I didn’t quite feel like the man on the left but I did feel uncomfortable. Why? Because for the first 15 minutes or so i didn’t know anyone and it was a SOCIAL event. I genuinely believe attending social events, not knowing people, rather than BUSINESS events is so much harder. When we attend the latter it really is so easy. Everyone is there to network, to look for new opportunities, to find more knowledge. Yet when we go to social gatherings there are no central themes. Oh, and by the way, there were no women at the event i attended. For me, that made it doubly hard.
