Being sociable and wanting to network would mean you’re an open person. And sometimes people can take your advantage of this quality.
Watch out for parasites – people who’ll pump you for favors and never try to help you in return. When you find one attached to you (and if you’re generous, you will) turn them down as politely as you can: “No, I’m sorry, I can’t do that tomorrow. I’ve got plans.” If they try to make you feel guilty, feign an excuse to get out of the conversation and make yourself scarce to them. Don’t lose your temper or act cold because that’ll give them something negative to say about you when they’re talking to others – don’t let this happen to you.
