How to make new friends

I think that is a fact –  When you’re a kid, making new friends is easy. There are a lot of cool activities where you meet other kids and make them to be your friends. Everything can start from a game, a dream, a candy or a toy. Things work differently when you are an adult, cause usually, you can feel shy to ask someone: “Do you want to be my friend?”

“Friends can make you feel that the world is smaller and less sneaky than it really is, because you know people who have similar experience.’’ This quote proves that we discover the world through our friends. A good idea is to make new friends that will bring more color in our lives.

Here’s a short list of tips from Pulse Radio that will give you the boldness of talking to the unknown people and being open to the world

Say cheese

Seriously,  this is the tip that we adore.

We’re including smiling in top of the list because it’s a more powerful tactic for making connections than you might believe.  People who smile, as opposed to folks with neutral faces, are perceived as more attractive, kinder, and happier, and therefore more approachable. Be you, an open and possitive person. Don’t be a stranger.

Join a club.

Be yourself. When you pursue hobbies and activities you enjoy, you have a good chance of meeting people with similar interests. Chase Your Passions, Not People! Look up local teams or running clubs. If you are doing something regularly, you’re likely to see familiar faces. You could even volunteer for a local mentoring program, somewhere you’re passionate about. Make friends while making the world a better place? Win, win.

The key here is making sure you’re doing something that you actually want to do. If you join a group or take up a cause, make sure it’s one that you find personally fulfilling. Try new things with the idea of living life to the fullest, rather than being on a mission to find new friends.

 

Ditch your phone.

When you’re waiting to meet someone at the bar, resist the urge to scroll through your Instagram or Facebook feed. Also, stop texting when you’re waiting in line or on a bus. The more eye contact you make with people, the more likely you’ll be to interact with them. Keep in mind that friendships can develop as a result of simply saying “hello.” Just learn how to cherish every moment, don’t let the internet steal your time. Real-life friends are more interesting than those on facebook.

Go explore.

Sometime, It can be scary to go out on your own in the city, but is perfect to make you feel free and let you enjoy the viewes. Change your habitude, change the way you usually go at work, school or at other activities.

Take a seat in the parck, maybe with a good book or listening your favourite music, and wait for people to approach you. Be unusually, say  YES to all the new things. Get out from the routine!

 

Go to cultural events.

It’s usually affordable and sometimes even FREE. Concerts in the park, art exposition, and plays are just the beginning. And you’ll automatically have things to talk about with the people in attendance. Try to be present, interessed and nice.

While you’re building friendships be conscious about the value and joy you’re adding to the other person” says Nelson
