Break The Ice- Over Ice

 

Is alcohol our generations new go to ice breaker?

I feel as if most people can agree that in a new setting or group of people ice breaking activities can never hurt. I am probably the mostextrovert and outgoing breed of person alive, but I still appreciate a little 30 second mini bio activity, or being asked the generic favorite food, favorite tv-show questions. In a college classroom setting ice breaking activities come with moving our chairs into a large semicircle, or standing amidst a large lecture of peers. In a generic college social setting however we tend to turn to amoreliquid approach, and breaking the ice comes served over ice.We turn to alcohol to ease the tension that comes along with a first date, intermixing our groups of friends or party settings among total strangers. I mean slurring my own name and giggling at the mispronunciation of my major makes for meeting new people so much more unmemorable!Think about it, when’s the last time you set out to meet entirely new people in a social setting and decided sobriety was the way to go? Maybe this is just the chronicles of a blackout, but I always go with a few sips to take the edge of an awkward initial encounter.
