7 Extremely Helpful Tips on How to Be Approachable ...


I believe it can be very useful to know how to be approachable, especially when you are trying to make new friends or to mingle at some party you are invited to. Sometimes, if you send the wrong signals, you might think that people are avoiding you and that nobody wants to be your friend. This might even affect your self-esteem and your self-confidence and in the long term, your happiness. Just like Dale Carnegie (the famous author of How to Win Friends and Influence People) said, “You can make more friends in two months by becoming interested in other people than you can in two years by trying to get other people interested in you.” Sometimes, no matter how intelligent, good-looking or interesting you might be, if you look scared, preoccupied or intimidating, people might avoid you and they might not be so inclined to talk to you. So, here are a few extremely helpful tips on how to be approachable that will help you make more friends and be friendlier:

1. Smile

One of the best things you can do if you want to learn how to be approachable is to smile. Even if sometimes you don’t feel like it, just do it and I’m sure your entire mood will change as well. You will seem friendlier and more open, people will want to be around you and get in on the fun. Also, don’t forget to smile with your eyes; don’t stare, just soften your eyes’ expression and enjoy yourself. You can practice this in front of a mirror and I’m sure you will master this skill in no time.
