I have a hard time makin' new friends and I don't ever know what to say. When everyone in class is talkin' to each other, I just don't know how to get in on the convo. I really would like to make a few new friends, especially this one guy. I could talk to him at the bus stop, but I don't know how to start the convo with out him thinkin' I'm weird for randomly talkin' to him. I have talked to him before, a lot actually, but I haven't in a really long time. I wanna start over. I think I come of a bit unapproachable, but I don't do it on purpose. How can I make new friends and be more approachable?'
Making friends is never easy, even for those who are outgoing! You have nothing to worry about, babe. You just have to remember to be yourself, build up some more self-confidence and self-esteem and be comfortable with who you are!
Next time you try striking up a conversation with a classmate, try to engage the other person by saying something they can relate to. Make a comment about a new movie that just released or an assignment that everyone failed, etc. Talking about a hot topic will immediately get the other person going with their own thoughts and comments about the situation. Soon enough, you guys will be asking personal questions to each other!
Just remember that you don't have to act like someone or something you're not. People can see right through the masks and the facades others try to put on to look cooler. The only way you can become approachable is to be yourself. This will make others feel comfortable around ya! I know you can do it! Good luck, girlie!

Oh sweetie, don't give up.. if you really like him i'm sure all of this is just in your head that he likes some other girl, and even if he does if you feel you might actually have a chance, always go for it!! Don't let your emotions interfere with what could be a beautiful relationship.. love, girlygirl

Ok, well my problem is that i have this guy that i really like.. obviously, but the problem is i don't know how to talk to him right, i mean i do talk to him because he is in some of my classes but i get the feeling that he likes this other girl. I'm not sure if i should give up all hope or if i should still talk to him and go for it, i'm so confused.. help!

Like OMG! I have the same exact problem as you guys, i used to be pretty good friends with this guy Tim and idk ever since like last year he hasn't talked to me.. i don't know what i did to him or anything but it's really starting to bug me, i hope you have better luck then me!!, I'm kind of a hypocrite for saying this, but just talk to him if you really want to, peace out lovey!

Hey hun, don't even worry about talking to him, cause you know what?, you are going to get so fed up with not talking to him that one day it'll just happen, if you used to talk then it shouldn't seem awkward at all that you still want to go back to talking, it'll all come naturally. Best wishes
