Making friends with other teenagers

Listen

By being a good listener, you let others know that you value what they have to say and, by extension, who they are..

Ask questions

When you ask questions, it shows that you are interested in the person or what they have to talk about. Everyone likes it when people are interested in them.

Questions are also a very important part of getting to know people. However, you need to ask the right type of questions to keep the conversation going. Using open ended questions are a great tool for finding friends. Open ended questions make people answer with more than a "yes" or "no." Use questions that begin with "who," "what," "when," "where," "why," and "how."

If the conversation goes well, ask the person for his or her phone number, myspace page, or email address, then make plans to hang out

Give a Compliment

Sincere compliments provide a good ego boost. Most people love to receive compliments. Noticing something you like about someone and sharing it with him or her is a great way to strengthen a connection and start a conversation.

Join a Club or a Sports Team

Having an interest in common with another person gives both of you something to talk about. If you have a hard time finding a club or a sports team, try Meetup.com. This website has a large selection of groups in cities throughout the United States. New groups are created everyday.

When you join a club or sports team, introduce yourself. Sitting in a corner at an event or not saying a word in a club meeting doesn't draw people to you.

We'll teach you how to #LiveTo100!
