Social Events in Glendale, Arizona This Week

Let’s explore social events in Glendale, AZ happening this week. Local events are a great way to meet new people and make new friends. Look through this page and consider going out and socializing during one of these social events.

Social events are great and offer a world of possibilities. You can make new friends, learn new skills, see things from different perspectives and it’s fantastic for your mental health. And never before has companionship and being able to spend time with others been as important as it is today.

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. Alas, it’s not quite as simple now that we’re grown up, but it doesn’t have to be as difficult or as awkward as we think. There are thousands of people out there who would love to meet up with others, finding them just takes a bit of help and that’s what we’re here for.

On this page, we hope you’ll find some interesting events in Glendale where you can make some new friends.

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 Glendale, you can try out Glendaleaz.com, Visitglendale.com, or Visitdowntownglendale.com.
