If you take a look at the people out there who seem to make friends easily, they were probably seclusive themselves at some point. Their social skills were likely all picked up over time. For this same reason, you can learn to become more sociable through time and practice.
The first step is to develop a healthy mental image of meeting new people. Some of us see meeting new people as a scary event. We are concerned about making a good impression, whether the other person will like us, how to keep the conversation going, and so on. The more we think about it, the scarier it seems. This initial apprehension develops into a mental fear, which takes a life of its own and unknowingly blocks us from making new friends. Shyness towards others is actually a result of fear.
Sometimes you may have a preset notion of the kind of friend you want. Maybe someone who is understanding, listens, has the same hobbies, watches the same movies, has similar educational background, etc. And then when you meet the person and realize that he/she differs from your expectations, you then close yourself off.
Show warmth, love, and respect towards everyone you meet. Do things because you want to, and not because you have to. Care for them like you would yourself. If you approach others with genuinity, you will attract people who want to connect genuinely. Among them will be your future true friends.
Say you make many new friends by being vocal and brassy. However, your normal self is quiet and introverted. What happens then It may be great initially to get those new friends, but the friendship was established with you being an extrovert. That means either:
A friendship is a supportive union between two people. Be there for your friends where you can. Does any of your friends need help currently Is there anything you can help them with How can you better support them
"Bart's New Friend" is the eleventh episode of the twenty-sixth season of the American animated television series The Simpsons, and the 563rd episode of the series. It originally aired on the Fox network in the United States on January 11, 2015. The episode focuses on Bart's new friendship with his father Homer, who has been hypnotized in order to think he is a young boy.
This forces Bart to share his room with Homer, and he is surprised when the new Homer says that when he will grow up, he will not have a job or a family. Bart makes Homer his new best friend and accomplice, to Milhouse's dismay. On the other side, Marge takes up knitting as she begins to miss her husband, despite their children having fun with him: Lisa holds a concert with him and Bart evades bullies due to Homer's protection. Wiggum finally manages to capture Golly and plans to bring him back, but he and Marge discover that Homer and Bart have left the house and run off to Itchy & Scratchy Land for one more day together.
Homer is finally caught and torn between his love for Marge and his new bond with Bart. He chooses the former and says goodbye to his best friend, advising him to be 10 years old forever. Before reversing the hypnotism, Marge asks Golly to make Homer more affectionate; as he refuses to cuddle after sex. Golly then brings Homer back to his old self, but before Marge can explain what happened, Homer assumes that the reason of his presence at Itchy & Scratchy Land was because he was drunk and asks for forgiveness, which Marge gives. Later that night, Homer visits Bart in his room and confides to Bart that he had a special friend as a kid but cannot remember who it is. He also decides not to strangle him again and rather wants to begin a new step with him. Later, after having sex, Homer impulsively offers to cuddle Marge, who then becomes thankful for Golly's help.
