Meeting People and Making Friends
With social media clouding the true meaning of friendships, it's harder and harder to form genuine, in person relationships.
You'd be surprised at how difficult it is to make friends for just about anyone. Don't let social media fool you, meeting people and making friends is an art on its own. It's hard to put yourself out there and attend camps or retreats, but I've found it to be the easiest way to form friendships with like minded people. A week at a leadership conference, church retreat, or yoga camp in your neighborhood will open many doors to potential friends. There's something about being placed in close quarters that increases your chances of getting along with someone. Add a similar topic you both enjoy and you have the perfect formula for a blossoming friendship.

Remember that a person's name is to that person the sweetest and most important sound in any language.
Be a good listener. ...
Talk in terms of the other person's interests.
Make the other person feel important – and do it sincerely.
