|I used to be very shy.
|I would not go up to someone that I did not know and say hello.
|I was afraid that people would not want to talk to me.
|I have changed.
|I have become less shy.
|I have learned that making friends is easy to do.
|All you have to do is say hello.
|Most people will respond to a smile and a friendly hello.
|People will begin to talk to you about little things in their lives.
|You will soon realize that you have something in common with that person.
|Whenever I start talking to a new person I find that there is some interest that we share.
|Maybe we know some of the same people, or we went to the same school.
|Often we find that we like the same music or the same movies.
|It is easy to have a conversation with someone once you find a topic that you both can relate to.
|The most important part to making friends is to listen to what the other person says.
|If you take an interest in them, they are sure to take an interest in you.
|I have learned many things from meeting people.
|I have had many fascinating conversations, and I have made a lot of good friends.
|One day a girl came up to me and said that she was lost.
|She couldn’t find her way to her English class.
|I said that I was going to that class too.
|I told her to come with me.
|We began talking, and we became very good friends.
|That was a few years ago.
|She is still one of my best friends.
|Just think, if she hadn’t been lost we might never have become friends.
