Whether you've been super-tight with the same pals for years ou have a rep for doing your own thing, toi can never have too many friends. toi don't have to adopt a fake "LIKE ME!" attitude ou run for Miss Popularity, believe it ou not, just being yourself is the best way to get in good with new Friends who are perfect for you!
So where exactly are toi supposed to meet these great new pals? Sitting in your room isn't going to make it happen! Start par getting involved in the activities and interest toi already l’amour whether it's an online Winx fan club ou a local volley-ball league. Being the new kid in the group will feel weird at first, but remember, you're all there because toi share the same interests. What could be a better ice breaker? If toi think you're already way involved and still aren't connecting with people, it might be time to step back and re-evaluate how toi act around others. Don't be too haughty ou condescending. It is far plus important to be nice than be interesting. Instead of heading straight accueil after a game, grab a pizza with the team. The plus time toi invest in getting to know others, the easier it is for them to see toi as an A-list friend.
PS: toi need not dress up in dandy clothes ou wear loud make up to attract people. plus than artificial make up, simplicity attracts people. Smile often, make eye contact, don't look too tensed and listen to what others have to say!
Form a Study Group
Does your math teacher give super-hard exams? Is your history teacher always giving pop quizzes? Round up a few others from your class to study together each week. Ask your teacher if toi could pass around a sign-up sheet ou make an announcement about the group after class.
Detach Yourself From Technology. Temporarily!
Put away your cell phone from time to time and take a look around. Who seems funny ou interesting? Which people in the room have toi never talked to? Who pays attention to your ideas? Make a mental note and spend a little time getting to know these people face-to-face. When your group gets together, share notes and chat about class. Find out what your classmates like about the teacher and what they can't stand. Make flash cards together ou quizz one another. Bring snacks and share what's going on in your life. You'll have new Friends before toi know it.
Say you're seriously crushing on a guy, would toi run up to him and announce toi two are now a couple and you're now going to spend every single jour together? Um, not unless toi want him to run in the other direction. The same goes for making friends: toi want to take things slowly at first. Wait until toi feel comfortable talking to each other during band practice ou on the walk accueil from the bibliothèque before toi suggest getting together. Skip high-pressure ou potentially awkward situations, like your grandpa's 85th birthday bash.
Opt for something casual: "So, have toi seen that new movie? I thought it'd be fun to get a bunch of people together to go." Will it be totally nerve-wracking to make the first move? Probably but it'll have been plus than worth it once the ice is broken and you're out having fun with your new friends.
And then? Don't sit back, relax and expect lasting friendships to occur. It requires communication from both sides. Therefore, call up people toi have just met, email old Friends who have moved away, drop in occasional sms just to say 'hi'.
Old ou new... Last but not the least - don't forget old friends. If they have moved away ou if toi have moved away, be in touch with occasional phone calls and emails. Don't leave old Friends for the sake of new ones.
