DD has had a million "opportunities" to make new friends over the years. She was really good at it when she was younger. Now that she's a teen, it's clearly a stressor rather than fun. So my advice would align with everyone else's here. Build on what you have. Work on building a strong network of friends who are, in both quantity and quality, really awesome. If possible, avoid major dislocations that upend the entire network; those are really hard on kids.

ThyPeace, every close friend of DD's has moved, or DD changed schools. She has one close friend left. It's been unpleasant.
