It is a mystery how some people make friends so easily while others struggle with it their whole lives.

Dear Amy: I’d like some feedback from you and your readers.
If I meet 100 people, I hit it off with two or three of them and launch a friendship, some 96-97 of them have no particular reaction to me, and then every now and then someone just takes an instant disliking to me — without my ever speaking a word to them.
What’s up with this? Do other people have this experience or is it just me?
I’m too embarrassed to ask my friends.
