This is not a post about how to get more Facebook friends. Most people have more Facebook friends that they do not know than the ones they know. So, are they really friends?
"You can make more friends in 2 months by becoming genuinely interested in other people than you can in 2 years by trying to get other people interested in you."
If we took a poll of the people you have any kind of relationship with and asked them if they see you as a person who is more interested in others than in promoting yourself, how do you think they would respond?
Our perception of ourselves is not always in tune with how others see us.
What would you say is the key to being perceived as a person who truly is interested in others?
I think the best starting point is to Listen more than you speak.
I have tried to live by the idea that to have a friend, you must be a friend.
