WNDC July 27th, Beach Bar

Postby Deadpoet » Sun, 24 Jul 2005 10:13 pm

Hi Everyone, It's that time of the week again.

This weeks edition of WNDC (Wed Night Drinking Club) will be back to an old favorite - Beach Bar at Robertson Quay. It's right behind the Robertson Quay Hotel.

Look for us in the lawn chair along the River.

See you all Wed, as always, 8pm.

I went to one or two WDNC's before but it was really hard to break into a conversation with other people as it seems everybody knew each other and I went by myself. Whats the best way to break into the group?

Offer them drinks, strong cigarettes, nasty jokes etc

Dude, I know this feeling.. all depends on the mixture of the group. When you are only 5ppl, instead of 40, it will be much easier! Don't give up..

Simply introduce yourself and talk to them... Should be easy... Don't necessarily wait to be approached, take the first step...

I had this problem too when I attended 1~2 gatherings previously (not from WDNC). Conversation kinda run out easily. Or is it because I am local?

Maybe I didnt manage to come out with a good topic? :oops:
Since then I have stopped going. Didn't have the confident anymore..Maybe I am just not cut out for gathering like these.. :(

Don't be so shy! Just try to be yourself... You should challenge yourselve by trying to get into new groups as often as possible! If you have problems with getting to know new people, you should overcome them through constant "training" :wink:
