This is my last hike for now. I cancelled the next one because I need to work more, and wanted more sleep. This was a lot of fun. My group is always split into two. One group will be the group that just wants to exercise, not interested in meeting new people or making new friends and another group that are new to my events. They want to meet new people, enjoy the scenery, and socialize. One of the main reasons I create these events is because I want people to meet others, make new friends, socialize and etc. When I started joining these events 2 years ago, I met a lot of new people and they helped me grow. Now, I want to help others grow as well and help them make new friends. I always believed that everyone you meet will teach you something no matter how brief the encounter is or how small the lessons are. This hike was great because there were a couple of people that went there for photography and to view the scenery. When people are taking pictures, people always smile. This is what makes the atmosphere great. Everyone smiles, everyone is more open to having fun, goofing around, and being silly. Easier to talk to people or create conversations to people that are smiling. Everyone was having a great time, taking selfies, making friends and goofing around. I can see them all smiling. I was more like a tour guide lol. I was like, “this has a great angle, this is a great spot over here, blah blah blah.” I make sure everyone is safe, no one gets lost, everyone gets to the good spots so that everyone can just enjoy and have a good time. I take care of the parts that are not fun and require responsibility so that all the members can just enjoy themselves.
A lot of guys that join my hikes do not have a lot of social skills. My hikes are great to learn social skills because a lot of people are open to talking or creating conversations. It is how I learned a few years ago by practicing. This is the only thing I can do for the guys. I can give you the chance to fail, chance to practice, or experience. I can offer you pain so you can learn. I do not talk much when I am hiking. I only talk to people I know for a long time. I do not talk to them much also. I am so busy with pics and making sure everything else is good. The only time I ever talk to a girl is if I see her walking alone. If she seems like she is having a hard time connecting with others then I will talk to her and then I will invite a guy or another to join into the conversation as well. This hike is great because I do not even need to make jokes or lighten the mood or be funny. A lot of the people were already having a great time. At times I will tell people in the end of the hike to make friends, then go on trips with them, fall for someone and have fun always. It is the best thing I can give to anyone. It is the reason I put my time and effort into these things.
I may host a snow hike in the future but no plans to go out and etc. at the moment. I just want to work.
