Making friends can be both exciting and scary, but it is really hard to get started.That is why Thato decided to Ask Springster for help.
Read her question below:
Thato recently moved to a different town and is struggling to make friends. None of the people she has met have been a good fit for her personality. She wants to know how she can make friends.
Making friends can be hard. We asked a few Springsters how they were able to find their besties. Here is some of the advice they had to give:
Friends who are interested in what you are interested in.
If you like reading, make friends at a library, or if you like playing soccer join a club which will have people with similar interests. For example, if you like computers and technology - you can go to a coding event.
2. Why don’t you look online?
The internet can be a great place to make a meaningful friendship with people that have similar interests as you. There are a number of groups for people who like everything from anime, different sports or subjects. Join the groups to meet more like-minded people. Remember, online connections are not a replacement for offline connections in your new town as we don't recommend meeting up with anyone you met online.
Friends can be a great support when you are going through your teenage years, so choose your friends wisely, treat them well, and love and encourage each other.
