Day 12 – Introduce yourself to someone new. Start a conversation with them.
Ok, so I’ve always been sorta shy. (insert collective gasp)
With age and increased confidence, I have found it pretty easy to speak to strangers. If all else fails and they don’t speak back, there’s no love lost. I mean, the person’s a stranger so the odds of seeing them again are pretty slim.
I can’t remember the first conversation I had with Rumple, but I do remember being super nervous and smiling awkwardly.
I tend to break the ice with a joke. Either in line at the store, on the bus during my morning commute, or at the gym, there’s always the opportunity to have a conversation with a stranger.
Be careful though, being uber friendly to a stranger could send the wrong message… Well, with the opposite sex. Scratch that, it could be a good problem for some 🙂
Go out and meet a someone new today.
Do you have any stranger turned friend stories? Share.
