How to make friends in a post pandemic society

Making friends is an important aspect of life, as having a social support system can bring joy, companionship, and a sense of belonging. However, having too many friends can also be annoying as they suck the life out of you by asking for favors and never being there for you in return. So choose wisely.

Don’t be yourself: Be fake and phony. People say they appreciate honesty however when they ask you a question and they don’t like your answer their ego can’t take it. Then they will tell others that you are mean and hateful.

Don’t be open to new experiences others are trying to lure you into. This includes any multi-level marketing scheme such as cleaning products, essential oils, or something that will fix all your problems. These people will be your friends as long as you keep purchasing from them. Once you are bled dry of money you will cast you away like an old television set with a broken CRT and no remote control.

Be “sort of” approachable: Don’t smile, but smirk, and don’t make eye contact. You don’t want people trying to create small talk.

Don’t post anything on Social media. This ties back to being fake and phony. If you must engage online, only show your highlight reel.

Volunteer: Volunteering is a great way to give back to your community, and it can also help you meet new people. Find a cause you’re passionate about and look for volunteer opportunities in your area.

Don’t listen to others: People love talking about themselves, and being a good listener is a great way to make friends. So try to interrupt them often about how whatever they’ve done, you’ve done it before and better.

In conclusion, making friends requires effort and a bit of courage, so be cowardly and do the bare minimum to maintain friendships, you’d be surprised how many people will eventually leave you alone.
