How Can You Make New Friends
Have you ever felt lonely in a room filled with people? Is it because no matter what you do, you just can't seem to get the courage to talk to them? Not everyone is a born extrovert. Some people find it extremely difficult to mix with new people and make new friends. Here we will talk about how you can overcome the fear of meeting new people and make new friends instantly.
You cannot sit inside the four corners of your house and say that you want to make new friends. If you really want to interact with people and make friends, you will have to go outside and meet people. The more people you meet, the more confident will you feel around them. Getting rid of any case of nervousness and uneasiness around lots of people is the first step. Secondly there are many places where you can get introduced to new people. For example join a gym, participate in social activities involving people of your age, attend more parties, smile at people around you, join social networking sites or ask a close friend to introduce you to someone. Sometimes you end up making new friends when you least expect it. For example, generally people think it is not possible to have friends at work. However, many-a-times they are proved wrong. So just keep yourself open to new friendships. Once you know where to meet new people, the next step is how to make them your friends. People having lots of friends are not necessarily very close to all of them. When you are making friends with people, don't get too close to anyone very fast. You can go out with them, but you shouldn't open up and tell them your personal secrets the first time you meet them. Talk with confidence, yet don't talk way too much. Make sure the conversation is balanced. You can start with a line about a particular topic or by asking them a question. Then depending upon what they say, you can make another statement. They say the best way to make friends is to talk less and listen more. People love to be heard. So when someone is talking, look genuinely interested.
At the end of the day, don't ever force your friendship on another person. If a person wants to be your friend, they will show interest in you. You don't need to force anyone to become your friend.
