Here’s how you can connect with your friend better:

Compliment your friend often

Praise your friend on tangible things like looks, achievements and contributions to your social circle.

Don’t interrupt your friend

Do not assume that you know where your friend is headed to in a conversation, allow him/her to finish sentences instead of having you complete it.

Present ideas logically

Be prepared to offer accurate details and facts during any discussion with your friend. Try not to skip steps, especially if it has to do with a favour you need.

Appreciate your friend’s consistency

Chances are, your friend is usually the one who does the thoughtful, boring things that makes life easier for everyone. Thank your friend for always cleaning up the mess!

Do something thoughtful

Your friend feels the most loved when someone contributes meaningfully; practical acts of services like grabbing breakfast or a coffee.
