When hungry, I like to make friends.
After eating a donut, I become terribly violent.
After eating two, I might punch you, or I might befriend you.
Who am I, and what are these donuts made of?

big hint: I'm surrounded by donuts right now.

my take is that you (and your friends) are

Carbon (atoms)

When hungry, I like to make friends.

In valency theory, carbon atoms form allotropes with other carbon atoms https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Allotropes_of_carbon

After eating a donut, I become terribly violent.

(p.s.) This was the trigger for my guess, but I have always thought that hydrogen atoms look like a donut....
CH- is an instable structure, which is reactive and violent

After eating two, I might punch you, or I might befriend you.

CH2- is even more unstable and is often said to attack other atoms.
https://pubchem.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/compound/Carbene Alternatively, it can be stable when bonding with another C atom, forming C2H2 (Ethene)

Who am I, and what are these donuts made of?

You are Carbon, and the Donuts are Hydrogen (Shells) made out of electron (and proton/quarks depending on how far you want to deepdive ....)

big hint: I'm surrounded by donuts right now.

Hydrogen atoms exist freely in many substance, such as water/acid/etc .....



Now i am hungry after all these donut talks hahaha

  • $\begingroup$ You got the first part. However, your donuts don't seem to quite match up with the hint i gave. I'm looking for something more obvious that fits it. $\endgroup$ – 1848 Nov 24 '18 at 18:14

Are you?

A hungry health coach?

When hungry, I like to make friends.

As long as your new friends have food, who wouldn't?

After eating a donut, I become terribly violent.

You're angry that someone brought you unhealthy food to satisfy your hunger.

After eating two, I might punch you, or I might befriend you.

After eating two donuts you might become really angry and punch your new friend or you may have accepted that a healthy life choice is not worth missing out on donuts.
