Words do a great job of conveying your feelings, but there is nothing quite like physical contact when it comes to making a connection. Simple things like a handshake, hug, or even just a pat on the back show people that you’re genuine. When you meet up with a friend today, tell them how nice it is to see them. They might be taken aback by your affection, but they’ll love how it makes them feel. And you will love making them feel that way.
