How To Make a Lot of Friends

Updated on June 23, 2011

Good relationships make life easier.  You involve doing a bit of mining to find some. That's why it can pay to make a lot of friends. Some should turn out to be treasures. So consider these suggestions to meet people and make strong, lasting friendships.  I've found many people who are already easy at making friends naturally lean to do most of the things I outline below without thinking about it.  


Step1 Be yourself.

Never put yourself behind. Sure, relationship is all about having contacts that you can use as a resource. However, don’t be a fake as you do it. Don’t just use people and last drop them when they are no longer of any benefit. Don’t put on airs or act in any way that is misleading. The best path to network, to make lasting contacts that are positive, is to just be yourself. Even if you are still shy, you don’t have to try to act overly aggressive or spontaneous. When you play like yourself, people will see you for who you are and they will be more responsible to help you out if they feel you are honest. So don’t be a jerk.

Always be yourself with confident and other people will determine. Making a bad notice about yourself only makes it Okay for other people to do so as well. As it can act as a mirror that reflects your defects back at you. So, be yourself and attract people towards you.

Step2 Open your mind

Make a goal to contact one new person every day. Then up the ante a bit! Say "hello" to those that don't talk much. Spend more time around people. At the very least, if you were feeling alone and hopeless in front, having a relationship or two should be plenty to take those feelings away.

If you require to make relationship, you first need to put yourself out there somehow in order to meet people. Friends rarely come knocking on your door while you sit at home watching Television. Open mind being good at relationship with everybody is like being a good neighbor. When you've got a lot of friends and different options competing for your time you can be more choosy.

Step3 Take it Easy

Most of the time, we know a lot of people who may not be interested in our everyday life at that particular time. That is no clue to suddenly break off all contact with them. Stay in sense of touch with people that you like. You never know what the future may bring. People that you get along with may one day be able to help you and your business out. As Well, the easiest way to naturally meet a lot of people is just to live a full, interesting life and run into lots of possible friends as a side effect.

Although, you should not fast into a deep number of friendships in a short time, particularly with people you don't know well. Investing time to growing friendly relationships is a great part of life and you won't be able to do justice to anyone if you try to move too fast with many people. It takes considerable time and effort to make a lot of friends, especially good ones whom you can trust.
