HOW T O MAKE A F RI END
Find places you enjoy – the gym, a maker space, a house of worship, a house of pancakes.
Pay attention to the people you see there repeatedly.
Ask for a spot, a jigsaw, the salt. Say, ‘My name’s [your name], by the way.’
Remember their name. Use it the next time.
Repeat until you’re comfortable enough to ask if they want to grab a quick drink.
Don’t send a text the next morning.
