Before you try to make new friends, you need to correct your flaws. There must be a reason behind why friends stay away from you. Perhaps you say the wrong thing or behave like a weirdo at times. Use these tips to overcome your flaws and become a better you.
#1 Why have you had a hard time meeting friends so far?
Ask yourself this question and see if you can answer yourself convincingly. And no, saying “I don’t know” is not an answer!
#2 How do people respond to you when you make a conversation?
Try to recollect their behavior. When you talk to someone, do they appear uneasy or awkward, or do they end up looking around the room when you speak? You’re coming across as a bore!
#3 Do your friends drift away from you over time?
If this is the case, you may come off as a great person to begin with, but the things you do once the friendship is forged may make your friends want to stay away from you.
#4 Do you feel awkward when you spend time with your friends?
If you do, big chances are, they’re feeling really awkward to be around you too!
#5 Get yourself a role model. It’s time to fix yourself up.
Don’t change who you are, but try to find small ways to become a better you with the help of a role model.
#6 Speak to your family or close friends, and ask them for a frank opinion about your behavior.
Don’t stop them midway or argue with them when they criticize you. Hear them out completely. You may not realize it, but you may have a lot of flaws that you didn’t know of.
#7 Don’t be disheartened. You can’t get along with everyone.
Some people may like loudmouths while others prefer people who are stuck up and snotty. If you’ve genuinely understood and corrected your flaws and are still unable to meet the right friends, perhaps, you’re looking in the wrong places.
