Reminisce, they might also be there attempting to meet fresh people and it isn’t effortless for them, either.
If you’re truly, indeed timid, do everything you can to overcome it. There are many self-help books and websites available to help you.

This is the step where you’ll find an overabundance of advice from books, websites, and friends, family, and co-workers. Everyone seems to have advice on how to meet fresh people, but what they indeed have is advice on where to meet fresh people. Just figure out what you like and what’s available in your area.

Don’t think in terms of yes or no questions. You want to consider questions that will permit the person to contribute more than a one word reaction to the conversation. That person may be timid or jumpy, too, so think in terms of what would make you feel convenient. The most evident topic is the one that brought both of you to the same location. You obviously have at least one common interest — consider questions pertaining to your common interest that would permit a person to share their opinion on the topic. Don’t make note cards and take them with you! That will just make you stand out and very likely not in a good way. Just think over the questions you have in mind until you can lightly recall them.

Good tips Christine, I personally would like the direct treatment option. Of course it is challenging but at the end you build up much confidence and can make friends lightly this way. However, I believe that many people use the indirect treatment to meet people or I would say find excuses to meet someone so that they won’t feel the rejection if the fresh person wasn’t so friendly to receive them.
