We all could use a new friend, partner, lover or customer in today’s workaholic society. Here are the 10 best methods that you can use to attract new people into your life. These tips are universal to all aspects of social interaction. You can use these ways to attract new clients for your business or new friends if you have moved to a new city, started a new job, or just looking for a romantic partner.
Number 1: Make sure you smile at the new person. It is often the first type of contact you have with a person. It is a very powerful form of non-verbal communication. Smiles are free, easy to do and can lead you naturally to a conversation.
Number 2: Make good eye contact. This is another powerful form of non-verbal communication. There is a saying that “The eyes are the windows to a person’s soul.” Holding eye contact is a sign of confidence so don’t look at the floor right after looking into her eyes. Doing so will make you look shy or disinterested.
Number 3: Speak up and say “hello.” Do you remember when you were a child and your parents told you not to speak until you are spoken to? Hopefully everyone doesn’t follow that rule. If they did, then we would live in a really silent world. Go ahead, break that rule when it comes to meeting a new person.
Number 4: Use a firm handshake when meeting someone new. Just be sure not to squeeze their hand so tight that he or she will end up with broken bones. If so, then watch out because you’ll never get another chance to make a good first impression
Number 5: Go to places that have the kinds of people you want to attract. If you want to meet other professionals, then join a professional organization. If you love hiking, then join a local hiking club. If you want to meet people with similar morals, beliefs, and values, try a church, synagogue or temple. The key is to put yourself out there in places have the same people that you are interested in. Remember, it is hard to attract new people when you are lounging around all alone at home watching reruns of American Idol.
Number 6: Dress the same as the people you want to attract. If you want to attract new customers, then you will need to dress like a businessman. Completely outfit yourself with a suit and tie. If you want to meet someone that is conservative, then do not wear something that is flashy or revealing. If you want to attract the 1960’s hippie crowd, then by all means, dress like one! The goal is to dress similar to the people that you want to meet
Number 7: Be honest, be positive and be brief. There is nothing that builds trust faster than being honest with the person that you have met for the first time. Don’t lie and tell them that you drive a Ferrari 450 when you really drive a 10 year old beat up car. Be positive because others like to spend time with these types of people as opposed to the negative thinking types. It’s all in the attitude! So don’t start off and tell them how much you hate your ex-girlfriend. Be brief, that way you have plenty of time for number 8
Number 8: Listen up to your new acquaintance! Everyone in society has this desire to feel significant. The easiest way to show someone that you are interested in them is to listen to what they have to say
Number 9: Be happy and content with everything that is going on in your life. When you are cheerful, it will show in your interactions with others. This will communicate an attractive positive attitude to others
Number 10: Be the type of person that you want to attract. There is a saying that “like attracts like.” If you are looking for open and honest people, then be open and honest yourself. If you want to attract someone who is athletic and has a fit lifestyle, be in shape and have a fit lifestyle yourself
By following these 10 tips, you will be well on your way to attracting new people into your life.
