    I've recently added "socializing" to the list of things I want to improve on while on this nofap journey.

    If you have any "social challenges" you'd like to read someone attempt, post them here. I may or may not do them. The idea is that I will be referring to this list any time I feel stale and I'll attempt to do one of them. I'll post results afterwards. If the challenge can potentially help me, I'll consider doing it.

    Show me what you got.

    Edit: These challenges are meant to grow me as a person. Doing these challenges without this goal in mind defeats the purpose (unless it's to maintain & sharpen an already existing skill)

    There is this gym nearby where the instructor is very sociable. I also invited some of mu high school mates there. Started talking to them about how things are going. It is a great experience since before going to thag gym I have a dead social life. So I'm very happy that little by little my social circle is getting bigger.

    Remembering the eye color and shape of the people you meet for a week. Every. Single. One.

    By challenges I mean things that grow me as a person, and has some reason behind it preferably. Just talking to random girls because I can doesn't build me up too much (besides my ego.)

    Done. I saw this guy on campus who was struggling with homework. I spent the next hour helping him out with it and teaching him how to use the software. It turns out he was actually in my class and we just haven't talked or noticed each other yet. I now have a new contact in my phone and another friendly face to see around campus :)

    As for talking to strangers - I do that all the time. That's actually more comfortable for me.

    Eyes. Eye contact, attention to details.
