The older we become, the more awkward it gets to make a new friend, at least for most of us. But, there are always a few ways to break this thick blanket of awkwardness.

Whether you are in a new city, or simply because you want to know more people, here’s how to make a new friend without making yourself look desperate.

Compliment them
Well, this may be old school but it’s a great way to start a conversation. And who doesn’t like being complimented? Just make sure not to overdo it; that would put the other person in an uncomfortable situation.

Reconnect with old friends
If you remember your old friends, maybe from school or your previous work place — drop a message in their inbox. That’s an easy way to connect with them and who knows, they might also introduce you to their circle.

Join a club
Registering for a book club, writer’s club or even a dance class is another easy way to meet new people and make friends. Here, the cherry on top is you get to meet like-minded people. People who share the same interest as you, and so it’s easier to bond too.

Tinder help
A lot of people are sceptical about finding a companion or a friend online but if you are careful, you can actually finds friends. Think about it and only take the step if you are okay with it.
Remember that you will never be friendless, if you are ready to move away from your comfort zone. Don’t be picky and approach with an open mind. Happy friends making!
