Get to know people quickly.
Don't ask "What do you do?"
Boringgggg. Think of something more clever. Be curious about who the other person actually is.
"What is your story?"
This is a better question because you get to dive into WHO the person is.
"Are you from here?"
You usually get their background and work as well as a more detailed understanding of the person's past
It's okay to show weakness. In fact, it makes people trust you faster. Don't go spilling all your problems, but know when to drop in a little vulnerability
Be genuinely curious about the other person. Dive deeply into the things you have in common
The best relationships happen when you're having fun!
