Jainaba Jobarteh loves to be around people and be social. She finds it easy to talk to people but not everyone is the same. If you need to improve your social skills, there are a few easy ways you can do so.
Break The Ice
Sometimes the hardest part about socializing is knowing where to start. You should think of a few conversation starts or topics that will break the ice with anyone. It may be current news, something at work, or something as simple as the weather. Having some topics ready will make you more likely to start a conversation.
Keep A Conversation Going
You need to be able to keep a conversation going if you want to be able to socialize properly. That means using sentences to answer questions instead of just one-word answers. You can also ask questions yourself. Anything that encourages the person to continue to talk will help.
It’s hard to go up to someone and talk if you don’t have any confidence. Make sure you look your best and give yourself a little pep talk before you attempt to be social. The more confident you feel, the more social you will be.
If you are struggling to be more social and need some tips, the above can help. Jainaba Jobarteh is a very social person. She likes to meet new people in her community and often hosts fundraisers and galas that bring people together for more social opportunities.
