Do you consider making friends easy?
I want to know how other people feel about this.
Do you consider making friends easy or hard? Why?
Why do you think someone would feel the opposite way?
What would you do if you found/find making friends difficult?
What do you do when you meet someone who is a loner?
What percentage would use say fit into each category (it’s easy/it’s hard)?
Sorry there’s so many questions.
Thank you for your answers.

Making friends is very, very difficult.
We better realize first what is a friend and how to behave as a friend, then go ahead as a friend to all people, then many will respond to our friendship.
I understand friendship as love, humility, sincerity, cooperation, sharing, encouraging, forgiving, judging not…We require these qualities from ourself, not from our friends. We will have friends from people of all ages, not only from our peers. Even our parents, our relatives, our neighbours…will become our friends. Pray for your success.

In reality, we don’t have to seek for friends, because all people are our brothers and sisters. But due to lack of knowledge in the Age of immaturity, we considered other people as aliens, or even strangers, cheaters, enemies, so it is very hard to make friends with them or expecting them to be friendly to us. Nowadays, there are more suspicion than trust, so that many Americans claim the rights to possess guns for self-defence! When discussing about friendship, we usually think of a very narrow association with trust and understanding.
I am very thankful to Baha’u’llah for revealing to us about this Age of maturity of the human race. Years ago, when I travelled, many people had received me with warmer welcome than mere friendship, although we only met for the first time. Now, my children and grandchildren also bathe in the same atmosphere of love. Yes, we have no enemies; all are our friends, or at least our befriended strangers. Without knowing one another before, we are maintaining some distance, but that is not suspicion, hatred, enemity; it is only potential fellowship, friendship, brotherhood.
In the real life, as well as here on the cyberspace, I cannot count the great number of friends, and I do not know one name to be told as enemy. By their behaviours, I believe that those great hearts are practically expressing more wonderful feelings about friendship than what I am writing.
