I know this is a classic tip but its true. Try and smile at people. It will make you look friendly and approachable. You don’t want to look moody!

2.Don’t try to hard.

No, I am not saying don’t make an effort. I am saying don’t within a day of meeting them act like you have known them forever. It will make you look weird. Friendships take time. You can’t force them.

3. Find common interests!

Lets prove my point. Ok, you love creative writing and theatre. Who are you more likely to be friends with someone who loves creative writing or someone who loves chemistry?

4.Create inside jokes.

So I personally think it really helps friendships to have inside jokes. For example with one of my good friends, we will call her Zebra 🦓 for privacy reasons. One of us just has to saying sharpening pencils to each other and we will both start laughing. Its also great for sending your first text to them. Nothing is more awkward than sending them hi, and then they reply hi and you have got no idea what to say next.
