This was a question that was put to be the other day by a collegue.
"How do I make friends".
I just could not think of a practical answer [something not in books].
Thought I'd post this question out here.
How does one make friends & Im talking about a common guy.

Socialize, Network, and get out and do stuff with people that have the same interests as you.

Hey.. This thread could actually help me too.
I just moved from Denmark to Switzerland. And I'm also pretty lonely. I don't know other people then my colleagues. and they are all much older then me.
I'm not a shamed of saying this because it's the truth. It is actually very difficult to meet new friends unless you go too school or something.

I guess it is hard if you have no-one you know to introduce you to people. The best method would be to join a club and start from there. Once you have made one friend, you can meet new ones off of them, like a chain reaction.

Be a good listener, and don't flatter people - be sincere. People love anyone who's prepared to listen to them and compliment them in a genuine fashion.

Works beautifully with girls, too.

Billy Joel was right:
"All is takes is looks and whole lot of money".

Yeah, maybe money and looks will get you "friends". But here we are talking real friends, the ones money can't buy.

"To make a friend, be a friend." One way to be a friend is to be a good listener. Ask about the other person's interests, hobbies, family, and concerns. Use the other person's name in the conversation. Be sympathetic and try to understand the other person's problems. (But on the other hand, it's usually best not to get TOO personal in the first couple of meetings.) Learn how to make small talk about the weather, news, community happenings. And be yourself! Remember, you have a lot to offer the other person.

And, like it or not, you're going to have to go out on a limb, be outgoing, and initiate a conversation.

1. Introduce yourself to people.
2. Ask them questions about themselves, where they come from what they do for a living and whatnot.
3. Invite them to do something with you, like go have a drink, or some coffee.
4. Just be polite, courteous and be yourself. Find out what you have in common and go from there.
5. Most important thing, TALK to them, don't be shy. I am a really shy person when it comes to talking to people, I can build up the courage to initiate a conversation.

I sounds so simple, where did I go wrong. :-(
