Well, I get concerned that my voice will quaver and that I'll shake and stutter, because sometimes I am shy. I try to be assertive despite my shyness and take the initiative when being introduced, and put out my hand to shake the other guy's hand. One time I met a TV news anchor. I immediately asked him if I could shake his hand. I don't want to make him overconfident; or make anyone overconfident, for that matter, simply by expressing compliments, but I find it's a great technique for breaking the ice. I am also concerned that the other person is shy. There's nothing wrong with being shy. I know what it's like. But what if I were to say something and there is no answer in return? Well, meeting people can be a frightening experience, but I like people, I try to make new friends, and I get along very well with other writers and artistic people. Most of all, what I am concerned about when meeting someone new is being rejected. I value friends. I wish I had a boyfriend. I have both been rejected by friends and boyfriends in the past. Friends rejected me when we went off to college; suddenly they didn't have any time for me because they were studying all the time. And then they got married. And had children. Started a life of their own. Boyfriends rejected me because they said I was too emotionally fragile. So, I take this to heart and wonder if I could work on emotional strength. I get so lonely. That's why I joined this site. What I look for the most in another person, and I am both looking for a friend and a boyfriend, is a listening ear and a smiling face. I don't want to do all the talking, though. I know I should be a listening ear, too. And I should smile at people. Well, to wrap it up, the things I am most concerned about when meeting someone new are: my own shyness, the other person's shyness, and rejection. And I think that one ought not to be too sensitive about rejection, because it's all part of life. At this point in my life, I am actively seeking friends and hope to mingle just enough to find those golden relationships. Thank you. Have a great evening. BTW, I like painting, writing, reading, music, tv and movies, a little bit of exercise, journaling, talking on the telephone, getting to know people, and hanging out. I think a great relationship is give and take, both of us having a willingness to work and be diligent about our work. They say marriage takes work; well, it's true. We all have our own lot in life, and what makes a marriage survive is the attitude of, "We're in this for the long haul." If you have the attitude of, "Well, let's try and see how things work out," it's going to fail. Perseverance. Have a shared activity like religious services. The game of life, really, is perseverance and doing something constructive. Not everyone gets married. That's your choice. But everyone, everyone needs support to be healthy and happy. My advice? Have faith. Talk it out, with the right people. I do like having friends. I realize there are not many people active on this site, but perhaps someone, somewhere out there will read this. Thank you, and have a wonderful evening.

Find friends / Re: Creative Questions to Ask A Girl/Boy
« on: May 04, 2017, 06:33:55 AM »
I think it is very creative to start small talk and then to ask questions such as "what books do you enjoy reading," or, "what do you like to do for fun?" These may seem like same-old same-old questions, but I read somewhere that it is good to start conversations with small talk, like, "how's the weather?" or, "What have you heard about the traffic?" And then we can get into what kind of a relationship we are looking for. Friendship? Dating? Pen pals? Long-term pen pals for short-term pen pals? Looking to exchange ideas about creative projects, or career networking? You know what? I do not think there are many people on this forum. But I'll tell you what. It's been a rainier season here in Seattle than usual. I enjoy reading all sorts of different genres; in fact, I am a writer, myself. My objective in finding friends is for an email pen pal, not necessarily for short-term or long-term, but just take it how it goes. Having conversations sometimes means giving specifics about ourselves, but I know that there is such a thing as Internet safety, and you don't want to reveal too much until you trust the other person. I make friends easily. A boyfriend would be nice, but I am mostly looking for a friend. Well, every time I've had a boyfriend, there has always been a friend between us, a friend whom we share. This friend wouldn't dare try to steal my boyfriend, but nevertheless, it's fun to spend time not just alone with each other, but also hanging out with a platonic pal. So, my objective is not only to make pen pals, but also to get a boyfriend, someone other than my pen pal. We would share backgrounds about each other: where we're from, how old we are, where we went to school, and friends we've had in the past. My goal in joining the Friendship Forum was to meet a new person, because the world out there can be lonely, to have email conversations, and to talk about what kind of guy I am interested in, and how to get him. I was so talkative; I hope it wasn't too much!

Find friends / Looking for an Email Friend
« on: February 08, 2017, 05:58:41 AM »
Hi everyone, I am a 38-year-old female looking for someone to trade email addresses with. Before you make your decision, I am from the USA, I like to write fiction, and I am looking for a female friend and also a boyfriend, though I realize this is not a dating site. I got out of my last relationship about a year and a half ago. And one of my friends passed away last year, and I really need to move on with my friendship life, too.

Hi, I just joined this forum not too long ago, but I noticed there aren't many people here. I am 38 years old, unmarried, I live with roommates, and we have a dog. I would love to exchange emails with you. Nice to meet you.

Hi everyone,

I guess everyone is wondering why someone would join this forum. I suppose loneliness late at night is one of the culprits. Internet can be one way of reaching out to people, even though I like to talk face-to-face with people, too. I look forward to getting to know you all. Have a good night.
