I knew a girl in college who everyone wanted to hang out with!
Whenever she was around, the gathering was filled with laughter and meaning.
Do you have any suggestions on how we can achieve something similar?
1. Be lighthearted when you meet people. Nobody wants to stick around someone who goes from zero to nuclear proliferation in less than five words. When meeting new people, talk about innocent stuff, like music, television, movies.
2. Be optimistic at first. When you talk to people don't be overly critical or negative. You want those first moments to be about you being a fun guy to be around. So crack some jokes about small stuff, and be the guy who seems to really like random stuff.
3. Be mysterious enough for people to wonder just how much you know, or have them guess just how big of a fan you are. Give them a hint, a taste, but make sure you let them know there's more to you. Make them want to know more about you. You're mysterious enough to invest time in.
4. Steal other people's material. That girl you mentioned. Copy her material and make it your own. It works on opening-lines and subject. Just steal it and make it your own stuff.
