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