If you are thinking of carpooling for the first time and you are not fairly social and you get social anxiety? Calm down, it is okay and we all have our first time. The first time can either go really good or bad, through this article we will try to help you get that confidence and how you can feel more comfortable and feel less awkward while carpooling for the first time.
Don’t litter the car
Don’t eat or drink and spill anything in the car or stain the car. You are not the car owner so don’t be disrespectful.
Just be yourself and try to have a normal conversation and ask simple questions like where he/she is from, where does they work, and their opinions on carpooling, simple things to just get started.
Don’t be rude
Now, there is a difference between being shy and rude, being rude while sitting in someone else’s car and showing your attitude as the first impression will make your chance slimmer to get rides. It is not compulsory that you have to talk but show good gestures, say thank you, and greet.
He/She is not a driver
He/She is not a driver and you are not in a cab, Car owners are people like you commuting to work and back to home and offering you a ride for a very cheap price on their route.
In conclusion, the other passengers also might be first-timers like you, besides you will not be in a car with aliens so don’t take it too seriously and try to loosen up and just enjoy the ride. Even if you don’t have a fun conversion, you can listen to music to feel less awkward.
Hope the article helps you even a little bit, if the Ride Giver is the one who makes you uncomfortable and unsafe with his vibes then you can pick another Rider Giver, Quick Ride has over 4 million users, and finding a carpool will not be much of a problem.
