Hi girls 🙂 I’m just wondering if the way I go about making friends is childish or if the kids I want to be friends with would think that. I usually say “You seem like a good friend to have” or today I messaged a really nice boy in a couple of my classes; I asked him how he liked the class, I told him that we should talk more at school and that he seemed really nice. I’m confused tho because at school sometimes I just have a feeling he wants me to wait for him and talk to him, but he won’t accept my friend request and it says he’s seen my message. What did I do wrong and how can I do better for next time? Is this a good way to make friends? It’s the only way I know how and I know it makes people feel good. And if he doesn’t like me, why not? He smiles, and at least doesn’t look mad when I look at him in class and we make eye contact a lot. Sometimes he looks away, sometimes he doesn’t

I thought was I said was really sweet, so why would that put him off? The other kid I said that to was really happy, and helped me become his friend. I love it when people do that. Plus, I think God would want us to help each other out like that. We”re all friends following him together 🙂 Thank you so much for your help and let me know if there’s something I need to improve in this area!

I don’t think that it’s childish at all, but it might just be coming off a little bit too strong. It’s really sad, but now a days when girls are nice to guys, it is often mistaken for flirting, and that might be what happened. Here’s a 2015 guy translator:
“You seem like a good friend to have” = “I like you”
“We should talk more at school” = “I like you”
“You seem really nice” = “I like you”
I would say to avoid the misinterpretation, try to stay away from trying to start friendships online. It’s much better done in person, trust me. Maybe in class just start a casual, small talk conversation and get to know each other without being blatant about the fact that you really want to be friends with him. Some people find that others are “too friendly” and that can scare them off. You aren’t being childish, just friendly, and not all people know how to deal with that 🙂

oh. Thank you! I will keep definitely keep that in mind for next time! Is there a way to let him know I didn’t meant it that way? And he might not even talk to me or ignore me in class now. I just thought I was being really nice, like with a friend

I would say just start over and casually talk to him every once in a while and see how it goes. I wouldn’t try to explain it to him if I were you, and just move on and act like that awkwardness didn’t occur 😛
