So where exactly are আপনি supposed to meet these great new pals? Sitting in your room isn't going to make it happen! Start দ্বারা getting involved in the activities and interest আপনি already প্রণয় whether it's an online Winx অনুরাগী club অথবা a local ভলিবলখেলা league. Being the new kid in the group will feel weird at first, but remember, you're all there because আপনি share the same interests. What could be a better ice breaker? If আপনি think you're already way involved and still aren't connecting with people, it might be time to step back and re-evaluate how আপনি act around others. Don't be too haughty অথবা condescending. It is far আরো important to be nice than be interesting. Instead of heading straight প্রথমপাতা after a game, grab a পিজা with the team. The আরো time আপনি invest in getting to know others, the easier it is for them to see আপনি as an A-list friend.
PS: আপনি need not dress up in dandy clothes অথবা wear loud make up to attract people. আরো than artificial make up, simplicity attracts people. Smile often, make eye contact, don't look too tensed and listen to what others have to say!
Form a Study Group
Does your math teacher give super-hard exams? Is your history teacher always giving pop quizzes? Round up a few others from your class to study together each week. Ask your teacher if আপনি could pass around a sign-up sheet অথবা make an announcement about the group after class.
Detach Yourself From Technology. Temporarily!
Put away your cell phone from time to time and take a look around. Who seems funny অথবা interesting? Which people in the room have আপনি never talked to? Who pays attention to your ideas? Make a mental note and spend a little time getting to know these people face-to-face. When your group gets together, share notes and chat about class. Find out what your classmates like about the teacher and what they can't stand. Make flash cards together অথবা ক্যুইজ one another. Bring snacks and share what's going on in your life. You'll have new বন্ধু before আপনি know it.
Say you're seriously crushing on a guy, would আপনি run up to him and announce আপনি two are now a couple and you're now going to spend every single দিন together? Um, not unless আপনি want him to run in the other direction. The same goes for making friends: আপনি want to take things slowly at first. Wait until আপনি feel comfortable talking to each other during band practice অথবা on the walk প্রথমপাতা from the লাইব্রেরি before আপনি suggest getting together. Skip high-pressure অথবা potentially awkward situations, like your grandpa's 85th birthday bash.
Opt for something casual: "So, have আপনি seen that new movie? I thought it'd be fun to get a bunch of people together to go." Will it be totally nerve-wracking to make the first move? Probably but it'll have been আরো than worth it once the ice is broken and you're out having fun with your new friends.
And then? Don't sit back, relax and expect lasting friendships to occur. It requires communication from both sides. Therefore, call up people আপনি have just met, যন্ত্রপত্র old বন্ধু who have moved away, drop in occasional sms just to say 'hi'.
Old অথবা new... Last but not the least - don't forget old friends. If they have moved away অথবা if আপনি have moved away, be in touch with occasional phone calls and emails. Don't leave old বন্ধু for the sake of new ones.
