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

Encourage your friend to speak up

Your friend is a person of few words. Encourage your friend to speak up by asking questions that show care.

Do things together

Your friend enjoys 1-to-1 activities. Do things together recreationally to connect with your friend.

Be sensitive

Your friend may be quite sensitive and may be offended by some things you say in jest. If you may have unintentionally done so, be quick to apologise.

Learn about your friend’s values

Learn about what is important to your friend. He/she may not say it, but you can find out through interacting and intentional asking.

Be open to changes

Your friend may make changes without informing you. Be open to it and stay patient with your friend.
