How To Grow And Deepen New Friendships

  How To Grow And Deepen New Friendships I found a great site on how to make friends and develop your social skills.   SucceedSocially.com is a collection of articles related to improving social skill and making friendships. It deals with shyness, and working around the problems that come from feeling that you do not fit comfortably into the norm.   Here is an extract of the writing on that site; it is about deepening and strengthening new friendships. "Just spend more time together I'll break this down further soon, but simply spending more time with someone is the backbone of becoming better friends with them. A close relationship isn't something that happens in a few hours. You need time to get to know the other person, have fun together, and become more comfortable with each other. You need time for all the relationship-enhancing things I mention below to happen. Additionally, it usually takes a while before we start thinking of someone as a

Friendship: Seven Tips for Making New Friends.

Friendship: Seven Tips for Making New Friends. This post is from Gretchen Rubin who is a thought-provoking and influential writer on happiness.  Ancient philosophers and scientists agree: strong social ties are the KEY to happiness. You need close, long-term relationships; you need to be able to confide in others; you need to belong; you need to get and give support. Studies show that if you have five or more friends with whom to discuss an important matter you’re far more likely to describe yourself as “very happy.” Not only does having strong relationships make it far more likely that you take joy in life, but studies show that it also lengthens life (incredibly, even more than stopping smoking), boosts immunity, and cuts the risk of depression. “Okay, okay,” you’re thinking, “I get it — but it’s not that easy to make new friends.” Here are some strategies to try, if you’re eager to make friends but are finding it tough: 1.  Show up .

Meeting New People – Be Approachable

Image
Meeting New People – Be Approachable So you want to make a good first impression when you meet new people at home or at work.  Yes, you know already about dressing appropriately and being polite.  But you want to go beyond that - you want to do your best to make sure that people really like you. Here are some tips; Know what your body is saying.   We all send messages with our body language.  How we stand or sit often tells other people exactly how we are feeling – we don’t need to say a word.   If you are nervous, you can get tense and sometimes your posture says “Leave me Alone” or “I’m too busy to speak to you. That isn't what you mean but it can be what others think.  So make sure you know what your body saying! Be aware of your posture and your gestures – make them welcoming.    Be open.   D on’t stand or sit hunched, or huddled up.  And don’t talk to someone with your arms crossed in front of you – they will think you don’t really want to know them.

Making New Friends

Many of us struggle with the thought of making new friends when we leave home or move to a n ew 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. Join an organisation with common interests You don't have to have a lot of common interests with people in order to make friends with them. But finding a common interest can be a way to make friends.  You can use the internet or your local library to find gr

Are you always fair?

There is a website called  goodcharacter.com  that provides educational resources for children.  It works on the principles that Your character is defined by what you do, not what you say or believe. Every choice you make helps define the kind of person you are choosing to be. Good character requires doing the right thing, even when it is costly or risky. You don’t have to take the worst behavior of others as a standard for yourself. You can choose to be better than that. What you do matters, and one person can make a big difference. The payoff for having good character is that it makes you a better person and it makes the world a better place. This is what it says about HOW TO BE A FAIR PERSON   Treat people the way you want to be treated.  Take Turns.  Tell the truth.  Play by the rules.  Think about how your actions will affect others.  Listen to people with an open mind.  Don’t blame others for your mistakes.  Don’t take advantage of other people.  Don’t play favorites.
