You seem a bit too reserved for Oktoberfest. Loosen up a bit! Be carefree and break out of your comfort zone. Life is too beautiful to drive around with the hand brake on all the time.
You’re a sociable person, but sometimes a bit too opportunistic. When choosing your beer tent, you should probably pick a traditional one. After you’ve had a stein or two, you can move to a wilder tent. But keep yourself a bit reserved and observe the colourful activity. Keep your life story to yourself (no d&ms!). Have fun!
You’re definitely on the right track. All you need is two or three tent visits and it’ll be perfect.
