    I take it you're lonely, then? Because I don't think it really works like that. And I know it's general advice, but it's worked for me. My friends were dragging me down so I went and did stuff that I wanted to do, and I met a lot of people doing that stuff who I had a lot in common with. Now I have an awesome group of pals!

    Oh Bacon. I choose THAT idea. :D

    Yeah, I know what you mean DR. It's just really hard to transition from "Best Friend Super Pals who might as well be family" (who I'm seeing in two weeks) to "A bunch of random people I know nothing about who I'm only spending time with because I'm lonely and I hope to make friends to fill my empty heart."

    Meeting new people can be hard. It's true.

    When my band broke up I thought I'd never have a pal as good as the drummer. We were friends since highschool and had that telepathic knowing-what-the-other-would-say comfort level thing. It was great, and hilarious. But now I've got a few pals who are even closer! It's great!

    Except when all his awesome pals wanna go the club and old Flannel sides can't get in.

    You shut your whore mouth!! I wonder if they'll let me in tonight. I'm wearing a $6 op shop t-shirt and a faggy wee hand-crafted badge of some kind of parrot or something. They probably have a rule against faces or something now.

    But how? How! D:

    This is totally useless to contemplate sitting in my room at 2:40AM. I obviously need to try harder instead of thinking about it so abstractly all the time. But I'm so lazy...and nothing fits into my schedule. I've even tried to ask people to hang out with me! They just don't care...

    Ugh, I'm going to stop and just go to sleep and wake up not thinking about this anymore.

    Yes. Procrastinating isn't the answer. I know this advice would get me an infraction in H/A, but I went out drinking. By myself. I understood that it was a weird, pathetic thing to do, but I decided to rely on my charm (what little I have) to meet people.

    Also, try hanging out with work friends or school friends. Even if they're not perfect buddies, they will grant you access to more people who you could hang out with! Hell, come to Perth and I'll introduce you to some people! (And then never call you again you weirdo.)

    Adam: Yes.

    srsizzy: Dude. You still go to school, right? Schools have classes. Classes have other people in them. Talk to people before and after classes about the homework, the reading, the material, whatever. Something that you are guaranteed to have in common. If they seem cool, find out what they like to do, and then if they still seem cool, suggest doing stuff that you both like together.
    If not that, then find out what sort of clubs there are at your school (I'm assuming you're in school), and try going to a couple that involve things you like and following the previously described Conversation Plan, adjusted for the topic of the club or whatever instead of classwork. That way your pool of potential friends will at least contain people that share an interest.
    But don't expect to be SuperBuddies with people right off the bat. You've got to get to know people, and to do that you need to start somewhere.

    Creative schools over in the United States seem so cool. A few of my tutors said that going to art school over there is one of the best things they've done for their career.

    Loomdun, having studied English as a third language I'd say I understand almost everything you write. Compared to most Finnish people I know you have far larger dictionary but lack just some carefulness. I bet it helps if you try to express thing with shorter sentences. That's what I'll usually do to compensate my skills.

    Also, tax-refund day!

    I wouldn't really call it being careless. I spend sometimes a embarrassing amount of time re-reading what I type, and still usually end up failing.
