Have you read the cover article on Time this week? Makes me wider ... Are we putting too much emphasis on "social life"? Certainly, those tips on making friends would drive an introvert like me WAY over the edge!

I actually like this article - it is way too easy to just become hermit-like, and making friends as an adult is so much more complex than when you're in school. I try to get involved in different volunteer activities where like-minded people gather - but I also force myself to be a little more outgoing where ever I am - just a simple hello makes you seem so much more approachable!

you are so right about the simple hello (or smiling, if you're on the shy side)! honestly, that can make me feel so much better.

cool - you're welcome! just remember that everybody has moments where they feel that nobody likes them.
