Since 1935 National Friendship day has been celebrated on August 6th! Nothing quite beats spending time with your bestie’s, grabbing a coffee, going for food or even sipping some fresh summer cocktails.
As the years go on it seems as though making new friends can be a lot harder than when you was a carefree child with no responsibilities. So we have some helpful tips on making friends as an adult, because it’s not as easy as we all think…
Join a club or the gym
The thought of joining a book club or the gym can be slightly overwhelming, but everyone is there for the same purpose. Whether you connect over a book or have a laugh on the treadmill, doing something new that you enjoy is a great way to connect with people.
We all live busy lives, we know, but giving up one night a week to help at a local charity shop or fundraiser can be great for your social life and to meet new people.
Go to a bar
It’s a friday night alone sat watching Bridget Jones Diary… why not take yourself to a busy bar for a bite to eat, you never know who you could bump into.
Meet the girlfriends
Everyone has male friends… and it’s even better when they get a girlfriend – you get two friends for the price of one! Those shopping dates suddenly seem a lot more productive with a bit of girly advice to hand.
We are always up for learning something new, so what could be better than a night class with new people with the same interests… why haven’t we thought of this before?!
However you celebrate National Friendship day, do it in style…
