I wish I could make friends. At best I make acquaintances. Growing up we moved a lot. My older brother could walk into a new school and have three or four friends the first day. I was lucky if I had someone I could talk to and liked me before we moved again.
I never had trouble getting a date or being friendly with girls. Different dynamic. If there was a girl I was interested in I would ask her out, she either said yes or no.
Somehow going up to guy and saying, "Do you want to be friends?" Doesn't work.
