An old adage suggests that you can’t be too rich or too thin. Well, now, at least according to some experts, you can never have too many friends or social contacts either. They suggest that people were made for “stimulations” (both mental and physical) and for relationships. And, while networking may sound like something we all “do” to enhance our careers, experts suggest it can be beneficial for also enriching our social circle.

They note that no matter what we want to achieve in life, most of it is accomplished via other people, so social networking is equally as important as professional networking, and the more people you meet, greet, and get to know, the greater your odds of success.

But, bridging the gap between acquaintance and friend, interest and paramour, etc can be tricky and challenging. Here a two ways to ease the interaction and the transition.

· Develop a caring attitude Do like the song says and smile, encouraging the whole world to smile along with you. You’ll also want to work on developing an overall positive attitude and projecting it on others. If you’re happy, confident and nice, others will likely want to be around you and gravitate toward you.

· Give them good reason to reach out to you: Being kind and generous can give others a glimpse into who you really are and what you’re all about. Make yourself and your surroundings inviting and see what happens. Remember, everyone wants to be surrounded by “successful” and inspirational people.
