Men often try to impress others in a conversation, but that can backfire. Instead, when joining a group conversation, wait for the right moment to politely ask if you can join. Be genuinely interested in the topic and ask questions to spark a debate. When someone asks about you, give a brief answer and gauge their interest. Offer to send them a promotional copy of your book if they show genuine interest. Avoid following up too much and respect people's boundaries.
