looking for a reason to make friends ? i don't think thats the right approach. You just make friends with people you like, admire or comfortable around. All of my friends in real like are like 5 to 7 years old and i dont think there was a reason for us to be friends, it just happened before we realized.
I just like having a friend that listens to my ranting even if they don't relate to what I'm saying or someone that is patient and has a good sense of humor. I've only had one friend like that in real life but she was my best friend.
