Belong is the brand Telstra uses as a no-frills broadband provider — think of it as the month-by-month Jetstar to Telstra’s contract Qantas. The original plans Belong offered were thoroughly underwhelming. Now it has increased its data allowances, but there are still better value plans out there.
I once showed up to a party alone, before any of my friends arrived. Instead of mingling, I hid in the bathroom to kill time and avoid talking to strangers. Embarrassing but true.

You don’t need “lines” and “rules” to strike up a conversation with someone — just a great way to help them open up and start talking.
