    How do you make friends?

    All my friends were people I knew from college, etc. Most people hang out with their same "group".

    Assuming you dont like your co-workers, how did you make your friends?

    Do you play any sports? Join a rec league. I started playing ultimate frisbee a while ago because some people I knew did it and it seemed like good exercise. It also had a side effect of widening my social circle.

    I've been extremely lucky with both countries I've moved to.

    I've got 3 people I could consider friends, maybe.

    You just get on with it via your work. Or like I have, via your other half's works' wives who do naff all all day too.

    Establish dominance. People would flock to you. Not the other way around. Impress them with your mma knowledge & post count.

    Wish I could give you great words here, but idk what you do all day where you go etc. Don't try to do it. Whatever you moved there for, handle your business and it will most likely happen. Kind of things just have a way of working out.

    Why not like your co workers?

    Do your rounds at the bars. Once you find your favorite one, become a regular. Go 3 nights a week, even if you're not really drinking. You'll become friendly with the regulars, and bang some chicks. You'll eventually get in a relationship and the two of you lovebirds will move in together. When you have a housewarming party, invite the bar friends. They'll come through and the real friendships will begin.

    This is a five year plan, by the way.

    Bring your old friends with you to your new house

    you can make temporary friends at gunpoint

    wait by the shore till someone starts drowning to save their life

    hit the friend button on facebook, it's easy

    cold calls, every page of the phonebook starting with A. Did any1 ever tell you about Babe Ruth?

    Best advice is just be friendly. But not creepy.

    Then that slut will cheat on you, you have to move out, split mutual friends 50/50, and eventually slay a bunch of random ass. 6 year plan.
