Friends are the family we choose for ourselves.
Once you are an adult the days of 'easy made friends' are over. It becomes particularly hard when you are an expat, the trailing spouse with only casual work and/or have simply never been put into the situation of having to 'actively make friends'.
How do we do that?
Well, think back about those people you have been friends at first sight from the get go... and learn about the Ben Franklin effect (that you can try out for yourself) AND get some hands-on advice from an extrovert who has been living in 6different countries on 3 different continents in the last 18years and has a trackrecord of making friends fast - aka. me, Nic Scholtysik.
