Get Known … The Easy Tips for Meeting People

There’s always exceptions to the rule but in general, the people who complain about not being able to meet people aren’t doing enough to try.

Although they understand that doing the same thing day in and day out will net the same results, they are too lazy or comfortable to change their behavior.

This is fine if they accept it and don’t complain. But they won’t and they do.

Once you take the first brave steps, the rest is easy. Can you do it?

Even after you break down the logic of them not “trying” hard enough and them buying into this logic, the next time you meet them up they go off on the same rant about not being able to meet people or how there is nobody out there for them to meet who’s worth their effort.

Well I’m telling you now that you might be one of those people.

And you don’t have to be if you allocate some time to work on this.

Once you know what to do you have to execute it and this can often be difficult as it may not be something you are used to.

People tend to not be comfortable with anything that deviates from their normal schedule.

If meeting somebody is really what you want then here are some tips and ideas that you might find fun and motivating to get yourself started.

If meeting someone “would be nice” but you are generally very comfortable and happy with your life and schedule right now, then good for you, you’re happy already, enjoy it!

Some of these ideas itself could be it’s own post, so they are very general.

 

I hope these point you in the right direction:

  • Attend happy hours at your work or your friend’s work. Many times friend’s invite other friends to the more casual work events like happy hours.
  • Organize events (happy hours, networking dinners, social outings) and do not be afraid to mix groups (college friends + co workers etc..)
  • Utilize websites for locating events near by that may interest you. (Meetup, Eventbrite to name a few). This is becoming very popular and almost every major city you’ll find groups or events where you’ll meet people of similar interest.
  • Take classes you’re interested in. This gives you the opportunity to meet people of the same interest and if you don’t you still learned something you were interested in anyway.
  • Be active on social networks. Many times being active on publicly visible platforms such as Twitter and LinkedIn allows for serendipity to take place where you can meet people you otherwise wouldn’t have, either within your professional and social network or outside of it
  • Ask your friend specifically if they know somebody that may be they think you’d like to meet. You’d be surprise. Sometimes all you have to do is ask.
  • Volunteer for events. You will definitely meet people and at the same time help contribute to something worthwhile.
  • Try online dating websites. If you haven’t given it a real effort yet. Do it now!

If you what you see above is not part of your weekly or monthly activities in one way or another, you may be the one responsible for you not having to have met some cool people to date or socialize with. If it is, you can always try harder.
