Join A Club
Joining a club is another great way of meeting new people and making new friends. Clubs help you meet people of all ages who share common interests. Although you don’t need to share common interests with someone to make friends with them. Remember that. You could just like to see the person, or may like the way they think, what ever the case may be, clubs are a great way of making new friends, regardless of who you are.
Speak To People
Speaking to people is fundamental when trying to making friends. You can join clubs, volunteer and go to school, but you still won’t make any friends if you don’t actually speak to people. Speaking to people is a great way of creating long lasting friendships. You need to get yourself in the habit of speaking to people. You can speak to anyone. The person sitting next to you in the bus, a store clerk, the delivery man, people in your club, people you don’t even know, don’t be picky. The more you speak to people the more confident you will become.
Hang Out With People More
If you want to make friends, you first need to put yourself out there somehow in order to meet people. That is very important. Sitting alone will not increase your chances of making friends. Try to always sit near people. This will tremendously increase your chances of making new friends. Try to invite your friends and people you’re not sure about over often. This will help you get to know someone new, thus fostering togetherness. Try to have movie nights and go out with friends more. This will help you make more friends. Going out allows you to meet new people, thus increasing your chances of making new friends. Don’t be afraid to hang out with people you don’t know. For you see, people you don’t know are often the nicest people you will ever meet, and they could potentially be future best friends/ lovers. Keep that in mind.
It is imperative that you are able to keep a secret. In order to make friends you must be trustworthy. A good friend is one that can keep a secret forever. One of the best things about having a friend is that you have someone to whom you can talk about anything. Always keep that in mind. Always try to be that friend that is trustworthy and can keep a secret, not one that loves to talk and spread peoples secrets. That is the worst.
Many people are not very confident. They are shy, timid and afraid to start a conversation. Make the effort and start talking no matter how uncomfortable it feels. Be more confident in yourself. No one will embarrass you or tell you No if you simply say “hey”or “how are you” Try it out today. Try telling someone you like to see “hey, how are you” and find out for yourself. You may just make a new friend.
Always Be Encouraging
A very good friend encourages their friend. They will remain with them in both good as well as bad times. When trying to make new friends, its very important that you be encouraging and supportive. This will help increase your chances of them becoming your friend. Never be disrespectful or discourteous, to a potential new friend.
Don’t Be Rude
It is very important to remember never be rude, when trying to make a new friend. People generally don’t like others being rude to them, and if you’re trying to make friends, that is not the best way to go about it. Always try to be polite, well mannered, generous, nice, and a good listener. These are the qualities a person looks for in a friend. Keep that in mind.
Always Look Good
Your appearance is very important when trying to make new friends. Some persons may believe appearance doesn’t matter but that could not be further from the truth. People don’t want to be friends with ugly, nasty smelling people. Remember that! People generally want to be friends with the most beautiful people in the world. Therefore you must try to always look good, smelling sweet, hair well done, well shaved, and for the girls, make up well done, completely shaved, hair well done and smelling sweet. Strive to always look your best, like a model anywhere you go. This will increase your chances of making a new friend. Never leave your house looking a mess. This is one sure way of not making a new friend.
