If you need to ask the question, "What do you all consider an interesting person to talk to?" to a random group of anonymous Internet posters you obviously are not one. If you need to ask the same group of people how to creep into groups of people you are obviously not an interesting person. It is fucking creepy that you text people you barely know that you met by creeping into a group of people. It is obvious you do nothing interesting as you have to ask this same group of people how to text the people you're creeping an inducement to hang with you.

If you were interesting and non-creepy you'd have friends. In fact, maybe if you were just not creepy you'd have friends, as I've known groups of non-interesting people that hung out together. So maybe you're focusing on the wrong issue? Maybe the question should be, "How do I stop creeping people out?"

It sure doesn't read like you hung out with that person. And if you used to hang out with him/her then you've hung out with people before, therefore know how to get people to hang out with, therefore this thread is fatuous.

I agree with this advice. Looking for friendship is not unlike looking for a romantic partner. The more you seem to actively look for it, the more it will elude you. You really should focus on yourself, such as developing your skills and hobbies. One thing you can do is be sure to have a routine: for example every Saturday morning you have coffee at the same place, or every Wednesday night you go to an activity or club of some kind. The people invovled in it might not want to be your friend immediately, but you will be "out there" and living life. Friends are like butterflies. They will show up when you least expect it. Another important thing is to know how to recognize a potential friend when you meet them. It should be totally natural, and not forced. You will feel it.

 

I know it is not easy to be alone a lot, and to feel awkward. But if you work on improving yourself and being positive, your life will become positive in every way. It sounds cheesy, but it really is true.

 

People are attracted to happy, healthy people. The more you smile, the less you complain, the more people will like you. Nice guys don't always finish last. Good luck!

whatever you say, it should be relevant to your context (location, time, surroundings, etc). it should be somewhat interesting or funny, and honest. and before doing anything, you should judge the likely response of the other person by observing their behavior, facial expression, body language, etc: don't disturb someone who doesn't want to be disturbed.

You really expect an actual friendship to go from 0 to 60 in a few weeks? Have you ever had a real friend?
