With college on the way, leaving old friends behind, the topic that seems to leave everyone a bit frazzled is making friends, surprisingly more so than what classes to take. I’ve always viewed friend making as something that just happened, but of course something you welcomed. And then there are my friends. I wouldn’t call them deluded but something has to be up when they sit hungrily, waiting to Facebook chat with a friend prospect, though with nothing to say. They want to make a friendship out of absolutely nothing but a wish that something in common will make them attached at the hip. I don’t think there can be an art to friend making, but rather techniques to keep them. I think making friends is something that’s spontaneous. When you chase things, won’t they get chased away instead? – Eric
