Many people meet Baha'is and learn about the Baha'i Faith by attending a meeting. This meeting may be a Fireside, Devotional or Ruhi Book Group. By following these steps, you will be relaxed about learning something new and need not worry about offending anyone at the meeting.
WikiHow is, of course, wiki-written. Below are two of my favorites from the lists of Steps and Tips. -gw

STEPS - 2. Wear modest clothing. Baha'is are very conscious of dressing to fit the culture of where they live, so wearing jeans in Texas is fine, and there are no rules for what kinds of clothes men or women should or should not wear. Baha'is believe in modesty in all things, including dress.

TIPS - Baha'is are not liberal or conservative, democrats or republicans, they are Baha'i.'i-Meeting
