How to Make Friends?

Do you have hard time making friends? Errrr... I have some friends that having hard time to make new friends because they wear a mask on the face while making new friends. Just hate it, right. The key thing to making friends is being a friend yourself and being genuine.

1. Smile always. It's contagious!!
2. Address the person you'd like to make friends by his or her name. This shows that you are interested in getting to know them.
3. Be genuine. People are naturally attracted to someone who is sincere and genuinely interested in them.
4. Relax. Just be yourself.
5. Ask question that will help them start talking. Don't ask questions that are too personal in nature. Don't be busybody.
6. Be a good listener. Put the pair of ears to good use.
7. Build on common ground, such as interests and hobbies.
8. Respect differences of opinion. Gain respect by respecting other people.
9. Give compliments when called for. People always appreciate positive feedback.
10. Keep in touch by inviting them to do something fun together.
