I moved from Kentucky to Florida when I was 24. I didn't know a single soul. Seriously, no family, no friends, no co-workers or classmates…it was just me and my dog, Bailey.
As we get older, I've found that friendships can become more difficult, especially when trying to make new friends. However, it's not impossible and it doesn't have to be difficult.
Women must tie. Women should lift each other up.Women must be connected.I absolutely value female friendships and truly believe they are necessary.
Will there be women who want to bring him down and shadow him? Of course it always gets bad
friendsFriendship experiences, but mostly female friendships are essential to my life and I have some of the best Eva women in my tribe. I don't take this lightly.
Most women will be delighted if you approach them in person. It could be something as simple as "Hey, I saw where you posted that you love bacon donuts! There's a new coffee shop near my house and I heard they have the best maple bacon topping. Would you like to check it out with me?"
Even if he doesn't succeed, he usually retaliates with another invitation.
…or maybe leaving too soon seems too much for you? Why not contact them and share something personal? My 21 year old best friend became my best friend because she called me in 6th grade to tell me I left my box of crayons in her backpack and just to talk.
We've been sister friends ever since.
Don't be afraid to expose yourself, girl.
be a girl yeah
If someone asks you to do something, say yes, even if it makes you a little nervous. When I first moved to Florida he told me that I would try something new every month.
I've done paragliding, run on racetracks, danced on club tables (I'm sorry mom!🇧🇷 I allowed myself to try new things and you know what? I met new people.
Join groups and organizations you care about
A great way to meet like-minded women is to get involved in activities and causes that interest you. This could mean joining a sports team, taking up a new hobby, volunteering with a local organization, or attending meetings or events that match your interests.
Not only will you have the opportunity to meet new friends, but you'll also be doing something you're passionate about.
Attend events in the area. Join organizations likeYoung Professionals Urban League(There are chapters in most major cities). Join local Facebook groups. Basically, put yourself in a position to meet new people with common interests.
Ask yourself what you would want in a friend and become that. Don't be judgmental. Do not get nervous. Don't get closed. Really open to meeting new people andbe good to be here(Nobody likes negative Nancy or exhibitionist Betty.)
Get in touch with the women you meet in your everyday life.
Another easy way to make new friends is to just strike up a conversation with the women you meet in your everyday life. It could be the woman sitting next to you in yoga class, the mother of your son's friend, or the co-worker you always talk to in the break room.
If you find someone you click with, don't be afraid to exchange contact information and plan to meet for coffee or lunch sometime.
Connect with women online
In today's digital age, there are many ways to connect with women online. Social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram offer great ways to reach out to potential friends, and there are a number of friend-oriented websites and forums as well.
If you feel shy or introverted, meeting people online can be a great way to make friends from the comfort of your own home.
One of the top friendship tips for women is to be yourself. When trying to make new friends, it's important to be open and honest about who you are and what you're looking for in a friendship. Don't try to be someone you're not and don't be afraid to let your true personality shine through.
Finally, it's important to remember that making new friends takes time. Don't be discouraged if you don't make friends with someone right away or it takes a while to find the friendship you're looking for. Rome wasn't built in a day, nor was friendship. Keep sitting there and eventually you'll find the women you'll befriend.
I asked the women in my girl gang for advice on how to make friends as an adult...This is what they had to say:
Eliminate the positive aspects of friendship. They come together because of common interests, but not necessarily because of each other's ability to achieve a goal. Be thorough and encouraging, but set appropriate boundaries.
-My best friend and 21 year old coon Ace Boon...Jessica Gardner.
People often look for common ground when looking for new friends. We must accept people as they are, despite differences. I value uniqueness in my friendships. None of us are the same, and that's the beauty of having you all as friends.
-My sister friend of 12 years, Trenatee Solomon
Smile... it's the best first impression and it's attractive. Also, not every meeting needs to be about spending money. Relaxing at each other's homes also means spending quality time together.See AlsoDear therapist, my boyfriend won't let me have male friends.How to deal with your girlfriend's best friendIs Your Husband Using Facebook To Cheat On You? 5 charactersRelationship Advice: Help!

