Paging Dr. NerdLove

Dec 29, 2016

Parties are a great place to meet people, make new friends, forge new social connections and get the occasional sloppy make-out. They're a time when everyone is open to meeting new people, and where introducing yourself is not only allowed but welcomed. 

But for some people, parties are a special form of hell, especially if you don't know many people who are already there. 
Like bars, they’re full of people you don’t know but who all seem to know everybody else, and everyone seems to know how to navigate the unspoken rules like they were born to it. And unlike bars, there’s often a feeling of being obligated to go - even when you really don’t want to.

Knowing how to navigate a party where you don’t know many people is an invaluable skill... but first you have to not lose your mind in the process. This week, the Doc leads you some of the rules for navigating a party full of strangers with confidence, and have an amazing time in the process.

Show Highlights:

  • The right way to pre-game a party
  • Making your arrival
  • How to make it through a party when you're just not up for it
  • The best way of meeting people at parties: have other people do the work
  • Never forgetting a name (or a face) ever again

... and so much more.
