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

Share your thoughts and feelings openly

Your friend would love you to be open about your thoughts, feelings and emotions. Speak with warmth and openness.

Talk about the details

Instead of talking about the big picture or the gist, talk about the details of things that have happened. It’s your friend’s way of connecting with you.

Be practical

Ideals and dreams don’t excite your friend as much as it does you. Focus on the practical and realistic aspect of your proposals.

Focus on their experience

Your friend is likely to reference experience a lot for his/her decisions today. Use positive experiences to convince them.

Be decisive

You may appear wishy-washy to your friend if you don’t have a definitive answer. Answer with certainty, even though you’re not entirely sure.
