On the other hand if you want more and better friends then avoid these things.
- Being Selfish: If you treat others as if they only exist to do something for you people will tend to avoid you. Good friendships develop when both people encourage each other to do what they are good at and want to do. Good friends help each other make good choices. Good friends make each other feel better when they are together. If you want more friends support and encourage those you want as friends. This doesn't mean support others at the expense of you following your purpose. Friendships develop when both people support each others quest to be the best they can be.
- Lack of Integrity: Say what you are going to do, and then do what you say. If people feel you aren't trustworthy they will avoid you if they have other choices. This might be the single biggest reason people don't have as many friends as they would like. Lack of integrity is often why people without a lot of friend choices find themselves together. It is because their lack of integrity leaves them without many friend choices. Sadly, they typically have no idea why. See a group of people complaining about those that are successful as if it is a bad thing? Most likely there is a lack of integrity common to all in the group.
- Not Respecting Others: If you want friends respect their things, personal space, time, and ideas. Stealing will lose friends quickly; and if I believe you steal from others (this includes stores) I will assume you will steal from me. Respecting someone's personal space is very important, in particular with male – female situations. However anyone who touches others, or gets closer than the other person wants will find themselves eventually rejected. Respecting ideas doesn't mean agreeing with the idea, but respecting it. This includes appropriately accepting complements and giving complements. Being able to say you are sorry, and being able to accept an honest apology. Showing up on time, dressing appropriately, and speaking without swearing, are all ways of showing respect that make a big difference.
