Laughter! If you want to turn an acquaintance into a friend, make them laugh. Laughter encourages people to open up and this is the secret to making friend. People in the study were more likely to disclose something personal about themselves after laughing together. And the more personal information shared the friendlier people become.

Then there's this about friends

In Japan, one can rent cats, buy used underwear from a vending machine, and visit cuddle cafes to cuddle.

Japan's newest service: Rent-a-Friend. The rent-a-friend engages in small talk over dinner. Listens on a long walk. Or simply pretends the two of you are in love and absolutely on the verge of getting married. The cost? About $365 a day.
