Well first you act nice, and ask their name.  Talk a little, learn what they're interested in.  You could share a snack, or do something together.

Invite them to your house, click on open LAN while you're in your singleplayer world and tell them to check the server list for LAN servers.

To those who want others to click the green arrow if they helped: The arrow is actually white, the square around it is green!

You clearly don't understand the concept of LAN. LAN stands for local area connection, and the LAN feature in minecraft opens up your single player world to everyone on the same network as you.  The easiest way to do this is to set up a wifi network and have your friends connect to it.  There is no such things as "lan friends".

Lol...Ok firstly LAN "Local Area Network" in order to play with your friend you have to be in the same house,to make a lan server you pause ingame And Press "Open To LAN" then ask your friend to open his multi-player screen and u can all play....Hope you understand lol.And no you dont have to use the same wi-fi

They would have to come to your house. Or you setup a server. <---- Don't ask here, google it.
