We’ve all felt nervous from time to time about whether people will like us or not. It could be starting a new school, going to an event, or starting a new job. We want to meet new people and make new friends, but worry that we will say the wrong thing or find it difficult to fit in.
Perhaps you weren’t so popular in school and now are heading off to college and hoping to make a fresh start. Perhaps you have moved to a different city and are feeling lonely, or perhaps you are in a job where you need people to trust and admire you so they find you more persuasive.
Knowing how to make people like you is something that comes more naturally to some people than others, but luckily, if you find it difficult to make new friends or gain people’s confidence, there are some tips and tricks that can help make life easier for you.
How to make people like you – The things that make you instantly likeable
If people like you, they are more likely to want to spend time with you, to share things with you, to believe what you say, to invite you places, to laugh at your jokes, to lend things to you, to promote you, to do you favors – and the list goes on.
So, what can you do to make people like you? Try these 35 tips.
#1 Listen. People like to know they are being listened to, so make sure you pay attention – don’t just nod your head and smile!
#2 Smile. People will like you more if you show them those pearly whites. You need to look friendly and approachable, so make sure you flash them a smile when you first meet, and try to smile lots during conversations too.
#10 Remember them. People like to feel acknowledged – so when you are introduced to people, be it at an event, in your new class, or at your new job, pay attention to their names and what they do.
#11 Ask them questions. People love to talk about themselves so make sure you ask a lot of questions to show your interest.
#12 Be interested in their interests. If you know they love to play golf on the weekend, or that they love a certain band, get interested in the same stuff as them, and then they’ll think it was a friendship that was meant to be!
#35 Take your time! Above all else be yourself, and take your time. You can’t expect to gain 100 new best friends overnight, so just be relaxed about it, don’t rush in all guns blazing and just let thing develop naturally.
Knowing how to make people like you does take a bit of time and effort, but it doesn’t have to be all hard work. Just be open to new things, friendly, and you’ll find that people easily warm up to you, and you’ll make new friends in no time!
