Meeting new people happily
I think the title says it all. I challenge you to not find something that suits you in the list below.
To make the most of this article, choose only five ideas that are most excited. Try them for three weeks and see what worked for most. After that, discard what does not work for you and come back for new ideas that have never tried.
Now, of course, you must know how to talk to people, have some fun, exchange contact information and go from there. But knowing where to go to meet people you can make the whole process of making it easier for you friends.
Obviously, I have not tried everything, but I tried most of it and did not understand what makes sense for a young man to go to meet friends:
Class sports: boxing, gymnastics, and aerobics, etc. You choose. It’s a good way to take care of yourself and meet then. Well, it’s always better to take a class where people are young and interesting. You can not afford to waste time in a class where you can not find friends.
Hobbie Class: Yoga, Dance Salsa, Tango dance, cooking, acting … etc. There are great ways to meet new friends. If you want to learn a new skill, then do it. If you want to do just to meet friends, then fine. Many people take new hobby just for that.
Hobbie Sports Group based /: Photography, guitar (or another instrument) enthusiasts, Fitness and running clubs, clubs Improv, Actors Studio, Philosophy Lovers Club.
Facebook: Of course, you should know how to do it properly, or you will lose a lot of time.
NonProfit: Join nonprofit or just go to their events, talk to them and to focus on the population. You can talk to people about the event, but you can talk, the more likely it will become a friend.
Social events: events expatriates, social groups, networking events, 20 something after work events. These are great, I went to hundreds of events like them. The people are open and interested in making new friends. Also, if you are a little shy, do not worry, these are the easiest to talk to people.
Meetup.com: Abundance groups and meetings … frankly, there is no reason not to. I went to a dozen meetups, and I am now part of a club house music. I love how people relax. Example (San Diego groups and hangouts) http://bit.ly/vnP7g3
Neighbors: simple sequence: go to Hi How are you? How does it work? What do to? to care for a drink?
Online forums: fitness, dating, sports … it’s amazing what you can take any topic, saying “fishing”, go to Google, type in “fishing forum San Diego” and find a whole community of people interested in it. You can go to a forum about something you love, he begins to share their views on issues and send private messages to some people who want to meet.
Bars and Pubs: Yes, they can be intimidating. But you can only start talking to someone at the bar, boy or girl. If you want to meet new people in bars, going to bars occupied where the music is not too loud. If you put yourself in a crowded area, people will be all around you. Turn your trust and talk to people.
Personally, I’m going to bars because my social life is stimulated there. I happen to come across a lot of people I know who would become friends. I find existing friends and I will meet her friends. And also, it gives me the opportunity to introduce my friends to another is very important.
Book clubs and the book had never tasted a book club, but I met some friends in bookstores. Once, I just tell a girl holding a personal finance book “Hey, this is what rich people read … need to be rich, we’re getting married or something!”. She was in self-improvement we get along fast enough.
Private games: always go to the private parts of people you know. Especially birthday parties. People can end this, but it means a lot to them if presented at his birthday party. You do go far beyond friendship. And it’s a great way to meet friends. Chances are, you will meet close friends and family. And the people are very friendly and open to birthday parties.
The dog park or any event related to animals (if you have a pet)
Cultural events: museums events, concerts, live music and local groups
Comedy Club Fans / Comedy Groups
Team Sports Fan Clubs (baseball, football, basketball, hockey) If you like a team, but not a crazy fan, do not worry, you can still hang out with the fan appointment. You can go and talk about games and equipment. You tell people who do not necessarily look at all the games, but I like the team. If you are interested in any of the participants, talk to him and move the conversation to what they do in life and what they do for fun.
Choose five ideas that have more excited. Try them for three weeks, keep what works for you. Then again inspire again.
Professional events: Fairs, groups driven functions (eg sales, marketing, development, advertising, architects, lawyers, real estate, etc …). I hope explicit? People go to these events to “professional networks”. This means they expect people to come forward. This makes it easy for you to meet new people. But do not stay too much on the professional side of the conversation. It may be a little easier and clearly show that it can be fun too.
These places are full of young people.
Seminars: explicit? If you go to a seminar on the topic of interest, how can it easier to learn and make new friends? You just know people are looking for: people with common interests.
Self-improvement clubs: Groups hypnosis, holistic healing groups, Groups PNL, psychology, meditation. These can be fun. You could meet interesting people who are aware of where they are going in life. The downside is that all people are going to be their age. But still, you can always meet at least two to five friends, simply by a group of NLP.
Public speaking clubs (like Toastmasters) Want to learn to speak in public? Otherwise, you can skip this. But if you do, then definitely go to them.
Singles clubs and Events and Speed Dating: This is fun, especially if you go with a friend or a friend. Just go there and talk to people and make them understand that not only want to meet one of the girls to date. Talk to any group of girl / boy / girl. The key is not to be taken seriously. singles clubs can be found online.
Couchsurfing.org: If you have never sailed on the sofa, you may want to try. I’ve never heard, but a great response in the way that is interesting. What I have tried is to contact local CouchSurfers and questions about the site and how they find the experience. This led to adding them on facebook and meet them in person later. On the other hand, are also CouchSurfers occasional Meetup, to go to them, even if you’re just * * interested in the concept.
Competitions and tournaments: poker, video games, shopping, dance competition …
Events and language groups-Driven: People learn new languages and know others who do too. If you speak Spanish, French or any other foreign language, find a group of people learns it.
Wine / beer Events: Casual-Buyers clubs, beer lovers, wine tasting. If you drink, go to the last. Some people are cool, some are only losers who pretend to be cool. You must make your choice.
That’s all for now! impressive list and challenge you to not find at least two ideas that are right for your situation.
Remember, people get bored and nobody hears them. They are desperate for someone like you to come and ask them questions about themselves.
