You probably remember being a kid and going up to another person your age and saying, “Do you want to be friends?” and that was pretty much that. Friend made.

Tips to meet people at social events

You can make more friends at one party by showing interest in them than in a month by trying to meet people online. Meeting new people and making genuine connections in local events can be fun and easy if you go with the right mindset.

When it comes to meeting new people, nothing beats showing up in the real world. But none of the tips will work if you are not coming from the right place. Keep an open mind when attending social events. Reframe strangers as potential friends, it will make it much easier to approach conversations and fully engage in them.

When choosing an event, keep an eye on interesting themes, something you can relate to. Meeting new people in the context of mutual interest increases your chances of being friends.

Research events with the types of people you want to meet. They could be people in your age group, your field of work, or a specific neighborhood. Do not be too strict though, loosen up a little bit from your expectations.

Go where people are intentionally looking to make friends such as networking events where it feels normal and expected to walk up and introduce yourself.

In this digital era, apps and websites are the most convenient solutions for finding out about local events. If you are not sure where to look for events happening in Dallas, you can try out Visitdallas.com, Dallas.culturemap.com, or Dallasarboretum.org.
