ArmedLiberal has some excellent advice for those dating.
However, I’d like to point out that his advice can – and should – be applied to any social situation.
Don?t try and ?sell? yourself, it?s boring and ineffective. Help her sell herself, and in doing so you?ll sell yourself far more effectively than you could otherwise.
BE yourself. That’s what people respond to best.
Don?t inventory your possessions, inventory your passions.
Well said. I don’t care WHAT you own. I care more about what makes someone want to be part of this crazy world. I want to know what makes someone tick.
Basically, don?t assume that you?re the only interesting person in the room.
Amen. There are many fascinating people in the world. Some are occasionally found in the same place at the same time. Let someone else get a word in edgewise. It’s amazing in that you might actually learn something….or at least gather blog fodder.
Found by reading comments and following links over at Devra’s place. Sometimes NOT having your own site up and running can be a GOOD thing.
