Nice to meet you!
I never want to lose my ability to make connections with other people. As a journalist, you need that ability to do your job. It’s more important than that though. As a human you need that ability to remain grounded in society and civilization.
I enjoy meeting new people, plain as that! To walk into a situation and be personable and open is something that would kill me if I lost.
So if you see me, say hello! Because if I see you first, you can bet that’s what I’ll do.
