How To Make New Friends In A New City

Posted 6/27/2008 by smartblackboy in Labels: , , ,

Alright Art Star pham this is a special column dedicated to all of my friends moving to new cities.

I would like to present to you: The Spontaneous Combustion Theory

When we go to a new place one of our first worries is how will we replace our social network?

The answer is simple.

You don't need to go out and make a bunch of friends.

All you need is to be able to make one friend.

Even the most socially awkward of us should be able to strike up one friend.

Now once you have found your one friend (and pick them carefully) the rest is easy.

You meet their friends and you are outgoing and nice, and some of their friends become your friends now too.

Then you meet their friends' friends. Etc. Etc. Etc.

All of a sudden you have a much larger social network than you started with all because of one person.

It is really that simple.

You meet just one person. Then you go out to a bar with some of their friends. Meet and befriend their friends. Get their numbers. Go out again and meet more people. Make more friends. And just keep repeating it until you have your desired number of friends.

The reason this is called the Spontaneous Combustion Theory is because all it takes is the ability to meet one person, and make one friend.

Then the rest just takes care of itself.

So, don't stress out about making lots of new friends in a strange city - focus on making just one friend, put the Spontaneous Combustion Theory to work, and before you know it your only worry will be deciding which weekend invitation to accept!
