Improving Your Social Life
Look approachable. Keep a smile on your face, stay well groomed, and wear decent, clean clothes.
Invite friends over to your house. This is a great, low-key way to practice your social skills in a location that you feel comfortable.
Be yourself, not who you think other people want you to be. Lots of people are «normal,» and no one wants the same friend over and over.
Start with a simple «hello.« It is amazing how many people ignore this simple greeting. If you are shy, however, this is a great, low-pressure way to show that you are interested in making friends and being kind.
Make eye-contact and remember their name. This shows that you are interested in them and are sincere about becoming friends.
Focus more on listening and less on talking. It is impossible to relax when you are telling yourself to relax. Instead, focus on the other person in the conversation.
Give answers longer than one-word. When someone asks you a question, don’t dismiss it and move on to another question. Take some time to elaborate on it.
Give the occasional compliment. Flirting, whether with potential dates or friends, is simply a way to show your interest in someone.
