How and where to make new friends?

You just go out. If someone happens to speak to you and is kind, make a point to say something back. Who knows, maybe y'all will have a nice conversation and really connect on a human level. Making friends is like getting a grab bag. You never know if they're gonna stick around, if they're gonna be a good friend or a bad influence. It all starts with a simple conversation. Without that nothing can grow. 🌱
