Whether you've been super-tight with the same pals for years या have a rep for doing your own thing, आप can never have too many friends. आप don't have to adopt a fake "LIKE ME!" attitude या run for Miss Popularity, believe it या not, just being yourself is the best way to get in good with new फ्रेंड्स who are perfect for you!
So where exactly are आप supposed to meet these great new pals? Sitting in your room isn't going to make it happen! Start द्वारा getting involved in the activities and interest आप already प्यार whether it's an online Winx प्रशंसक club या a local वालीबाल, वॉलीबॉल league. Being the new kid in the group will feel weird at first, but remember, you're all there because आप share the same interests. What could be a better ice breaker? If आप think you're already way involved and still aren't connecting with people, it might be time to step back and re-evaluate how आप act around others. Don't be too haughty या condescending. It is far और important to be nice than be interesting. Instead of heading straight घर after a game, grab a पिज़्ज़ा, पिज्जा with the team. The और time आप invest in getting to know others, the easier it is for them to see आप as an A-list friend.
PS: आप need not dress up in dandy clothes या wear loud make up to attract people. और 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 आप could pass around a sign-up sheet या 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 या interesting? Which people in the room have आप 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 या क्विज़ one another. Bring snacks and share what's going on in your life. You'll have new फ्रेंड्स before आप know it.
Say you're seriously crushing on a guy, would आप run up to him and announce आप two are now a couple and you're now going to spend every single दिन together? Um, not unless आप want him to run in the other direction. The same goes for making friends: आप want to take things slowly at first. Wait until आप feel comfortable talking to each other during band practice या on the walk घर from the पुस्तकालय before आप suggest getting together. Skip high-pressure या potentially awkward situations, like your grandpa's 85th birthday bash.
Opt for something casual: "So, have आप 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 और 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 आप have just met, ई मेल old फ्रेंड्स who have moved away, drop in occasional sms just to say 'hi'.
Old या new... Last but not the least - don't forget old friends. If they have moved away या if आप have moved away, be in touch with occasional phone calls and emails. Don't leave old फ्रेंड्स for the sake of new ones.
