Making New Friends at School

Moving away from friends or dealing with friends moving away from you can be tough. But as you get older, you'll constantly meet new people. School is a great place to make new friends.

 

Making new friends is easy — especially friends who share your interests. In school, there are countless clubs and organizations: environmental, art, public service, to name a very few. There are also sports teams, bands and choral groups.

 

Select a group that interests you and works with your schedule. Sign up! You'll have an opportunity to meet a lot of new people. Oh, and don’t forget to introduce yourself to the people in your classes.

 

If you can muster up the courage to try something new at school, always remember: Everyone has been in your position before. Trying something new can be a fun way to discover your talents. You might become a star at the long jump in track or perhaps a great treasurer for the student council. See what’s available and do your research to determine if it’s something you want to try. Have fun and you could meet some new friends!

 

If you’re really interested in the group, most likely you’ll fit in naturally. You have at least one thing in common, and you can start your introductions by asking how they decided to be part of the group. You may find you have even more in common. Just remember to be real. If you have to fake something to make a friend, it’s probably not going to be a good relationship. If you’re being genuine, you will be able to tell if this will develop into a solid friendship.

 

The great thing about school is that you're surrounded by a lot of people your own age and you may have more than one class with them throughout the day. Take the initiative and start a conversation with the girl sitting next to you. Introduce yourself and ask her about the homework assignment or the upcoming pep rally. Simply get the conversation started. You can do it!

 

The best kind of friendships start when you’re open, confident and genuine. Be yourself and start up a conversation with someone new. Sometimes that's all it takes. Good luck!

My family is moving from the Bay Area to Patterson in a few weeks and it is my last year of high school. I'm so scared to go to a new school and have to meet new people in my senior year. It sucks and i know im gonna have a hard time making friends because i am extremely shy

My advice to people who feel that making friends is impossible is this: Find a person who is sitting all by herself or is new to the school. She needs a friend and you, too. That's a great way to make friends. This really helped me. I already made some new friends. I hope this advice helps to those people who find it impossible to make friends.

I used to be friends with a girl who had something bad to say about everyone, and acted like boys were infested with sicknesses. She thought every girl who flipped her hair a and giggles is acting or is popular. She was also very stereotypical.

I think that most of the time making new friends is really awkward!
