I' m a man who attends org meetings and has been a leader in organizations. If you treat people with
respect, do your best to make people comfortable, and stay aware of the power dynamic that might exist between you
and the person you' re talking with, I think you' re basically fine.
Just treat people like people and nobody' s going to accuse you of sexual harassment out of the blue.
Or maybe this is a social anxiety thing, in which case my best advice is to take five minutes before the meeting to sit
somewhere quiet and deeply through your diaphragm, focusing just on your breath and redirecting
your attention when your mind wanders. Then go make yourself talk to somebody you otherwise wouldn' t. It probably
won' t be as bad as you think!

I had a really weird situation happen where I was nearing the end of my 2 yr long soured relationship and met a girl
at an org function that started flirting with me. Didn' t find out til later that she had a bf, hooked up anyways. total
dirtbag move i know, nyr done anything like that before. Ended my relationship. She' s still together with her bf. Hung
out with the both of them, shit was rly weird, i honestly can' t tell if he knows or not. I' backed off like entirely,
stopped answering her txts. now i' m just paranoid she' s gonna tell everybody that my attraction to her was
completely unwarranted and that i' m some kind of creeper. Although it would be cool to be with somebody that has
the same politics as me, I' ll just leave that shit to chance when i start dating again. Outside of any kind of org
I rly don' t think i' m that suave and forreal don' t have any game whatsoever and don' t ever hit on anybody. the last
person i was with for the last two years i literally met at yoga and told her "i' m a queer anarcho commie buddhist drug
addict in recovery with five years clean off of hard drugs and a divorce getting finalized next month, I think you' re
beautiful and i wanna cook you dinner".
As far as the social anxiety thing goes I think i talk more the more anxious i get, sarcasm runs rampant, and i just
hope i don' t say anything offensive.
