So Apparently my list of 101 Mingle Tips has not solved all of the dating and social skills problems in the world. There are still a lot of lonely, poorly mannered, and socially uncomfortable people out there. So here I am. Back with more tips for you. (*New info in blue italics)
I have decided to give updates and new information on each of my original 101 Tips For Social Success With Class.
You can find the updates in blue italics at the end of the original post at the bottom of this page. Happy mingling!
I have compiled a list of 101 mingling tips that I plan to post in blog form here one at a time, once a week (usually every Friday). I will also devote some of the blogs to answering your mingling questions.
Definition of a mingle: any social situation from which you can benefit.
Examples of mingling situations:
*And much more...
I love this topic. This is going to be good.
My first tip is the foundation of my entire program. The next 100 tips will all be connected to this one in some way. Here it is:
MINGLE TIP #1: HAVE A "HANG OUT" MINDSET
Here are some thoughts:
(1) The hang out, casual mindset is the absolute key to being successful in social situations. When you have a "hang out" mindset, you immediately take pressure off whatever it is that you are doing. You aren't trying to impress anyone. You aren't trying to look cool. You will also eliminate that creepy "hitting on" vibe.
(2) The hang out mindset works in any social situation. At a party? You are just hanging out. In a job interview? Just hanging out. Talking to a beautiful woman or handsome man? Just hanging out. You get the idea. . You are just hanging out, being yourself. Whatever happens happens.
(3) Having a hang out mindset doesn't mean that you get sloppy. You can do your best to be professional, civilized, mannerly, etc. but you will not let yourself put too much pressure on the situation. There are few, if any, social situations that are worth selling yourself out and trying to be someone you aren't.
If you have to be constantly reminding yourself that you are just hanging out, so be it. Keep that thought in the front of your thinking. So relax and just hang out. And see what happens.
UPDATE: (4) Having a "hang-out" mindset means that you don't have to be fake. There is no pass/fail situation going on if you have a casual mindset. You are just being yourself and seeing what happens. This is the key to really finding comfort and success in any social situation. Get yourself in a casual, composed mindset and you will always be able to be at your best.
