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

Invite your friend to share

Your friend is a person of few words. Invite him/her to share by asking thoughtful questions and giving undivided attention.

Keep it light-hearted

Don’t get too serious with your friend, whether at work or in a social setting. Your friend likes things light-hearted and fun.

Keep it simple

Your friend is unlikely to grasp your immense and complex feelings. Whatever you think or feel, break it down simply for them.

Be objective

Sometimes your friend may come across insensitive or careless with words. Don’t take it personally but be objective – your friend is likely talking about the issue than making a personal attack.

Give freedom

Your friend wants freedom and sometimes may avoid people altogether for that purpose. Don’t press for answers but give your friend the time and space to be alone.
