We all want to feel special. We all have our personal achievements and we like when people take an interest in our ordinary life.

So if you meet people for the first time, don't be afraid to be curious. Ask them what they like and what they hate. When they tell a sad story, encourage them by a pat on the shoulder. Or when they tell a happy story, put your hand up and high-five. Touching can help you create a relaxed atmosphere.

#4. Smile is your weapon

That is simple, but just an ordinary smile can help you make a good impression. Smiling can help you create a comfortable atmosphere and decrease stress hormones. Remember that you should not smile too widely, as it will look weird and nervous.
