    What I’ve noticed over the years is that virtually everyone wants to be opened, even those whom are introverts. I can even argue that I am introverted although most would assume I am extraverted. Usually what the problem is that everyone is afraid to be the initiator because they all fear judgment.

    This sort of inner conflict occurs even in existing friendships. How many people do you know that doesn’t make plans with their friends? Without a doubt, it is not because they do not want to socialize or get together. The problem is that since the other person isn’t being the first to contact, the second party assumes the former doesn’t want to spend time together. Then the former assumes the same about the second and so on.

    To me, making new friends means putting in almost all of the work at the beginning. Talk to everyone, touch them emotionally and physically (with moderation and limits of course). Everyone wants to be friends, but no one wants to be wrongly judged.

    I can’t remember if I read this somewhere or if I made it up, but one of the most motivating quotes I’ve ever heard is, “It’s a mistake to passively wait for others to befriend you.” As a natural introvert it was an important concept for me to grasp that a social life was unlikely to fall into my lap anytime soon unless I took the initiative to build relationships with other people.
