February 11, 2023 All day

February 11th is National Make a Friend Day!

Making new friends as an adult can be challenging, especially if you’ve recently moved to a new area or don’t have many opportunities to meet people in your day-to-day life.

Here are some tips that may help as you try to make new friends as an adult:

  1. Join clubs or groups that interest you: Find local clubs, groups or organizations that align with your hobbies or interests. This is a great way to meet people who share your passions and to make friends who share common values and interests.
  2. Volunteer in your community: Volunteering for a cause you believe in can be a great way to meet people and make new friends while giving back to your community.
  3. Attend social events: Attend social events in your area, such as concerts, festivals, or community gatherings. This is a good way to get out and meet new people.
  4. Take a class or course: Consider taking a class or course that interests you, such as cooking, art or fitness. This can be a great way to learn new skills and meet people with similar interests.
  5. Use social media and online communities: Join social media groups, online communities or forums that are focused on your interests or hobbies. This can be a great way to connect with people who share your passions and to make new friends online.
  6. Be open and approachable: Be open and approachable when meeting new people. Smile, make eye contact, and show a genuine interest in what others have to say.
  7. Put in the effort: Making new friends takes time and effort, so don’t be afraid to put yourself out there and reach out to people. Invite people to coffee, lunch or an event that you think they would enjoy.

Remember, making new friends as an adult can take time and patience, but the effort is worth it in the end. By following these tips, you’ll be on your way to building new connections and friendships in no time.
