Welcome back to Episode 2 of the Less Alone Podcast! We’ve got a ton of updates for you!  We’ve now got a website and you can now find us everywhere on social media! Today’s big topic is: How to Make Friends. There are certain intricacies of adult friendships that can sometimes be tricky (especially compared to how easy it sometimes seemed as kids.) In this episode we dive into how different life stages truly impact the connections that we’re able to make, and keep, in the long term. We also take a look at how finding friends as an adult can often be a lot like dating… how there’s a certain chemistry involved with finding people that you just “click with”. We break down what it means to find a compatible vulnerability in the friendships you pursue and how your body language can aid — or impede — building strong connections. Finally, we end the episode with some great practical tips on how to make friends. For an incredible conversation on building connections, don’t miss out on today’s episode!
