Meeting real buddies

Your thoughts (3) 3 ways to make friends for life

Friends… aren’t they the coolest to have around?!
Someone your age you can gist with, learn with and just be yourself with.

We all need that one buddy who we can giggle with about embarrassing moments.

Someone we can tell our deepest thoughts. Someone who totally gets us.

Meeting friends like this isn’t exactly a piece of cake but it is possible.

Want to make new friends? Here are 3 things that can help

Be friendly
To make friends you need to be friendly yourself. You need to be open and interested in other people. People love to be friends with someone who wears a smile and is nice to them.

Be Yourself
You make real friends when you are the real you. You don’t have to talk, walk or dress in a particular way. Let people get to know you for you. Don’t try to pretend to be someone you are not.


Take a step
Once you are out there with people around you, someone has to make the first move. If the other person is quiet, take the first step to say hello.

Get to know each other a little better! Share something about yourself, and then give the other person a chance to share about him/her. Something easy, like asking how the day is, or what they did today / in the past week is a great conversation starter. Once the ice is broken, it’ll be easier to connect.
