    Get Started.. from the Start! Once you meet them, grab their attention. Don't do the usual introduction while introducing yourself. Don't stick with the usual, "Hey, I'm Joe, what's your name?" Go with the unique type, such as, "Hey I'm Joe, I bet your thrilled to meet me.." and put your arm out for them to shake your hand. If you think that is too selfish, you might want to go to something else like, "Hey, I'm Joe, I hope you're as happy to meet me as I am to meet you," then offer your hand and shake hands, while you are shaking hands, consider saying something like, "I hope I am unforgettable!" Be unforgettable and exciting. Take a risk!

    If you still don't have the courage to do all of this, (or any of this) think of it this way. If you guys end up knowing each other for a year or even more than that, you will clearly become great best friends or great family friends. Once this happens, you will eventually tell many people how you met. Think about this. If the other person tells how you guys met, you will be not only a funny person, but told as one! Don't let this chance slip away because you could regret it for years!
