hehe, it's a good solution
but I have worked on my social networking a lot, made tonnes of friends through them so it hasn't been entirely fruitless. However I live in a country where I'm not native, and I'd really like to be with someone from my country for compatibility reasons. And though other people from my country exist here, it's not so easy to break into their groups.
But it's still a valid suggestion, a strategy I should reconsider investing time and effort again. thanks
