How to make friends?
« on: May 25, 2006, 11:42:51 AM »
Hi mates,
I wonder how can one make friends through the Internet.. I tried all known to me methods (ICQ, MSN, Chat Rooms) to meet someone through this electronic medium, but unsuccessfully. In most cases I was just ignored.
 I've been living in Birmingham for almost half a year and I didn't make any friends..
I'm not a type of person which goes to pubs and socialize in this way. (maybe I should?)

So if you have any ideas connected with the topic
Or people who live in B'ham long enough could write a 'HOWTO' guide for newcomers.

ie.
List of Clubs you would recommend, a kind of Hot Spots for friendship.
or just leave your 'e-numbers and e-addresses'  so that anyone willing to enchance its social life could do it.

Cheers! :D

Get yourself registered with somewhere like www.mingleville.com or faceparty.com

Youll soon have a whole database of friends to choose from :)
Theres no place like 127.0.0.1

I'm a net geek, I stay inside all day at my computer.  If you want to talk to me, it's [email protected].  I've lived here all my life, and personally I rather like wandering around the shops and the BMAG randomly chatting to people.  Most people who work in the City Centre are bored stiff, and like talking.

Speaking of working in the City Centre, I should go to bed.
