For a while, all social events did for me was make me a better player of “Snake” on the old Nokia phone. And I want to share with you all some funny stories of the insane things I did to force myself out of my shy delusion and to have no choice but to become good at talking to strangers. Even a couple of years into my travels, I was still a little awkward around people that I didn't know very well yet. The catch-22 here is that you can more comfortable the more time you spend with people, but how do you get that time in the first place if you are too awkward to be around?
That's when I discovered Couchsurfing, and realized that I could invite interesting people to my city and hang out with them for several days at a time.
