7 Tips for Meeting New People That Anyone Can Use in Life ...


Some of the most valuable lessons I’ve learned so far are various tips for meeting new people which have helped me in numerous ways during various jobs I’ve had thus far. Being a shy child, it was terribly difficult for me to meet new people, let alone interact with strangers I would have to meet during future jobs. Yet, once I started working at 15, I quickly learned how to meet new people and also maintain relationships over time. Since starting my first job at 15, I’ve held jobs as a public speaker, newspaper reporter, a model and a representative for a nonprofit agency. Each of these jobs required me to meet new people on a daily basis, and during the process, I learned some pretty great tips for meeting new people that made things much easier and less awkward. Next time you’re having a hard time on the job or in your social life meeting others, try to remember a few of these tips and you'll be a pro at meeting others in no time!

1. Get out

One of the best tips for meeting new people is also one of the simplest. You have to get out if you want to meet new people and develop common interests. You’re not going to meet anyone sitting at home on your couch watching sitcom reruns or indulging in Pinterest every single night. Sure, that’s fine on occasion, but you’ve got to get out routinely to meet others. It is the only way you’ll overcome your fear of meeting new people and interact with them. Go to the store, spark up a conversation or visit a bookstore and join a book club. Just do anything you can to get out and try to meet others.
