Even if you are naturally shy, these three tricks will help you to quickly build a new social circle in any new city.
One of the great things about taking pictures at an event or party is that it gives you an excuse to get in touch with the person later. Everybody loves seeing pictures of themselves, and it's very easy after taking a picture to say "Are you on Facebook?" or "If you'd like I can email it to you."
This can be the seed that leads to new connections. The next time you hear about a fun event email your new contacts to let them know about it.
Eat Alone In Public
If you don't know anyone in a new city, it can be tempting to order take-out and retreat back to your lonely apartment or hotel room. Instead, try eating by yourself in public as often as possible.
You might feel self-conscious eating by yourself but it has an important benefit: you are much easier to approach when you are alone. People may be afraid of interrupting you or being rude if you are in a conversation with someone else.
Bring a book or newspaper to read (this will make you feel less self conscious). Plus, having an interesting book with you will give others an excuse to start a conversation if they've read it.
Join A Class, sports Team, Or Club
yoga, salsa dancing, volleyball, jogging, Toastmasters (a Public Speaking club), a class for work, martial arts, etc. Take up a new hobby or continue an old one!
These are all great places to meet new people, primarily because you will be forced to see the same people over and over again in the class. You will automatically make friends with them if you have a common interest and are forced to see each other again.
If you're having troubling thinking of a good one to join, try browsing the many clubs on MeetUp.com or the events on CraigsList.com
* In the beginning, never turn down an invitation from someone, even if it's something you wouldn't normally do.
* Email your new friends with fun things to do instead of always asking what their plans are. If they have a better plan you can always still drop yours and join them. This will help establish you as someone who is contributing value instead of just taking it (people want this in a friend).
* Don't let little things in life piss you off or be a negative person. Others won't want to be around you!
I'm not sure when I first fell in love with you... I guess it could have been as early as that first time we held each other, or the first time I realized that you kind of liked me, too.
I'm not sure; I just remember thinking of you more and more and getting less and less done in the process!
I remember wanting you to stay so badly - and being so thrilled at the thought.
I remember praying that it was you whenever the phone would ring, but at the same time hoping it wasn't; because I didn't know how in the world I was going to sound romantic and impressive when what I felt was anxious and tongue-tied.
Sometimes it still amazes me - how I get so anxious and thrilled and thoughtful about you; I guess maybe it's because I just keep falling wonderfully in love with you... over and over again.
I think that we should all have two lives. One to live to make mistakes and then one to come back and do it again. You know so you don't make mistakes. I mean because parents will not tell you things - nobody ever tells you. Parents don't want to sit down and really garb(服装，装束) and say: well now this is what this is about and this is why we are doing this and this - No it's a big secret!
When I got married I said to my father, "I'm going to get married, can you help me?" He said no. I went to my mother, I said "I'm going to get married, Ma, tell me something about it." She said, "Oh, that's wonderful. Your father and I have never argued, and he's just been wonderful all through life. "Which is a lie! Lie! I heard him in there, and, "I'll now tell you another thing I'll take your arm and rip it off and rararara..."
And now in my marriage, my wife and I love each other but I will tell you in a minute we've had some arguments! I mean I've never punched her and she's never punched me but we've had some arguments, I've called her some names that I was proud I even thought of. And my wife has run some of on me that I've written down, yeah, but nobody will tell you that. The only person who ever made an attempt was a priest. Think about that. A priest! Said, "I'll tell you about it," I beg your pardon.
Marriage, you can't beat it. The first day we got married, both of us scared and everything, there we got married and we went to our hotel room for our honeymoon and just stared at each other - just sat there on the edge of the bed with our clothes on looking at each other. Then finally we got in the car and went to the drive-in and then we knew what to do.
