Being African-like in the U.S. -- MegaHard Difficulty
It is bad. First I began regularly attending the tech talk meetups. Then the board game meetups. I've recently bought a bunch of tailored shirts and pressed suit coats and designer cardigans from Nordstrom and other similar places. I rented a sportscar, I went to a bunch of different places, talked about the surroundings, I imagined what it is that they would enjoy talking about, tried talking about those things. Had a few pretty good conversations with some. But then I get no phone numbers. No Instagram handles. No Twitter handles. Not even their Facebooks or email addresses. Nothing.
