If you are new to an area, the best way to meet new people is through work, a child's school, church, a gym, or a club where people share interests. Start by finding commonalities with a person, smile and greet them each time you see them and make casual conversation. As you get more comfortable, perhaps suggest meeting for coffee or lunch at a public place. Eventually, extend an invitation to your home or suggest a playdate for your children. KIndness is a good start, but trust in building friendships takes a little longer. Be patient.
The best way to make new friends is Smile and Be Yourself! Have you ever walked down the street and wondered why a stranger is smiling to you only to realise it is because you are smiling? It happens to me a lot when I was walking and happened to be thinking about something nice or funny. The stranger saw my smile and presumed I was smiling at them so they smiled back, just like that! Smiling is the quickest way to disarm people and make them feel safe and comfortable to be with you. It is very basic but not everyone could do it.
Rule number two, as far as I am concerned, is Always Be Yourself. There's really no point making any friends if you can't be you. On that note, I feel the best place to make genuine friends is through similar interests. Join a book club if you are a book worm, or a particular sports club or hobbit club of your interest is a great step. Hope this helps and good luck! xoxo
Most of my friends are in book clubs, and, I have to admit, I’m a little envious of the discussions that happen in these groups. If your neighborhood doesn’t have a book club, you can usually join one as part of the local library, the recreational or community center, the community college, or online, of course.
And also by Volunteering,it is a great way for people of all ages to meet others. By working together you build bonds with people, and you might meet others who have a passion for changing things the way you do .
Persue your interests/hobbies (what ever they are). Make sure you are indeed spending your time pursuing these (in other words you are active in your hobbies). I believe it does not matter if you are in a new place or your old home-town.
If you do this, you will indeed literally "run into" people with similar interests and that my friend, will introduce you to potential friends. When we were young I think we instinctively did this; now that we are older (well I'm not that old, last year I was 17 for the 3rd time. This year I am only 26 for the 2nd time) we think too much...
If you want to make new friends, you'll need to mix with new people, and the best way of doing that is by taking up a class or joining a hobby of some sort, think of something that interests you and you'll soon be mixing with people that you already have a hobby in common with. Think along the lines of - A photography club, salsa dance classes, taking a language course etc...
