    I have two friends total.

    I should probably have a few more friends, for when my actual friends are busy. But so far so good.

    If they are too busy (for you) they are not your friends

    There are meetup groups you can go too. But honestly this stuff is very hard. Give yourself lots of breaks and don’t put pressure on yourself.

    I read somewhere on the internet that the entire concept of "friendship" is becoming extinct (including and especially in United States of America).

    Thankfully, I have pets.

    1. Go to a sports bar
    2. Watch the screens
    3. Agree with what people are saying "ridiculous ref, oh come on!" Or "fantastic player, [name] is" etc
    4. When you finish your drink, ask your new acquaintance(s) what they are drinking and get them one while you're up there
    5. Now you appear like a normal human and names will be exchanged. Next time maybe even numbers. Then who knows what might happen the 3rd time you bump into each other at the bar...

    I'm an introvert so I find it easiest to meet people at work. I'm there most of my life anyway.

    I moved a year ago and have been at my new job jist about a year now. Made one friend, and one friend/potential girlfriend. Sigh.

    Seriously OP there are these things called public places and if you spend enough time at one there’s going to be a person or people who will want to talk to you. Just don’t be a fucking weirdo or racist and everything should be fine.
