There are three very important cautions on how to find people to be your friends:
1. When you are working on finding friends, keep your romantic inclinations out of the way. If you bring up romance when your stated goal is to find friends, you could easily ruin the friendship. Just make it very clear from the beginning that you only want to give and receive friendship.

3. You will need to provide your email address to people so they can befriend you.
