I’m an awkward party goer. I don’t know if I come across that way, but I certainly feel that way. And then when I have to introduce friends who don’t know each other, forget it. Sound familiar?
That’s why I’m grateful for this article:
Let’s stop introducing the people we love based solely on what they do, who they cash their checks from, or what’s on their twitter profiles. Let’s instead start reminding them of who they are. Let’s start conversations that don’t begin and end with who has the most interesting job in the room
Basically, ditch the “This is Bob, and he works in accounting.” Instead how about “This is Sean, and he’s one of my most loyal friends and gives great gifts”?
