Just curious.

I think I have 0 because I'm unable to make friends.

Some find it more easy to make friends online compared to real life, but for me is the same in both areas.

I am starting to recognise your name, i just clicked on this post because i recognised you and wanted to read more.

I think the people i have become friends with are friends because they were friendly to me.

If we want a friend, we need to keep a look out for someone who interests us, someone we like, and talk to them.

I have one friend. Have you tried starting conversations through private messaging?

Don't know about other people but I'd find messaging someone quite scary. But I do overthink everything so that doesn't help.

I don’t really have any friends here yet; I’m very new. I hope that will change but I do find social interactions difficult & I’ve never had much luck in maintaining friendships irl. I’ve just followed you, though. Would love to become friends :). Take care of yourself!

I'm the same. I find it difficult to interact with other people and the amount of friendships I've lost is frightening. I'm so full of self doubt and have terrible trust issues and I tend to wrap myself up in knots and give myself a hard time worrying if I said or did the wrong thing. I could really do with a friend though because it's a lonely life otherwise 🙂

I don’t have any friends on the forum, it’s just drains my energy trying to keep those I have in life. I’m not much for interacting and I often overthinks.

That’s just how I am, even keeping online friends is draining and I’ve lost all of them because of how I am as a person. I had once a tight group of online friends while playing games, they later fixed meet ups and did things together but I backed down all the time. Even when they all came to the city I lived in to make it easier for me. So it was totally my fault for letting it slip away. I no longer have any friends that could make laugh as much as that crazy bunch of online friends.

None, I guess. I think 30%dislike me, 10% hate me, 40% don't notice me and 20% will dislike me later on. I'm sure the reality is 98% don't care whatsoever. But I have always liked @Blackrose09 and I'm not just saying it. 🌺

Right tawny. I appreciate your quality of being down to earth and smart, more calculated than emotional etc. Maybe you have others as well but I don't know about them.
