Hi everyone. Does the phrase たくさん友達が手来たら、うれしいです mean "I would be happy if I made a lot of friends" or "I would be happy if I had a lot of friends" (or neither)?

TY.

Neither, since you did a typo. Try to find it yourself.
That is supposed to mean the former for the correct sentence.

Right. 来たら in kanji, not 来たら.;)

EDIT:
Incidentally, it's more likely "I'm happy if I make a lot of friends" since that's a simple conditional, and not the subjunctive.
