1) 3 Ways to Meet New Friends
We know we have to meet people before we can potentially become friends, but where exactly are we supposed to go to find new friends?

Let’s brainstorm the places and ways that will be most helpful to each of us specifically! At the end of this video you will have a personalized list of the best methods for YOU!
2) How Many "Potential Friends" Do I Need to Make a New BFF?

4) How Long Does It Take to Make a New Friend?
Do you find yourself wanting to feel close to people right away? Do you wonder whether you should be able to predict instantly whether the two of you will be friends? Do you want to feel close to people but then find yourself not wanting to put in the time?

Here I lead us through looking at how friendships are developed and what healthy expectations will serve us as we meet new people. At the end of this video you’ll know how much time it typically takes for you to make new friends!
