Friendships are hard to make. They take time. So I, naturally the most popular girl EVER, am here to help.

Making friends is easy! Just follow these steps.

Step 1: Choose a victim–er– potential candidate. They should be appealing and have benefits you could take total advantage of. (If they have friends, BONUS; YOU’LL have friends.)

Step 2: Familiarize yourself with their internet profiles. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr; if they got it, you can see it! Be sure to memorize their deets: name, date of birth, family members, social security number, etc. The more the better.

Step 3: Start pretending to like things they like. They love bungee jumping? YOU love bungee jumping. They love their boyfriend/girlfriend? YOU love their boyfriend/girlfriend. What can I say, sharing is caring. Don’t try being yourself, because face it, yourself isn’t friends with them. Am I right or am I right?!

Step 4: Alter your appearance. People tend to socialize with others of the same level of attractiveness, so try your best to steal their look in any way you can. Pay attention to details. Details are EVERYTHING. Imitate hair partings, clothing trends, what car they drive, etc. If there is any hesitation about whether or not you guys are clones, YOU ARE NOT DOING ENOUGH.

Step 5: Use every opportunity to talk to them. Weasel your way into their social circles. Add input and comments whenever there is a moment of silence. Reactions help! Practice typical facial expressions in the mirror like “Oh no she didn’t!”, “I can’t believe he would do that!”, and “I’m so sorry your cat died.” If you’re ever confused about what to say or what expression to portray and there’s a silent moment, take the opportunity and laugh. Laughing is a sign of friendliness. Laugh like a crazy madman, trust me, they’ll like it.

Step 6: Meet their parents. There’s nothing that says “Serious Friendship” like meeting the parentals. Try to befriend them as well by calling them “Mom” and “Dad”. Be the family.

Step 7: Steal their identity. Face it, there’s no point for them anymore; you are them. Why not steal their lives, no one will notice the difference. Making it legal is even better. Just remember the basement door should be locked at all times.

Well, I hope that helped you antisocial children. Have fun and enjoy your life…Or should I say, THEIR life. *wink*
