The best company at a party is the one that knows how to talk to people. They can make new friends quickly and easily, or keep an old conversation going with someone they’ve known for years. It’s not about being the most interesting person there–it’s more about making other people feel like they’re interesting enough. Here are 10 ways to be the best company in any room!
Learn to read people quickly.
You don’t need to be a mind reader, but if you can get a sense of what someone is interested in, you can talk about that. If they’re into sports, talk about the game last night. If they like books, ask them what their favorite book is.
Find common ground.
This goes hand in hand with reading people. If you can find a common interest, it makes for easy conversation. This doesn’t mean they have to be the same age or from the same place–it’s about finding something in your experiences that overlaps with theirs.
A great way to get people talking is asking them questions and then listening. People love being listened to, and they’ll love talking about themselves even more. It’s a great way to learn more about them, and it also makes them feel good.
Make others feel interesting.
This is the key to being the best company in any room. No one wants to talk to someone who just talks about themselves all night. Be interested in the people around you, and make them feel interesting. Ask them questions, listen to their stories, and be engaged in their conversations.
Be a good host.
If you’re hosting a party, it’s your job to make sure everyone is having a good time. Make sure there’s food and drinks available, introduce people to each other, and make sure everyone knows what’s going on.
Be a good guest.
When you’re invited to an event or party, it means someone wants you there! Be the best company in that room by being interested in other people, talking with them about interesting things, and making them feel at home. If they offer food or drinks, take them!
Not everyone is a social butterfly, but if you want to be the best company in a party, you have to be social. Talk to as many people as possible, and make an effort to connect with them. It might feel weird at first, but it’ll get easier the more you do it.
This goes hand in hand with being social. Be open and friendly to everyone you meet, and make an effort to get to know them. Smile, introduce yourself, and make conversation. It’s the best way to make friends!
No one wants to be around someone who’s negative all the time. Be positive and upbeat, and make sure your energy is infectious. People will want to be around you if you’re always happy!
This is the most important thing of all. If you try to be someone you’re not, people will see right through it. Just relax and be yourself–the people who are worth knowing will like you for who you are.
Be the best company in a party, and be the life of it! You’ll make friends easily if you follow these tips–and everyone wants to have good people at their events. They want great conversations, interesting stories, and someone they can count on to make sure things go smoothly. So be the best company you can be, and make everyone happy!
