Would you like to learn how to become more comfortable meeting new people? And even have fun doing so? If so, take one more minute, and read on.
Can meeting people be fun?
Fact: Meeting new people can positively change your life. It’s a fact because doing so undoubtedly changed my life, and I hear from people weekly about how doing so has positively changed theirs. Positive change is fun.
Fact: Meeting new people can improve mental health.
Fact: Many people find meeting strangers even more terrifying than death.
Fact: Meeting strangers can be fun. It is true. It happens randomly in the real world and at events. Lots of strangers are fun people waiting to be met. But you may not know or believe that if you have never met any of them.
Meeting strangers can be fun in the real world:
You are allowed to have fun with many aspects of your life, even if you have never done so. Being playful while you are in public, and in a position to meet new people is a great way to break the ice for several reasons.
When you make a joke or have fun, people will often be able to relate to what you are joking about. This can build rapport and lead to a conversation once you have a shared experience through humour.
Generally, people enjoy laughter and being entertained. It can snap someone out of their routine and provide a much-needed break from daily stressors. Of course, not everyone enjoys a good joke or surprise comment, but more do than you may think.
When you express a pun, a joke or a funny observation, you are being authentic by being in the moment. Being authentic is a critical way to make connections with people.
How to Have Fun Meeting Strangers at an Event:
That’s easy, even if you don’t consider yourself to be a fun person. All you have to do is attend a networking event that was designed to be playful. There you will meet other people who are interested in having fun while meeting new people. Why not attend a free event? Take a look at:
