Im kind of in the middle of my ability to make friends and get along. I have gotten better and i do want to get better so i voted no because i am still not good at it, but not good enough where i can say yes.

I always find it's hard to just initiate a conversation, be it in person or online.

Not always, but I wish I could. There was a point in time when I could do it easily both online and offline, first I lost that ability offline and later online. I can still make friends and my friends who know me best know me for being a nice, quiet and caring person but my own problem is I have trouble trusting people. I can get along with just about anyone but I always have a fear that I may be screwed over.

I'm not sure. I always think I don't know how to make friends, and am nervous as heck when I'm in a new class with new people (there's nothing more terrifying than being in a class for the first time and your prof says, "Find a partner/group of people to do this assignment.").
And then suddenly, I've made a friend; and I look back and have no idea how I did it, or how to do it again.

I talk once and people think I'm the hottest shit.
I hate it. "Hey I made a joke, ok, but can you back off?"
If you can become my friend that easily, I don't think I want you as my friend. I'd rather take time to judge if I actually want to be associated with you, thank you very much.

All a person really needs is that one best friend who's so close to them it makes their family question their sexuality.

It genuinely upsets me when people are content with not having friends because that means they've never experienced how great it is to have a group of people to share experiences with whenever they want. That makes me sad :(

It is kinda hard for me, both in VR and IRL. I usually tend to myself mostly... I'm talking like 90% of the time...

I hate human contact. a friend IRL might call me and if i answer he'll talk for 30 mins and all i get in is a "mhm, yeah, gg, wow, lmao" Its annoying so i usually dont answer, hoping whatever he has to say he can just easily text me, rather than dealing with 30 mins of stupid shit.
Meh, its exhausting. Though I suppose if you are extroverted you'd say otherwise.

Online, I can make friends more easily since I don't get as easily drained in conversation.

I also tend to do it more easily with people I feel I can trust/relate to, so I'm lucky with such a skill.

IRL, I tend to be a little to... Stoic for people's tastes, but if I get to talking, I can relate easily.

I do not go out and try and make friends, online or off, but sometimes i meet one person, and we kick it right off, and then i meet other people and they like me because im trustworthy and honest. 
but thats just me.

Yes. I generally make friends pretty easily regardless if they're like me or not. My best friend in high school was on the complete opposite end of the political spectrum and we spend every day of about 3 years together laughing and screwing around, despite disagreeing on everything.

I believe several of them would yes. Several of them have helped me with my depression by listening to me and even sending me gifts. I know that I wouldd help them in whatever way I could.

"helped me with my depression by listening to me and even sending me gifts" - well, even comrades are able to do this. I think the "friend" is someone who can help you even if that mean his death.

How many of your "friends" have died for you? It's very easy to say you'd die for someone but it's a very rare instance that you're going to die in such a way someone can take your place

I spoke two comments above that friend will risk his live to help you. Yes, I have only one real friend and I know it, because there was situation when I was attacked with a knife and he rushed to help me at the risk of his life too. That is the difference between friends and comrades, who were frightened and ran away. Now you understand why I think no one can have "online" friends? Sorry if you was dissapointed by my words where I said "friend would die to help me". I will never give him to die for me, but I know that he can risk his life to save me.
P.S. sorry for my bad english. I hope you can understand my explanation)))

Not a very social person. I'm happy with the friends I have, and I'd rather let friendships happen than go out searching for them.

Online is a little different, but web friendships are easy come, easy go anyway.

I don't have friends and I don't have the capabilities to make any, good for thinking and spending time, less optimal for when your trying to learn something and noone's there to help or teach (drawing for example -@)
