Engage in Conversation

I have tried to make it a habit of introducing myself to those I do not know, even prior to a formal introduction. I don’t want awkward moments of silence or wondering whom an individual is while I wait for a host or common friend to make the introduction.

This practice has made it easier for me to strike up conversations in various public places. If I catch someone’s eye, rather than perform the standard practice of quickly looking away and then struggling not to meet that person’s eyes again, I’ll simply say, “Hello, I’m Matt.”
