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

Intentionally express yourself

Your friend is a person of few words. By intentionally expressing your thoughts and feelings, you can get a conversation going.

Keep your language plain

Avoid talking about big ideas or abstract theories, which your friend may find confusing. Keep your language plain, simple and straightforward.

Do things together

Your friend enjoys doing more than talking. Find interesting activities you can engage in together.

Give freedom

Give your friend the freedom of choice. Refrain from tying down your friend to any decisions or commitments, unless necessary.

Be open to change

Your friend is likely to make changes to schedule, plans and decisions without telling you. Be patient and don’t let it get on your nerves.
