Charities Are One Way To Meet And Make New Friends

Jan 1, 2008
When you are looking for a way to meet new friends, you might consider working at a few charities. You not only meet and make friends with the people you are working with, but with the people that come to the charity events. This is an easy way to avoid going to taverns or area coffee shops and spending your money. You can meet some very nice and interesting people while working for charities. If you are new to the town or city, this is one way to keep yourself busy while you enjoy doing something for others.

There is always some charity or organization that is looking for volunteers. You could check with area markets, visitor's center or even city hall to find out if they have any charities you could help with. Once you find a few that interest you, take the time to learn about the organization or charity and then introduce yourself to the chairperson.

Charities are always a great way to meet people. They never turn away people because they are overcrowded. You can join a few different charities that may have you meeting different people as well. As long as you are open and honest, you will make new friends that may lead to friendships outside of the charity event.

Once you establish yourself with the charity, you might even find that they want your input into different areas that need help. Making friends who ask for your input is healthy and makes you feel good. If you have an idea about something when you first join, it might be a good idea to take it slow, you want to make friends before taking on the entire charity board.

Never be alarmed if you do not make friends quickly. Some people need time to get to know someone before they accept them as a friend. This should also be a good practice for someone looking for a new friend as well. After about a week or so, you should be able to tell who does what and who would make a great friend. You may of course, meet someone the first day.

How long it takes to make new friends depends on your personality. If you are very outgoing, you may make friends rather quickly, but if you are shy, it might take a while for people to warm up to you. You might even meet someone who is outgoing who will take to you right away. Making friends and keeping friends is what you need, therefore, taking your time is wise.

When the charity event goes live, you may find yourself meeting more people who will become your friend as well. This would be the reason for why charities are great ways to meet and make new friends. You never have to stop there, you can go on to meet new friends through the friends you have already made. Friendship is a never ending circle. It never has to stop with just a few friends, you can have as many as you want.
