Here are some tips on how to be happy:
#1. Don't lie. Ever. Don't even embellish. Pretend you meet someone that you might like. PLEASE avioid the temptation to make yourself look good by stretching the truth. If anything were to ever happen with said person, you'd have to confess which could possibly result in making that person change their mind about the "something" that's happening. Or, you could always try to cover up the lie, which in turn forces you to lie more to cover up that lie, and lie again to cover up the lie that covered up the lie....it only gets worse. Don't do it!
Of course, this applies to life in general; not just potential-significant-other situations. That's just the one that's foremost on my mind for reaons that do not need to be elaborated at present.
#2. Find your nearest local library and read some good books. Books are fun. Read them.
#3. Eat chocolate.
#4. Spend time with family. If you don't like your family, learn to, and then spend time with them.
#5. Don't be dramatic. That's just annoying.
