In today’s world when everything comes for a price, friendship is still one thing that comes without a price tag. If you want to make new friends then this blog on life beyond the normal stuff focused on how to turn strangers into friends can help you to a considerable extent.
The first thing that you need to develop is great listening skills. Most people have a habit of telling how bad or good they feel but are not bothered about the life of the listener. In your best interests, it is highly recommended that you be a good listener. In addition to that, talk less but talk to the point. Do not indulge into gossips, remember if you cannot keep a secret or talk bad words about others, the listener gets an idea that he or she will also not be spared by your gossips and this is where you lose a good friend.
Furthermore, regularly use the name of the other person (listener when you are speaking) as that creates a good and touching impression. If you have come across a potential friend in a meet, do not forget to follow up afterwards. This may be done via email, phone call, or giving a surprise visit at the home. Always feel excited to meet people and remember people may include known and new individuals. Greet them with a smile so that they admire their presence.
In short, keep people interested and think about you in the right manner so that they can identify your presence and relationship in the right spirit. This is what friendship is all about and these small yet effective ways will surely help you win new friends.
