Feeling Lonely? 10 Tips For Turning Strangers Into Friends



Our Resident ‘Friend Maker’ Shares 10 Tips for Turning Strangers Into Friends:

  1.     Greet everyone with a SMILE 🙂
  2.     If you have a question; ask someone! You never know where the conversation will lead.
  3.     When meeting someone, repeat their name; it makes a great first impression.
  4.     Become a good LISTENER. You will learn so much about your “Stranger”
  5.     Build Trust– it’s the Foundation of Friendship.
  6.     YOU have a gift to offer. Believe in yourself.
  7.     Practice makes Perfect… the more you introduce yourself, the more COMFORTABLE you’ll feel!
  8.     Common Interests = CONNECTION. Surround yourself with Strangers that share similar passions.
  9.     Remember, EVERY person you know was at one point a Stranger 🙂
  10.     HAVE FUN. Meeting new people opens you up to new worlds.
