I Am A Not So Socialable Girl.

Dear Al:
I don't get along well with some of my classmates. I recently moved to the States in hopes of achieving my dream but I can't seem to make any good friends prior my journey in studies. I have tried to be more social with them as well as talking to them and I have tried to be their friend but they just won't accept me on a whole. Is it my personality? Is it the way I carry myself in front of them? Is there any way of knowing what they really want from me or expect from me? Why is it so hard for me to be accepted into any social groups! Do you have any suggestions on how I can make friends who will accept and like me for who I am?

Thank you for your time and I look forward to what advice you got for me. =) Thank you!

Dear Flustered:
Make yourself socialable, drink heavy!

A previous writer had a similar problem, hopefully she followed my advice and not wasting away with work, or watching reruns of Star Trek! Like I told her, get involved with school and community activities, sports, and special interest activities.

Good luck, Flustered! I was kidding about drinking.

Anti-socials should stay on the net like me!

If people don't like others who are just being themselves, then I really think they should just F off... Why be someone one is not just to fit in or please others???

Anyways, Chuck will always love to be your friend, Flustered. ;-)

So what do you say, Flustered?

Lori said...

Maybe you are trying to hard to make friends just sit back and relax and let someone approach you.

Take it easy Flustered, you might be trying to hard like Lori said. Nobody wants to be friends with somebody needy, always in your hair, but steer clear of Chuck!

Maybe it's the ones that you're trying to make friends with. Try a new group and remember your the new kid on the block.

Dear AL said...

Yvonne, you tell her!

Vengelyne, how could you recommend Chuck of all people? No one should have to stoop that low!

Chuck, just kidding! Now get back in your cage!

Lori, good advice!

Paul, don't forget about Jim Beam!

Verniciousknids, I bet you do! I heard you two were buddies!

Jonathan, nobody bashes Chuck but me! Alright!

Rasbre, but what if she doesn't have a watch?

Rose knows what she's talking about, so listen up, Flustered! Dammit! :)
