Connecting with friends means letting them to know you and vice versa.
Talk about yourself, disclose your life facts, opinions and feelings. This way, you have have subjects to talk about and you form lasting bonds.

That’s why it’s important to have a firm grasp on your strengths, weaknesses, opinions, interests, etc.
Being in the present moment is one of the most important traits of improving social skills.
By paying attention to what’s going on, you catch the details you can use later in the conversation.

To get better you need to get out there, consistently practice conversation skills, make mistakes and learn from them. There is no other way.
