How do you show investment in a friendship?

This is related to a post I made earlier. I do have these friends in my uni but I think maybe why we don't hang out as often is because perhaps I am not showing interest in the friendship. Part of me is kind of annoying them if I chat everyday, and I am not the most social guy, so I want to change that. How can I show more investment/interest in maintaining a friendship?

Put down the devices & show up. Go hang out in their room or apartment. Play hackey sack or Frisbee with them. Just chill. Study.


You invest in a friendship by physically being there.

Let me elaborate. I am in college and living off campus and not near these friends, so I usually connect with them online(college is huge, remember.) So how can I show more interest or investment with this in mind?

Send a message inviting them over or suggesting you do something together.


I went to the 3rd largest university in the world way before cell phones & e-mail. We kept in touch by spending time together.


Say something like hey I'm ordering pizza -- wanna come over? Bring beer.
