Have you ever wanted to reach out to someone but didn’t quite know what to say? Maybe it’s a friend you’ve fallen out of touch with, or someone you know in passing but would like to get to know better.

Make New Friends ・5 min read
I don’t know about you, but COVID has reduced my social life to work, family, and the occasional zoom call with a friend. There’s no opportunity in my day-to-day to meet new people unless it’s a networking call.

Here's what you can do to have more chance encounters.
