From Project BFF HQ, Terri and Manya riff about ways to make new friends.
We discuss some ideas about how to build a friendship. Find ways to let people know you want to hang out with someone such as telling them you are enjoying hanging out with them. This may feel uncomfortable as we don't usually have that kind of conversation with our friends, talking about the relationship in the way often happens in romantic relationships.
Also, a key to making new friends is to show up. Be open to friendship, and also make time to do the socializing that builds and maintains friendships.
