How to Meet People

Want to improve your social life? Here are some great ways for
you to meet more people:

1) Go out when people invite you

The first thing I would say is that you should make sure to
always try saying “yes” whenever you are invited out. Meeting
new friends through friends is one of the best ways to
expand your social circle. Since it’s by invitation only,
you can be sure that you will have at least a TINY bit of
social proof instead of being just another complete stranger
at a pub or nightclub.

Furthermore, if you want more of a social life, then you
should NOT be turning away invitations anyway. So get off
your high horse, forget your excuses, and just go out and
have a !

2) Take classes

Taking classes is a GREAT way to meet people. Not only will
you meet people with similar interests, you will also pick
up new skills and knowledge that could potentially become
conversation topics with other people in the future.

Be sociable and strike up conversations before and after
classes. Ask questions and volunteer during class so
everyone remembers your face. Organize study sessions
and invite everyone. Just put yourself out there, and
you’ll make friends in no time.

3) Join a sports team or league

Join a community or recreational sports team. You’ll meet
tons of people!

4) Join a club or organization

Find a hobby that you like and join a club or organization
for that hobby. Enjoy sailing? Join a sailing club and you’ll
be sailing with your new friends every weekend.

5) Join a community theatre group

Community theatre groups often put on shows with 20 or 30
cast members who will work closely together for a few months.
You’ll literally get to laugh and cry together. Just remember
to go to all the cast parties!

6) Volunteer

As I always say, volunteering is one of the safest ways to
meet people because most people who take the time to volunteer
can’t be too bad. You’ll probably get along because you have
a common cause, and it may also feel less intimidating because
you’ll be distracted by the work you’re doing.

7) Join a Meetup group

There are Meetup groups in every city. Just go to meetup.com
and search for specific interest groups in your city. You
can probably have a few meetings a month if you want!

8) Join a business association

If you’re a professional or business owner, you should join some
business networking associations. You’ll meet tons of great
people who are as eager and ambitious as you are.

9) Walk your dog

Dog owners are a close bunch. They often chat while their dogs sniff
each other and play. So walk your dog often and let it introduce
you to other animal lovers. If your dog is especially beautiful or
cute, you may even see other strangers approaching you just to pet
your dog.

Potential downside: Your dog may attract more attention than yourself.
So make sure you take the initiative to start conversations!

10) Travel

People often lower the inhibitions when they are in a foreign
country, so traveling is a great way to meet new people. If you’re
young, stay at a hostel and meet other backpackers. If you’re older,
go on a cruise or guided trip and talk to other people on the ship
or in the tour group. Make sure to stay in touch after the trip.
