Um... by talking to people on the forums and getting to know them? It's not like you make friends in real life by asking them "Hey, want to be friends?". You become friends gradually, talking, doing things together, etc.
Even if some stranger accepts your random friend request doesn't mean that you'll automatically be best friends from then on. I used to accept all friend requests, and most of the people never spoke to me again.
