Hello friends! In honor of the Back-To-School themed takeover week, we’re doing a post on how to be friendly to everyone. Dreamy and I have compiled tips on how we feel you can best do this. I hope you learn something!
This can be huge, and it’s really, really simple. It literally does not inconvenience you at all to smile at someone. Just smile whenever you see people. It can make you into a very friendly person. It also makes you seem more approachable.
Don’t ignore anyone
Okay, so when people are talking, don’t ignore them! I’m not saying that if someone interrupts your conversastion you should devote your full attention to them or anything, but just try to pay attention when others are talking to you.
This is very important if you want to have friends! You can’t be friends with someone if you don’t know who you are. Say hi and tell others your name and maybe a little about you. Any place is good to start!
Sit with someone who looks lonely
This can help out a lot. If you see someone sitting alone, maybe sit with them? It doesn’t have to be hard, but it lets the person know that they aren’t alone in the world.
Try to include others
This kind of goes along with some of our other tips, but try to make sure others feel included! I would hate it if Teacup and Pumpkin were talking and laughing, and I was just by myself. So, when you see someone who’s being left out, try to talk to them and see if they want to join in your group of friends!
Talk to others & ask them questions
Along with that last one, you need to talk to people! Ask them questions about themselves and learn about them. They’ll probably ask you questions and all too, and then you’ll both get to know each other. Plus, questions can keep people engaged, that way you aren’t talking about yourself the whole time.
Finally, simply be kind. Kind is synonomus with friendly for a reason!
I hope you enjoyed these friendship tips! Let me know your best tip on how to be friendly in the comments!
