Try this,if you get a view from a person go to thier page and start a conversation with them.Also posting more and helping others is a great way to start.^^

I think I have to make a little suggestion here and out of all the rather good will advice so far, it might sound a bit...blunt.

I honestly believe that your initial belief was accurate. If you've known someone for a while (and I don't mean for just a few weeks) and you can hold a conversation with them comfortably, then you can consider befriending them. I don't know about anyone else but if you only have one thing in common with a person and have maybe talked to them only a couple of times, I wouldn't really consider that a healthy relationship. It's more like a placebo effect in order to achieve forum status (and that might be just what you want and if it is, go for it) but I don't believe it'll build you any strong friendships.

The other suggestions are good, don't get me wrong, they'll definitely get your foot in the door and it's always good to have a mutual start but if you're in it for the long run, be more assertive but also smart about who you're getting involved with. Also understand when to accept rejection and cut your losses.

I do believe in the whole 'be yourself' shtick, so if you stick to that, I'm sure you'll find someone or some people who'll appreciate it.

If you help people they will befriend you. Try making a really cool thread and let it take off.

Haha, we're just the same. :P

But if you post more interesting things, making interesting topics, sure the y will like you. Try a little talk to the users [not controversial].

Re-register with the username of Silver Riolu or BeachBoy.

Okay, seriously, I wouldn't send people random friend requests. Whenever I get sent a friend request from someone I know, I get ticked off. Friend requests are accepted to prove that you're friends and you can't be friends by just asking someone to be on your friends list. Be yourself. Tell someone that you like their signature or profile.

I never send anyone a friend request until I know them rather well. Have a few conversations with the person you're trying to befriend before trying to make your friendship a known one.

just be nice to people and they'll send you a request! (maybe)

ill make friends by being cool.

Well, perhaps the core problem is your About Me section. Seems rather boring and doesn't really describe you. Most of the times, in my case, I check out someone's about me section before I send them a request to see if I have any interest that's like them. Perhaps filling that section out would be a wonderful idea to do first.

Secondly, though this is only from what I see, your signature is rather huge. Most of the people with signatures that long don't have many friends listed in their profile.

Anyways, moving on to what you can do.
Don't send random requests for people you don't know. In my case, when I get these, I deny them and some of them even end up in my block list.
You shouldn't really request anyone to be your friend without having some conversations together. Find someone you'd like to be friends with and post in their profile dropping by and starting a conversation.

Just remember, friend count isn't everything nor the most important thing here. Don't go around sending everyone you talk to on PC a friend request. Because then you really aren't friends with most of them.

I made all of my friends in a sorta odd manner.

First off, I would get myself known. I met some of my friends In this awesome forum (http://www.pokecommunity.com/forumdisplay.php?s=&daysprune=&f=43) and this awesome thread.

I got many MSN addresses from them and started using Windows Live Messenger. Since I met the right people, I got invited to these mass convos (Windows Live) which you talk to many more random people.

Some of them I just posted on their profiles commenting them on their banners, etc.

It all comes naturally once you know how. Hope you find yourself some friends here. :3

Just go up to a person you think you'd like to befriend, talk to them in their profile and be as friendly as possible. Then maybe you can send a friend request. : 3
