The Easiest Way To Meet Someone New.

I had just posted a reply before .I thought I'd post part of my reply here so others can benefit. Here's a simple formula you can learn and practice any time you want.I've made this as simple as possible.Try this:

1)When you first meet someone,start by just saying,"Hello".

2)Next.Introduce yourselves,"Hi.My name is..........".

3)The best topic to talk about: each other. You are bringing a new friend into your lives.You should get to know each other,simply by taking it in turns of asking each one question at a time to get to learn more about each other.What things do you want to know? Just ask. Do you remember when you were kids at school and you had to talk to others? Thats all it takes.Those 3 basic steps.

There you go.That's all it takes.Dream it,rehearse it and practice it.Live it.Please enjoy.
