This is going to sound very insensitive, but really what happening to ATS that some guy can log on and say “I have no friends” and get 35 flags, its like the “look at my pretty picture threads” and the “I am the start child threads”, not what I joined ATS for. At the very least this should be in BTS.
But no now it’s full of a bunch of equally lonely people attempting to do the Good Samaritan thing by giving this guy advice. Each one trying to outdo the other over how much good advice he or she can give whilst being so nice their avatar should be on the cover of every thank you card on earth. It’s like some of you have just been bursting with anticipation to make use of some of those memorised Chinese fortune Cookies you’ve been eating alone for the past year looking for inspiration. This thread has became full of do gooders competing with each other in a who is the nicest of the nice competition, its selfish and not doing this guy any favours.
OP, this will sound harsh but somebody needs to say it, pull you together and get a life. If you have a job, just start actually talking to your work colleagues and ask about going out for a pint. You are bound to have at least one person you sort of know so ask him or her out for a drink or even try talking to them.
PS, why did I not get the memo about ATS starting up a lonely hearts forum.

I don't mean to sound insensitive but friends don't just appear into your life, it takes time and effort to develope a relationship with another person. After all the effort, its worth it, I have friend who are more like brothers to me. I read a post by someone who said that Humans like to be alone, this is not true we are pack animals.
