1) Be open
It is important to give a chance to everyone and not to hate them just after a few seconds. Remember that maybe she/he is also new and feels the pressure to find a new friend. Don’t feel stressed, take a few breaths and calm down.
2) Go out for a coffee or lunch
Food always helps, when you are waiting for it, you can easily start a small talk and you will forget about everything.
3) Awkward photos
I don’t know what about you, but I am not so photogenic as many people are. That why I love when my friends and I do some awkward photos because we all can laugh. Don’t be scared to do something weird, you are not alone we all are weird, but we are not showing it.
4) New activity
Sign up for some new activity don’t be scared. Some new challenges can push you to make friends. Also, same interest can help you to find some good friends.
5) Be yourself
Show them who are you I am sure that they will do the same.
