For a few individuals making new friends is easy however for the majority of us regular people it could be a bit hard. The following is an article dedicated to finding and making potential friends. The first thing for you to try and do is to look for the acquaintances that you have already got. Acquaintances can either be people inside your classes, friends of people that you have gotten along with in the past, individuals who you seldom hung out with but can see more regularly or old friends that you have gradually lost communication with because of unkown reasons. This could also be people that you could have talked briefly a couple of times at school, work, in a local shop/store or elsewhere that you have socialized before. Immediately the next time you notice them, start a conversation with him or her, like usual and talk with the person for at least a minute or two so that they can get at ease with conversing with you again or maybe comfortable in general.
Speak about yourself, things such as pastimes, school etc. but the conversation should not be one-sided so allow the other person chat about their passions and life in general as well. Searching for commonalities is a large benefit here because that means there’ll be more of a comfort level and trust if you do not see any commonalities that’s fine too. Right after having a nice conversation start to exchange contact details to ensure you guys is able to keep in contact. When you finally got that all down, start calling them out to do a hobby with you, ideally a thing you two both prefer. It needs to without a doubt be a social event like a concert, any sport activity or something in common so that you guys could discuss and share your experiences amongst each other. Right after hanging out with the person a couple of times the comfort level in which you share with the other person will reach a point where you could talk and laugh around freely.
The uncomfortable silences that you had before should be definitely gone and also the “pressure” to continue the conversations becomes unapparent. Keep socializing and spending time with them and very soon the acquaintances you used to have will certainly turned into your new friends. It is very important when you’re in the stage of the budding friendship(you’ve hung out with them a couple of times) that you accept or suggest more arrangements in order to meet with him or her and continue doing more activities because it is at that stage that trust starts to generally be built. After a month or so(give or take), you’ll have a brand new friendship and if he/she is the right sort of friend that shares all your passions and interests, it’s going to be a good and lasting friendship. This is a great a to start being social.
