If you are living in the hostel when your parents are not around to tell us what’s good and what’s bad while talking to your relatives or friends, we often forget the etiquettes while talking and behaving with best friends. Best friends don’t take it seriously because they are closed ones to our heart, let’s not forget that manners you follow today will stick around to you for the rest of your life. So, here are some social manners and etiquettes that can improve your social life.
Social Manners and Etiquettes that can improve your social life
1. Phone call
In case, you miss a call from one of your friends your reaction would be very casual, this can create a bad impression in their minds. You should drop a message as soon as possible if you cannot call at that time, to know whether its emergency or just a call.
Don’t forget about privacy, we like to take care of our privacy then why not caring about others? when using your friend’s laptop, don’t go through personal stuff unless they give permission for it.
for example, We often face this situation, your phone is in your hand then you show a picture of yours in front of friends. They swipe left and right and see your pictures and laugh, Think twice before going through anyone’s property.
3. Share the food
Leave the last piece of pizza for the best friend. You feel happier when you start sharing. Your best friends also notice this thing from you, this can create a connection between you and your friend.
4. Be Active
If your friend cooks for you, try to help them to clean up the Kitchen, Help them to wash dishes. If your friend is cleaning house, don’t be lazy this will leave a bad impact on friends.
5. Don’t forget to return borrowed things
Payback borrowed money as soon as possible, It does not matter how little is the amount. Never make them ask you for it.
“A friend in need is a friend indeed”
6. Be Grateful
Your friend is buying you food when you are running out of money, Try to return the favor. They will not forget about it. This is the essential etiquette in your life.
7. Don’t take things for granted
Never forget to tell them ‘Thank you”. They are not expecting anything from you but it’s your responsibility to say this word. Make sure you return the book in time, they cared for you hence they give you the book to read. Say Thanks and give their books (or anything you borrowed from them) in time.
8. Don’t surf social media sites when you are with friends
When your friend wants to talk to you and you started surfing on the smartphone, this is the most common mistake our youth is doing. Please listen to what your friends are saying, spend good time with them, leave the smartphone and have a conversation with them.
Your behavior towards your friends shows your actual mannerism. So, Be honest and be free with your friends. Do something which makes you good as a person. These etiquettes you should follow to improve communication and connection between you and your friend, this will eventually help you to lead a better student-college life.
