Life has been a bundle of unexpected moves. But I'm dealing with them. One thing I've just come to realize, is that while I'm friendly and a bundle of joy, I tend to keep to myself. So I decided to hang out with more people who like to do what I do. Get out and explore more. Here are a few tips so that it doesn't seem too daunting.
1. Get Comfortable. You don't have to talk to them face to face if you don't want to. Go on social media, click on a geotag near you ( or a hashtag, mine would be #Oakland or #EploreOak ) and comment on person you think you might have similar interest as you.
2. Set a date. After you've talked for a few weeks, days, how much ever you feel comfortable, meet in a social place. I usually meet for coffee first them we get to doing whatever we want. Usually it involves #OOTD pics, landscape photos or portraits.
3. Let the magic happen. Even if you haven't met someone in person, you might feel a connection to them. That's the beauty of social media. I've meet two great people on social media and that number will soon go to three. Be you, you've already had endless conversations about that certain photographer you admire or that place you just dream of visiting.
It's a simple 1-2-3 step. If the conversation flows, then you now have a new friend who lkes to do things you do. I hope my awkwardly given advice helps.
