Three Unconventional Ways I Still Make Friends in my Late Twenties

It’s also great for introverts.

While I’m happy to have the friends that I have, I still want to make new friends.

Here’s how I do it, and how you can too.

1. Put Yourself Out There

Making friends is downstream of how much you expose yourself to other people.

If nobody knows you exist, you won’t make any friends.

Fortunately, you don’t necessarily have to “go out” in the real world to make friends.

You can do it online too.

I have made plenty of friends on Medium, through my blog, my newsletter, and by simply interacting on forums.

In the real world, putting yourself out there means going regularly to the same places so you can meet the other people who also go there regularly.

2. Reach Out

It’s good to go out but it’s also important to reach out to people.

Luckily, it’s much easier to do so online.

I’ve reached out to authors whose books I read, bloggers whose blogs I read, and Medium writers whose articles I read.
