So i am a lonely person and i seek to talk to people. Do not get me wrong i have lots of people, ok not a lot , in real life who i can talk to. The thing is, some of my interests that i care about are not similar to them. I like to have peoe who are similar to me. I think there is a way, which is to talk to many people here 24/7 and never stop talking. I am sure i will find some good people who i will like to talk to. But i am lazy and i dont like yo waste so much time. My attention span is too low to even try such a thing xD

Your friend list is very big already, why don't you talk with them? You've already talked with all of them and is seeking for new people? Anyways, if you want new friends you can casually search for people with similar interests as you in the forums and befriend with them

That's for you to decide, not us. Get your shit together and interact with people in real life instead. Once you rely on the internet for major human interaction, you lose to Charles Darwin.

Find a group you're interested in that's fairly active, and get involved in the discussions there. Some groups have a Discord channel where much of their activity takes place (not my thing, but many seem to prefer it).

Go outside and interact with people constantly and eventually you will get a friend and maybe you will find love.

But if you don't feel like doing all that, you can also just fap to degenerate ugly bastard ntr futa hentai while contemplating why you are such a sad sack of shit.

Comment on their favorite anime/bring up something they like. Then take it from there, also try to keep things entertaining.

Just add the people you think are cool or interesting or whatever. Then have a conversation about stuff you have in common

I don't know about anime as a topic because I prefer to watch anime instead of discussing much about it. As for real life, you just have to keep trying to talk and frankly I try to avoid eye contact to avoid dragging conversation for too long. It's crazy how time flies nowadays.

On topic, just hit em up.

I sent a random "your profile pic is cool btw" comment to someone here four years back and it just literally started from that and we still talk daily.

Things just happen. I dont search for friends ever, they just happen like that and you never know what random person ends up clicking with you.

Friends and that just 'happen'. Like for example, someone hit me up at Discord 1 week ago and still talking about several anime!
And sometimes talking with people via Profile comments goes a long way.

I'm also lazy, but I'm putting in effort to talk with some people. Maybe you should do too? Friendship and all that goes both ways. Ganbare~!

Explore clubs that suit your tastes and interests.... When you do, you'll come across discussions and people that you can start getting into. That's one of the best ways :)

Another would be by getting used to the Forums on MAL. It's got a wide variety of topics from Music, Sports, Casual and about the things you do :)
You'll come across all types of people and you can explore different profiles too.

With some time and care, you'll already have made a good bunch of friends on this site ^^

As other users have said, there's many options to try find some friends. Finding friends to talk to 24/7 might be difficult though...

I don't have friends on here but I'm pretty sure you can try commenting on someone you found interested's profile about the things you guys have in common. Pretty sure it would work, also, give a compliment on their taste, lol.
Socializing is not the hard part - finding friends is. By that, I mean people you can both talk about intimate stuff and with whom you know each other's actual identity while staying comfortable about it.

"real life" also includes online socializing, but other than that, I agree that people come and go, regardless of offline or online. It's hard to keep someone interested for a longer period of time, so attempting to socialize is most often just a waste of time, even if it can be the most interesting one, depending on the person.

Regardless of the definition, there needs to be mutual interest if someone wants to have certain people to talk to as much as possible. And that's what fails with me, because either the other person loses interest over time, or in seldom cases, it becomes too straining for me to reply daily/more often, or I somehow manage to piss the other person off, or they end up with some issues, or they have simply found their luck/happiness elsewhere, or or or.

No. Socializing is the first step to find out who you can make friends with. It starts with you get out of the shell and speak with someone and then follow the flow.
I know very well how to socialize; I don't know how to turn that socializing into actual friendships. What's the second step and how to follow the flow without having either person drift off from it?

comment on someone's profile, or just message them. it's not hard to start a conversation, especially if the two of you share similar interests in anime, and, from that, the issue just boils down to not letting the conversation burn out - which typically isn't difficult, provided both parties are interested in the conversation anyway.

ideally, don't comment shit like "nice pfp" though; it's rare for a conversation (which leads to friendship) to stem from that alone.

Just comment on some of your friend list friends profile, and see if any of them are interested in sparking up conversations. You may have to shuffle through a few, but eventually you'll find someone on your list that has shared interests in anime/games, and whichever else.

You could try starting threads about things that you're interested in and see who responds to them. Starting a discussion like thar or on their profile if they have similar interests seems to be the way to go, anyway.

Post regularly, be thoughtful, friendly, conversational and respectful (i.e., don't be an insecure prick), comment on the same shared interests, and stay true to yourself.

Good luck! I hope you can make some good friends in a way that works for you!
