I could give you hundreds of tips about improving your social skills for different situations. But there is one tip that covers them all. So, if you want to improve your social skills RIGHT NOW, here is my advice for you:
Completely commit to being you.
That's right. It's as simple as that. The more you can commit to being yourself, the less you have to worry about what others think of you. When you are unapologetically you, people can either choose to like you or not. They can connect with you on a personal or professional level or they can move on. You can't worry about it. All you can do is be true to yourself, be real, and be authentic. Once you have achieved this mindset, you can be free to look for people who like your style.
