How do you make friends in SWTOR?

Hello everyone,

I have been playing the game for a while now, and I have reached almost level 30, participated in every flashpoint and group quest available to my level and met lots of new people.

I am on The Progenitor server, which is PVE RP (EU), the main reason being I enjoy to socialise whenever I can, and make new friends who are on a similar wave of thoughts.

I am shy by nature, so it can be a bit hard for me to just jump in a group of people who are RPing, or in the middle of a conversation, I also find it a little rude if you are uninvited.

The lack of chat bubbles also makes it hard for me to properly follow the events that are taking place before my eyes, even though I made a tab just to receive social messages.

I am getting a little worried to reach level 50 and not having made even a proper friend, and no, I do not count those you +add after a flashpoint, as I do not think someone can truly become friends like that, since you usually never hear from them again anyways.

I am also not asking to join a guild because, I believe RP or socialising should occur anywhere at any point, and not just organized by people prior a meeting.

Now, I am obviously not asking, how do you add friends to your friend list, but how do you personally make friends and socialise?

Best way is to get involved in several guilds, move on if it's not doing it for you and find another until it clicks.
You'll find people along the way that you just don't want to leave.
It can be very daunting especially if you don't have any RL friends playing with you.
But most of the time everyone is very open and friendly.
Talk to people, ask questions, be considerate

I've found the best way to do this is with your friends list. Just check in with a couple of them whenever you sign on. See how they're doing, what they're up to and if they need any help. That approach has always worked well for me.

Are you a Girl? No? Your SOL.

Yes? Make sure everyone knows that. You'll have friends in no time... Even if it is only 15 and 16 year old boys.

I like to offer my "goods" in the Catina (hope I spelled that right?), seems to work well.
