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

Speak up

Your friend is an energetic person who may unconsciously dominate a conversation. If there’s something important you need to say, intentionally speak up.

Have fun

Your friend loves to have fun – and the best way to connect is to do something exciting, fun or new with him/her.

Agree to disagree

Your friend, like you, can be very passionate about certain causes. Sometimes you may be in opposing end of these causes. Agree to disagree, but don’t let it affect your relationship.

Be warm and affirming

No matter how emotional or passionate you feel about something, be careful not to become cutting or offensive in your words.

Expect change

Your friend is a living expression of spontaneity. Expect changes to plans, ideas, schedules and decisions. Be patient with him/her.