Find people you really have something in common with.

Just listening helps a lot, sometimes people need your support without judgement.

Be honest and let your guard down. It's hard to make friends when you're alert and in protection mode.

Know yourself and what kind of friends you want to make. Sounds cool, but I'm a big believer in the Enneagram and personality tests because I know there are some types of people that are unhealthy for me to be in a relationship with. There are also other people for whom my personality can be toxic. Female friendships need to be intentional and purposeful to thrive. When you get to know yourself (strengths, flaws, flaws, areas of expertise), you can find friends who will praise you, challenge you, and add value to your life.

When it comes to making friends, you have to find places where like-minded women hang out, so show up, be open and approachable. So be less interesting and more interested. My point is, people often show up to impress others rather than get to know the people in the room. Start a dialogue, ask questions and listen to what is being shared, not just to respond, but to identify commonalities and common interests. People or being attracted to people like you, which encourages organic connections.

Be supportive, non-judgmental, and empower yourself to serve those you want to be. 🇧🇷 You learn to support other women and learn a lot in return!

How to maintain female friendships
Communication. Communication. Communication.
I can't say this enough. If your friend makes you angry or does something that makes you so upset that you don't want to be friends with them anymore, let them know, especially if you know they have a good heart.
We are in a society where people praise cut people and not let the other party know why. I don't believe in ghosts, especially ones you have a relationship or friendship with.
I think as adults we need to be able to communicate why we no longer want to be friends with someone or why we feel a certain way.
Reach out to your friends and give them a chance to at least address and/or correct. If your girlfriend is always 2 hours late for events, tell her.
Let her know that she pisses you off so much that you don't want to hang out with her anymore. Give him a chance to change (because believe me, people really can change).
We are always very quick to forgive our friends, husbands and significant others when they do things that upset us, but the moment our friend does something we don't like, we quickly stop. Don't be that person.
I told my friends if you are mad at me please let me know. I'm not going to get angry and all I ask is that you give me a chance to explain, change, or agree that it's time to go our separate ways.
I'm not a mind reader. No one is. Communication saves friendships. Communication feeds friendships
What are some tips for maintaining friendships with women?
1. Don't make it all about you.
Take an interest in what's going on in your friend's life and be a good listener.
2. Be supportive, not judgmental.
When your girlfriend is going through a tough time, be there for her. Offer a shoulder to cry on and words of encouragement, but avoid judging.
3. Don't gossip.
Gossiping about other people is a surefire way to ruin a friendship. If you can't avoid gossip entirely, at least don't gossip about your girlfriend behind her back.
4. Be Reliable.
If you say you're going to do something, do it. Don't keep canceling last minute plans or upsetting your friends.
If you say you're going to do something, do it. Don't make promises you can't keep.
5. Don't be jealous.
Jealousy is a destructive emotion that can ruin even the strongest of friendships. If you're jealous of your boyfriend, try to work past those feelings instead of letting them take over.
6. Accept the differences of others.
You and your friend don't have to agree on everything, but it's important to accept each other's differences.
If something is bothering you, talk about it with your friend instead of repressing them. Likewise, if your friend comes to you with a problem, listen to them and offer advice if they like it.
8. Give each other space.
Even the best of friends need a break every now and then. Respect each other's need for space, and don't take it personally if your friend wants some alone time.
9. Appreciate each other.
Make sure your girlfriend knows how much you appreciate her and why she is such a special person to you. A little appreciation goes a long way toward keeping a friendship strong.
Having friends is very important, but you know what's even better? be a friend! Giving to others benefits our emotional, physical, spiritual, and mental well-being.
And when we give our time, attention, love or affection to our friends, our energy levels increase almost instantly. We feel happier and healthier than before and this evokes a greater sense of gratitude for the people in our lives.
