Girl Talk: Making Friends 101

Sin título #269

Hi Dolls! I am planning on starting a new series which is going to be a "Girl Talk" and I am going to be answering your questions about general issues. Do you like the idea?
I am going to be talking from my very own experience, so I think it is good to tell you a little bit about me, before going straight to the tips: I am  a social butterfly, it is just who I am. I love talking to people and making new friends is quite easy for me. I know I am  blessed in that area and that is the main reason why I think it could be interesting  for me to write a post like this one.

  • Be a conversation starter: I know if you are shy you would be probably thinking: " Andrea you lost it... it is official" But the truth is that once you start a conversation with someone, you not only appeal more confident to that person, but you will also feel that way. Why? Because you are crossing your own boundaries. Practice makes perfect so do it to someone random and next time will be easier...I promise!
  • Ask for advice/help: When it comes to making new friends, asking for help to a shop assistant or for a song to a cute Dj is an easy opportunity.
  • Go outside!: You can study and surf in the internet at a coffee shop, which you are more willing to know someone than at home...
  • Never ever take it personally!: If someone is not responding to your talk, do not take it personally. In fact, it has nothing to do with you and your awesome social skills, it is probably just a rough day like the ones you personally experience ;)
Are you a shy person? Any tips do you want to share? Let me know in the comments or TWEET ME @shineonbyandrea I wanna talk to you and be twittahfriends ;)

  5. Aww I love the idea of this and I love the advice you've given so far. I'm a very shy person and I tend to take things way too personally, but I've certainly gotten better as I've gotten older.
