I wanna make some foreign friend to chat with me, but how? I'm a little shy and timid when meeting people, let alone talking with them. Should I go up to a foreigner and say "will you be my friend" and ask for their contact numbers? Is this creepy? Or will it result in misunderstanding?

Happy to chat if you would like on PM. But I'm very old and not very clever. My English and Spanish is just 'soso' my Chinese is not much good

Many on here would be happy to be your friend and help if they can sure you know that


One person on here suspects you are after his small savings tin with his life savings inside but of course that's not the case.

if you are looking for a foreigner for chat only as a language partner, do not expect them to be your friend.
if you are looking for a 'foreign friend' for 'face', do not expect them to be your friend.
be up front about this as people don't like to be deceived about intentions.

one conversation does not usually mean friendship, nor two, nor three, especially when you are looking only for a language partner.

so, why do you want a 'foreign friend'?

check out foreign expat sites in china...
you will find friends there for whatever suits you...
if you want something in life get off your backside, and do it yourself!! don't rely on others to do it for you
