It can be difficult to meet new people and make friends, especially when you move to a new city or find yourself out of your comfort zone. Even if you are well-established in your current location, you may find it difficult to make friends because your work too much or you just don’t have the social avenues to make “friend” connections.
There are several ways that you can meet people that you might not have considered in the past. Being more social can make your life more exciting and fulfilled and you won’t have time to be bored because your free time will be better occupied.
1. Expand on current relationships. You probably have several acquaintances that you see on a daily basis or a weekly basis. If you get along well with certain people, you can see if this acquaintance would like to go out and do something socially with you.
If you have common interests, you might suggest that the two of you do something together that involves your interest.
2. Make an effort to accept invitations. Sometimes people that you know may be having a barbecue or other type of social gathering. Try to ensure that you are able to attend and then show up at the appointed time. These types of gatherings often lead to meeting different people who are friends of friends.
If you meet people that you click with, you can make a plan to see them again in the future or you can invite your friends to your own event and ask them to extend the invitation to the friends that were at their gathering too.
