Many of us struggle with the thought of making new friends when we leave home or move to a new place. Here are some pointers to help you on your way!
Be yourself Real friends will like you for who you are, not who you try to be! If you put on an act when you first meet, then you will have to go on playing a part. Given time the other person will realise you were acting and be very disappointed. It may well mean you then lose a devloping friendship
Spend more time around with other people You are not going to meet people sitting at home reading a book or, dare I say it, sitting in front of a computer. Go to places where you can meet other people – even a trip to the supermarket can bring you into contact with others.
