chat is one options, another is through the forums, you might comment on the same forum as a user a lot. it might be scary, but you might have to message them first. read their profile first though, some people might not be here to socialize. of course, be careful, don't give out personal information, passwords, or anything like that.

Another option is to watch the posts in the Forums. If you see someone posting that you would like to get to know better then drop them a message and say hello. Well actually more than just say hello. Tell them a bit about yourself and perhaps offer some topics you'd like to discuss with them. If all goes well then add to friend them. You need to start building some relationships if you want friends, not just sit and wait for them to appear.
You may visit the chat or forums to learn more about the craft and if there is'nt a topic you want to learn,create one asking about it.That is a convenient way to learn.
Also,you may mail any of the members here,preferably serious members for guidance on any topic.You need to take the first step yourself :)
Well the problem for me with using the chat is I use my iPhone to access this site. Even after accepting the rules and everything I still can't post in chat for some reason. That being said my main means of communication is mail and the forums.
