Making friends seemed like the easiest thing to do as a child. New classmates, new lab partners, new neighbours, each had the potential to be a future best friend. But as you grew older and got busier, so did everyone else and suddenly, making friends just wasn’t that easy anymore. If you too are struggling with this, don’t despair, for it’s still possible to make friends as an adult, just in different ways.

Imagine grooving to your favourite artiste and catching someone's glance amidst the crowd. The next thing you know, you're both swaying to the beats with the littlest care for the world. That's how strong bonding over music can be—no obligation, no caution, no words and no dimes given!

More often than not, you're reluctant to go talk to your newly moved in neighbours because it’s a little out of your comfort zone. Well, we’d say, give it a chance, you don't have to form a deep bond, but it’d certainly be nice to have someone to go home to, for a casual chat, especially if you’re living alone.

While they say that working with your friends isn't always a good idea, it’s a little different when a work colleague turns into a friend. You develop mutual respect for each other for having been former colleagues and later, it only gets easier to make her your go-to whenever your boss throws a tantrum or your boyfriend’s being moody. Because she’ll get it.

While the idea of solo travel may seem daunting at first, it’s the surest way to meet new people. Think of the adventures waiting ahead as you spend nights in hostels, backpack across cities and strike up random conversations with complete strangers—who could just end up changing your life.
