Question: What is the key to convert an acquaintance into friend?
The key to convert your acquaintance into your friend is to:
- Focus on the friend and visualize yourself to be at his place and situation. Think of friend, not of yourself.
- Main issue is love on the whole and love, in its turn, is connected to heart; so, get close to his heart.
- Pay attention to things that are close to his heart whether he speaks or not.
- Self-disclosure is necessary to gain confidence and to take him into confidence.
- Be intimate in terms of knowing his views, goals, moral values and interests.
- Don’t unleash your closely-held secret.
- Forgive quite often as love and grudge cannot go side by side.
- No rules and regulations are there for friends.
- Love your friend.
- Never take him for granted.
