Lifestyle Participation Activities
Engage in as many public activities as possible.
Get to know the host people that you’ve become acquainted with and look for host people who like to spend a lot of time with you. They might become interviewees in Phase 4.
Enjoy conversations on many topics. Even though they likely won’t be very deep yet, conversation is now possible.
Participating in groups of host people is still probably not fruitful.
By the End of the Phase
real but very limited connection with host people becomes possible
some host people catch glimpses of your personality
deep relationships are still not really possible
This phase can be a lot of fun. Your understanding of simple stories will grow a lot and you’ll start being able to speak more easily. Communication — and therefore building relationships — will still require a lot of effort and patience, but it’s possible. Keep going and challenge yourself especially when you’re in the lead in the Story-Building activities. This phase is also best done intensively (20-25 hours per week with your nurturer).
