Alice’s monthly mission: May

I’ve decided to start something new on the blog- a monthly mission to inspire me to be a more confident, happy, and healthy young adult.

Join me for May, as I focus on finding more friends.

The thing is, I’ve never been one for having many friends. You don’t need to feel sorry for me; I’m just one of those people who likes to spend a lot of time on their own.

But since moving to London and being a grown-up for the first time, I’ve not had school or my Uni halls to help me meet new people, so I’m on a mission to go out and do it myself.

Making friends in a new place is always tricky. Here’s the things I’m planning on doing this month to put myself out there-

Attend events from meetup.com
If you’ve never heard of this website then I totally recommend it! It’s a great way to find other people who share your interests, with everything from dog walking to fashion meet ups.

Join a book club
An oldie but a goodie. If you can feel a bit awkward making small talk (like me!) then  book clubs are a great option, as you’ll go in already armed with things to talk about. Of course, the best book clubs are combined with booze so check to see if any local pubs near you host one.

Make the first step
It can be hard putting yourself out there, but I’ve decided I am going to make the effort to pencil in plans with people. Even if you don’t know someone very well, who knows where a casual coffee will take you?

I’d love to hear about the best ways you’ve made friends over the years,

    I’m not good at making friends. But working as a photographer made me to talk to people I don’t know, as I have to create friendly atmosphere. I found couple of ways how to find the right topic (it wasn’t easy and the ways don’t work with everyone). The most important is to share some of my experiences so that they open up. Thanks to this I found nice people and am able to become friends with almost anybody. And yes, the rule is to be nice and sweet most of the time. Which can be exhausting sometimes 🙂
    Good luck with making new friends! Just be patient.

    1. Thanks Michaela! This is useful advice. I’m sure I’ll get there eventually 🙂

  2. So glad to have stumbled across your blog! Good luck with your goal, it is something I really need to get my head around and do! xx

    1. Thanks Ella! Hopefully I’ll get on well with it this month 🙂
