Some lasting and good friendships start after meeting a first and chance meeting. In order for this friendship to develop into a fruitful and long term endeavour, either party needs to take further initiative.
Continuing the friendship after the first initial meeting is normally done only when both parties acknowledge there is a common ground in which both can be a contributing and complimenting factor.
There are several possible ways to initiate the continuity of the new found friendship.
If the new found friendship is based on a common theme of perhaps sports, music, eating, travelling or any other possibilities then it becomes much easier to make the next step. Inviting the new found friend to any one of the above forays is the first step to ensuring the contact is continued and from there the friendship can grow and blossom.
Keeping in touch using the various media and telecommunication avenues available in present times is also another way to keep the connection between the new friends. Calling the person or texting is the most popular way to choose is the new friend is within a certain distance.
However, if distance and technology is an issue, than other alternatives can also be sought. The important thing is to ensure is that there is further ongoing contact established.
Inviting the new friend to social functions and other casual gathering is also another way to initiate further contact towards building a friendship. This is a non threatening way of trying to include the new friend into an already established group. Ensuring the new person is comfortable and happy in the new group is also very important as it shows the concern and character to the invitee.
A simple phone call to enquire about the new friend can be very heartwarming and certainly show the possibility of furthering the friendship. This act assures the new friend of the interest in forming a good and comfortable friendship based on the follow up contact initiated.
Human was not created with the intention of living life alone.
Even the creator of everything realized that humans need companionships in order to be balanced and happy. Therefore living alone or opting to lead a life with little or no contact with other is indeed sad and may even lead to mental and physical problems.
Down To It
Sometimes it requires a focus and mental effort to form relationships with other people. For some this can be a rather difficult and embarrassing experience as they are really not comfortable or not confident enough in their own selves.
Furthermore, it can be quite difficult and challenging to actually set aside time from an overwhelmingly stressful work life to then have to deal with the stress of forming new relationships. Here in lies the initial problem as most of these people often look upon the exercise of forming new relationships as stressful.
It would be wise to address this particular train of thought as it does play a very important and sometimes destructive role blocking the quest to start new friendships.
Once the confidence levels are present then the initial apprehension faced by the person will lessen to a certain degree which allows for the more adventurous mindset to prevail. The confidence gained is then apparent in the individual and this then becomes a very attractive quality which in turn attracts others to the said individual.
Making the effort to be part of something is also another way to ensure the individual does not lead a lonely and reclusive life. By being part of an organization, team, social group or even part of a games team will definitely create a circumstance where there are opportunities to socialize and make new friends often. This then can also snowball into a very active social calendar.
