How does one of us make friends?

Ive tried to fit into many different groups at my new school. None of them are working. So i decided to be a Lone Wolf and show i do not care about anyone else. But its hard and i actually do care about making friends. I want friends. even just one would be superb. What do i do? I'm stuck.

Im 17 btw.

It's difficult to make friends sometimes, i'm 21 and i'm in a similar situation. Since leaving college i've lost contact with nearly all friends and it is quite depressing, as i just go to places on my own and struggle to find groups in order to make new friends.

Being shy like myself doesn't help either, but i would keep looking and keep at it. I keep telling myself, things happen for a reason & they will work out when you least expect it.

Throw the whole group/image mentality out the window and just be friendly.
Ack, seems like I can't edit my posts. To clarify I don't mean going out of your way to make friends by "being friendly," I mean to simply be nice to people that you end up in a conversation with.

I struggle too and as a result have no friends.

However i'm thinking 1 way is to fake it. I think thats where the key is with making friends. Say things people want to hear, talk about things they are into and they will think you are worthy to have as a friend
