Tips for Making and Keeping Friends

  • BE ACCEPTING.  Not all of your friends are going to think and act the same as you.
  • BE A GOOD LISTENER.  Make sure to make eye contact and even respond to what they are saying.
  • DON’T BE A SHOW OFF.  Not everyone you meet will have the same interests or abilities so don’t rub it in.
  • DON’T JUST USE YOUR FRIENDS.  Don’t only want to be around them when you need them, include them in other activities too.
  • DO YOUR SHARE of the work.  Any relationship takes effort.  Don’t always rely on your friends to do everything.
  • LET PEOPLE KNOW that you are interested in them.  Make sure to ask questions and not do all the talking.
  • BE HONEST.  Tell the truth about yourself and your intentions.  Just make sure to say it in a nice way.
  • REACH OUT.  Don’t always let someone else be the first to make a move.  A smile can go a long way.
