No one is like to start a conversation with a person who looks angry or unhappy. Extroverts are more extroverts because they have a charm that attracts people to get involved in a conversation with them.

Those who smile make more friends easily and what an extrovert needs in life, is more friends, more happiness. Smile is the healthiest habit which helps you to make a connection with strangers too.

5. Get Involved in conversation
Peoples have a tendency that they start a conversation with the last line you speak if you just say yes or no in a conversation that gives a clear message that you are not interested in the conversation. You just need to expand your answer to give more conversation topics to others.
For example: If someone asks you, how was your weekend, don’t just say it was fine, add some more details about it like you finished your favorite movie or visit your nearby park. Ask them more about their interest or plan too.
6. Don’t use your phone in public
Mobile phones make you more introverted, if using the phone is not urgent put it aside and explore the real world. If you use a mobile phone in public means you are disinterested in other people and they may lose interest in you.
Stay fully engaged with the people you’re with, or branch out and introduce yourself to someone new if you’re somewhere alone. Meet new people with new energy and enthusiasm.
