Are you meeting as many different people as possible at different events and collecting the maximum number of business cards? Are you playing the networking numbers game? I believe that this is like being on a carousel, just keep going round and around and getting nowhere, starting from scratch every time you network.
Why do so many feel uncomfortable when networking? Treat networking like a game and remember you, too, have something to offer. The definition of networking is “connecting to build two-way relationships for the long term.”
