Introduction: How to Make Friends

This is an instructable on how to make friends in awkard social settings if you don't really know anyone. (It might be slightly over exagerated...) enjoy.

Step 1: Find a Social Gathering.

These guys are super shy and don't know anyone.

Step 2: Complement Anything.

Here, the little French man sees the Mexican girl and is intrigued by her outfit. So he compliments it, and they find out they have lots in common culturally. This sparks a great conversation and the two become friends for the evening.

Step 3: Talk Politics.

Here, the Communist man sees the Tree Hugger and they spark up a conversation based on politics. They find out they have a lot in common.

Step 4: Exchange Contact Information

They quickly become friends and exchange contact information so they don't lose contact.

Step 5: Don't Feel Left Out

The other half of the group sees how easy it is to make friends...and are intrigued. They want to make friends too....

Step 6: Take Initiative

Blue guy sees the graffiti artist and remebering how French Man met Mexican Gal, he compliments the artist's outfit and they quickly become friends....Grafiti artist loves Blue's choice of attire for the evening. They also find out they have lots in common.

Step 7: Again, Exchange Contact Information

They also exchange contact information, knowing that they'll be best friends for life.

Step 8: Don't Leave Anyone Left Out!

Being lonely is a horrible feeling. Blue and Grafiti artist see lonely creepster in the corner and don't want him to feel left out, so they begin conversation and find out they all love the same things :) His confidence is quickly boosted and doesn't feel left out anymore.

Step 9: Group Hug

Soon, this gathering turns into a bumping party and everyone is meeting new people and their sense of insecurity is gone. At the end everyone exchanges contact information and quickly becomes friends. :)

Based on how well I usually do in awkward social awkward settings where I don't know really anyone, I'm thinking maybe I should change my screenname to Creepster-In-The-Corner... :) Nice 'Ible; cute, cute pics. (I'm off to put together a cute little Mexican girl outfit so I can start attracting culturally-compatible Frenchmen for the night . ;)

One tip. When meeting new friends, try not to mention that you spend your time re-creating social scenarios for small painted figurines and posting photos of their encounters on the internet. Doesn't go over well. ;) Anyway, that was AWESOME! You totally have my vote for best Burning Q!!!

I actually think its cool when someone does an activity that most people have never heard of. I collect monkey wrenches, and carve goofy faces on dried avocado pits.

Of course this all happens in a perfect world, and nothing less right? I'm not trying to criticize, just to be real. I would love it if everybody was as psyched about meeting new people as I am but the world just isn't that way. Kind of sad if you think about it. But I love the cute little rabbit-freak-things.

author

... and you know what, I couldn't care less about those "don't-want-to-meet-new-people" kind of folks. Other people are the very most interesting things in the world, to me, I've always been a talk-to-strangers person.
