When i was younger it was easier to make friends, mainly as everyone is open and wants to be your friend the minute they see you, but also i think you spend alot of time when your younger in situations where you can make new friends, at the park, school, nursery
I’m always open to making new friends and i can make them quite easily, it’s just been in the situation to make them that you don’t come across as much when your older.
However when i do make new friends, i think the most important thing to do is listen to them and really take the time to get to know them.
Always be honest and share your interests with them, remember to be open about what they are into, it’s so easy to judge people on how they look, what they do, like and dislike.
Express your opinions but don’t become over bearing or make them feel bad about theirs.
Generally just being you and nice is the way to make new friends 🙂
