You can’t make someone like you, but you can behave in ways that will make it slightly more likely. Here are strategies to keep in mind – not ways to manipulate people or to be fake, but to ensure that your desire to be friendly effectively shines through!

 

1. Smile. Studies show that the amount of time you smile during your conversation does influence how friendly you’re perceived to be.

 

2. Be easily impressed, entertained, and interested. Most people get more pleasure from wowing you with their humor and insight than from being wowed by your humor and insight.

 

3. Have a friendly, open, engaged demeanor. Lean toward people, nod, say “uh-huh,” turn your body to face the other person’s body

 

4. Try to remember the person’s name
