Making new friends can seem really daunting. Whether you’ve moved to a new area, started a new job or simply want to expand your social circle, it’s essential to create and nurture those connections. After all, a quality of a high-value woman is having a support network of like-minded elegant friends. That support network is essential for bettering your life and opening doors to new opportunities, memories and experiences.
But where do you start and how do you even initiate a new friendship? Well, here are a few tips to help you make new, elegant friends…
Identify who you want to attract
What kind of new friends do you want to attract? Are you looking to find elegant ladies who share the same interests, or someone who could also be a mentor? There are definitely many types of female friends every elegant lady should have, so identifying which one you want to attract is key. It will also help you find out how to best make those connections.
1. Go to the right places
Being a hermit isn’t going to help you. You’ll need to put yourself out there as much as possible. However, it is important to go to the right venues. If you want to make elegant, classy and sophisticated friends, you’ll have to go to elegant and refined venues. So, once you’ve identified what kind of connections you want to make you’ll have to work out where they hang out. Positioning yourself strategically is key!
Remember to join in as many activities as possible, even ones you wouldn’t naturally be inclined to join. Try a pottery class or going to pilates once or twice a week. You could even join a running team or a society local to your community. Participate in work events and seize every opportunity to network and meet new people. The butterfly effect will surprise you!
2. Find online spaces
Making connections online is a great place to start. Depending on the platform you choose, you can really refine your search and find likeminded people very easily. For example, Anna’s new platform, The A-List, is an online private members’ club for elegant ladies who enjoy the finer things in life. By joining the club, you can make instant connections with ladies who enjoy everything fine-living and elegance. Currently we’re not accepting new members, but you can join the waitlist and be one of the first to know when we’ll be accepting new members.
3. Be yourself
As cliche as it might sound, being yourself is so important. It’s the only way you’ll truly bond and connect with people like you. To attract likeminded people into your life, you’ll have to be yourself. Make sure to share your interests, passions and values to those around you. It will help you filter out the bad apples, too!
Make sure you give as much as you receive in friendships, especially new ones. Elegant ladies always share recommendations, contacts and favours. This helps build trust and connection. It’s also essential to make sure you never come off as opportunistic. For that reason, reciprocating with your new friends is key to building a sustainable relationship.
Happy socialising, ladies!
