I am a student, and I always feel that I have not social skills enough.When I stay together with a person that I am not familar with very much ,I even don't know what to talk about with him.When there are a lot of my friends are talking something ,I want to say nothing to them . I wonder how to improve one's social skill,and how to get along well with the people who are around you? How to let them like you ,and be one person of them ? Excepting your advice .

hi eve5521,don't worry,that social skills can be learned gradually.the best way is to put yourself in the socity and take any chance to touch different kinds of people and communicate with them. you'll have a progress day by day.best wishes.

I was always a very shy person in my younger days and then someone came into my life and they lifted me, he was in the entertainment business and he inspired me so much I gained so much confidence in his faith in me and you know I found out that nearly everyone feels a little insecure at times and if you go through life reacting with people by showing interest in them, listening to them and treating everyone as just maube they could be shy too, looking after the other person so to speak, you soon overcome your shyness, a lot of peopl cover up their fears, just show interest in people and listen is the best advice anyone can give you and always remember you are as good as anyone else...confidence in yourself can help...
