10 Tips for Making Friends

Friendship costs nothing but time and attention, and it gives just about everything that matters in life. These suggestions will help you make—and keep—friends.

Make a List

Make a list of all your acquaintances and friends, past and present. Go through your address book (do you still have one?), your cell phone, and your e-mail. Write down everyone you enjoy spending time with. Reach out to one person every week or so to meet for lunch or to call and chat with.
