If you don't have friends and want to expand your social circle, simple tips can help. Potential friends are everywhere; it's just a matter of recognizing them, says psychologist Iryna Kulik on Instagram.

Interest clubs and groups

Join clubs or groups that gather people with similar hobbies or interests. These could include book clubs, sports groups, or culinary evenings.


Participate in volunteering events or organizations to meet your community and do good deeds together with others.

Educational courses

Enroll in courses or seminars related to your interests, such as language courses, workshops, or programming classes.

Travel more, relax, be an active participant in this world, and smile every day.

Community events

Attend local events like festivals, fairs, or concerts where you can meet people from different walks of life.

Social media and online communities

Join online forums, social networks, or apps aimed at meeting new people. Initiating a friendly comment under someone's post or sending a direct message can be welcomed.

Work environment

Remember, your workplace can also be a platform to meet interesting and diverse individuals.

The expert advises not to fear stepping out of your comfort zone and being open to new connections. Sometimes, you don't have to actively seek; new friends often appear unexpectedly.
