The new girl...

In our lives at some point or another we have all been the "new girl" (or guy... whichever gender you are!).

At the moment I am the "new girl" everywhere. I've just moved to a new town, I've started a new uni course and all my classes are new, new faces at my part-time job, new people at the gym, new neighbours (that I still haven't met or even seen. I've been living in my unit and sharing a wall with this lady for almost 2 weeks now. Isn't that weird?!)

Hi, my name is Ellie and I am the new girl.

I guess I'm not the only one to a certain degree. The fact is that most of my new uni class mates are also "new".

With friends and family or in a place that I am familiar with I feel confident and bubbly and can chat to anyone. Most of my friends will disagree with me when I say this but, when it comes to meeting people, I am generally shy. The only thing that seems to get me by most times is the fact that I talk a lot. (Ask any close friends, or my boyfriend - he bares witness to the "Ellie" chatter a lot) I am an uncomfortable talker. I yip-yap and chitter chat and often do the awkward laugh or giggle when it feels necessary (of course when things get awkward.)

I think being a bit of a chatter puts me at an advantage when it comes to meeting people. Often I find that if someone doesn't start a conversation at some point, one will never start and all the "newbies" sit around awkwardly playing on their iPhones or twiddling their fingers. I'm every shy, new persons dream! That girl who tries to make the uncomfortable silence comfortable... if that's possible?! lol

How do you meet people? What are your "tactics" when it comes to introducing yourself or making new friends?

  6. Aw, this was an incredibly good post. Spending some time and actual effort to
    produce a top notch article… but what can I say…
    I put things off a whole lot and don't seem to get anything done.
    Look into my homepage ... freeporn

    yet I by no means found any attention-grabbing article like yours.
    It is beautiful price enough for me. Personally,
    if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will
    be a lot more helpful than ever before.
