1 Observe Your Surroundings
This technique is one of the best ice breakers out there. Pay attention to what’s going on around you and make comments concern it. If you are on online talking websites, take a look at the person’s profile and use the information in it to break the ice between the two of you.
Maybe there is a movie they watched that you are a fan of, or a singer that you both enjoy listening to. On the other hand, if you are trying to approach someone in real life, pay attention also to visual clues in your surroundings:
maybe they read the same book that you read or planning to read. So break the ice with conversation starters such as, oh! I love this writer; have you read his or her story “name of the story?” This way, you’ll be triggering the conversation with something of their interest.
2 Make People Comfortable
Relationships’ books invariably emphasize that people should feel comfortable around you. Always show interest in who they are, where they are from and what their interests are. Very often, when you make the conversation about other people and let them speak about themselves, you are giving them the chance to feel more comfortable about you.
Also, people will feel more comfortable sharing with you intimate details about their lives, which will make them like you more. So, if you are asking yourself how to be friends with people the answers are simple: be friendly and be a good listener.
