At your school, you may have a specific group of friends who you enjoy hanging out with on a daily basis. The group you eat lunch with, hang out with between classes or even spend time with after school or on the weekends. Do you have a classmate who doesn’t seem to have many friends or often eats lunch alone?
Maybe he or she is new or is shy and not very good at meeting people. Invite him or her to eat lunch with you. Getting to know someone you don't know is a great way to make a friend!
Invite a classmate you don't know to sit with you at lunch. Not sure what to say to your new friend? Here are some ideas on what you can talk about. Chances are, you'll find something you both have in common.
Just make an effort to be more friendly to your classmates who you donвЂ™t know. Smile at them when you see them and say вЂњhello.вЂќ Or go out of your way to ask them a question or tell them a joke when youвЂ™re in class together.
