I'd only be able to talk to them sometimes. I moved again this year and really want to be able to make friends because my mom said this time, I'm staying here til the end of high school. I tried joining clubs last year, but that made no difference! I was more friends with the person in charge of one of the clubs rather than the other people who joined. Nothing seems to work. What should I do?"
And M Girl's answer is: "Making new friends is never easy, whether it's when we move to a new town or go away to camp. Your gut feeling is right, a totes natural way to connect with people is through school activities, the catch is that will only work if your connecting over something authentically. Joining a club to join the club won't make you friends. Joining the band because you're passionate about music will help you connect with a fellow music lover and that may be the perf grounds for a friendship. Keep trying different things until you know what you're passionate about and the friends will come along with it!"
