There is nothing better than meeting new people that fill us with energy and show us another perspective on life. We want to share 10 simple tips to help you attract new friends today.
Don’t Assume Too Much.
Yes, we often think that we may not be kind or funny enough to others. The good news is that it’s all in your head: people are more receptive than you think.
Do Not Be Afraid.
Meeting new people can often be an overwhelming experience. The more you try to be a fun and good conversationalist, the less you will be, so be yourself.
Take A Small Step.
If you’re not yet confident enough to meet a lot of people, start with something simple: talk to someone new at work to train your social skills. Even an open pose can be a small step.
You Have To Go Out!
it’s okay. You are ready to socialize. Now, where are all the new people? You definitely have to go out: sign up for courses, workshops, groups, and activities that interest you, where you can meet interesting people.
Make The First Move.
When you feel ready to make new friends, you can jump into the ring. Use these psychological tricks to help you communicate and build good relationships.
He Who Judges, Loses.
At times, you may be prejudiced about who and what your new friends should be. However, people who don’t seem to have anything in common with you at first can turn out to be the most interesting people you’ve ever met. Give them a try.
Don’t forget that we are all divas. Learn to listen before you speak: other people want attention and to be heard as much as you do. Show that you are interested in meeting them.
Spend Time Together.
A new friendship is formed by sharing time. Dinners, parties, cinemas and other places to have fun are the best option.
Keep In Touch.
Sometimes it is difficult to keep in touch with our friends. However, it is the only way to maintain a friendship. Use your favorite media (Internet, telephone, etc.) to see what is happening in your life.
Be A Good Friend.
Help and support your friends and tell them that they can count on you.
Making the right first impression is half the success of attracting new people, and that impression depends a lot on your mannerisms.
For example, assuming a modest yet welcoming position while sitting across from someone will tell that person that you are interested in talking to them, which will instantly make them like you. Remember: body language is as important as words.
