How to Make Friends in a New Apartment
June 4, 2019
If you’re new to your Klingbeil community, you might be wondering how to connect with your fellow residents. If you’re willing to get outside your comfort zone a bit, it should be easy to find your new crew! Follow these tips to make new friends close to home.
Don’t miss resident events. From craft beer tastings to summer picnics in the courtyard, your property’s team probably hosts a regularly changing lineup of events. Whenever you’re available, make sure you go to them. This is an easy way not only to meet other people living in your building, but also to connect with the management staff and get to know them better.
Make the most of common areas. The pool, the shared event space, the fitness center. These are all spaces that many communities offer as added perks to their residents, free of any additional fees. So it makes a lot of sense to use them on a regular basis, especially if you’re looking to make friends with your neighbors. It’s easy to strike up a conversation by the pool or invite someone along to an event you’re hosting in the common area.
Simply say hello! When you get caught up in the hustle and bustle of daily life, it gets easy to rush past your neighbors without offering a greeting. Work hard to break this habit, and you might be surprised by how easy it is to get to know the other residents in your community. By simply smiling and saying hello, you open the door to future friendships.
