Not sure any more since I haven't had to make any in a while, any new friends I make are through mutual friends i.e. parties etc
When I joined Middle/High School I knew nobody at all, as in not anyone from my old school went here. I was just myself tbh, didn't insult anyone, was shy since I knew no-one plus it was an all boys school and I'd get the shit kicked out of me any second. I made a lot more friends in college when we merged with an all girls school, was more extroverted and thus made more friends and more social circles.
