How to Find Friends That Share Interests

by eHow Relationships & Family Editor

Finding friends that share your same interests does not have to be difficult. Many people are looking for friends, and they want friends who enjoy the same spots, activities, social events and music. It can be as easy as attending one social event or going online and meeting people in friend seeker websites. Learn how to find friends that share the same interests as you.

Decide why you want to meet new people. Some people relocate and some people want to make new friends within the town they have been living in for years.

Check out online friend seeking websites like friendfinder.com, wayn.com or Facebook. You can meet friends that share the same interests in these websites, and even do a search for certain qualities that you like in a new friend.

Go to social events in your area--maybe they support a cause you love or feature a band that you enjoy. As soon as you meet someone at one of these events, you will know you share that interest to start.

Join a class in your community. Take a yoga class, get involved in pottery and crafts or possibly a recreational sport.

Get involved in a sports team at your community center. You will find people with the same sport interest and you can start from there. Most likely if they are into joining community classes, you will have more than one thing in common.

Meet friends through your old friends. Sometimes we can find a connection through a friend. If you and you old friend have things in common, then most likely you will have things in common with their other friends.
