Make rules like you want, but don't think about enforcing that one.
Having to ignore that rule it will people like myself feel comfortable

I _do_ have days where I want to be in my comfort zone. Meeting new
people keeps me on the edge, which is certainly well outside my comfort

uncomfortable or guilty for staying in my personal comfort zone, and
I'll stop attending.
