LoL, you as well eh? I been here for less then 2 weeks now, and the "level of micro-moderation" going on...

We can even have threads about "Hitler had some good ideas..." over on the GD few days back, but yet apparently everything I do is /blasphemy of course. NHK Conspiracy I tell you. Or, of course, the orders of Fearless Leader.


.....It even puts the Mr. Spaceman (over at FUNimation) to shame. Well, almost...


But I digress.....

IDK, I can hardly call myself on expert here on such matters. And, I didn't intentionally intend to be here very long, either. More of an "exchange" travel at the moment. Must say, I like the voracity of discussion here, at least. But of course, only time shall tell...

Parties can be fine. Make sure you're up for it in the first place. I've found that if you plan ahead with a good prep time beforehand then have a few hours partying (know your limit and stick to it), after that say farewell and go home for some cooling down time. If you go with a group make sure they know that you'll be leaving when you're ready and not according to someone else's schedule. Oh and make sure you've planned some good transportation to make your great exit.

Oh in the party you could just nurse one drink (this doesn't have to be alcohol), soak in the atmosphere, maybe chat to a person or three, people watch, dance or subtly move to the music beat, nibble some food if available, admire other party goers attire or be shocked at what they wore.

Not well, I usually just hang around, not really talking to anyone before getting bored and going home.

The thing about people and parties, is that people in general are quite awkward in daily situations, society have become like this itself. We just assume that everyone else is so social and comfortable in all social situations. Parties themselves are quite awkward places IMO, since there's nothing "concrete" to do except mingling. Take this from someone who talks way too much in most cases, so it's not that i'm "awkward" as a person. I'm actually quite the opposite, almost bothering people because I want to talk all the time, so it's not like i'm subjective with this opinion.

Though I have to say that I find it fascinating that, even when people generally are so quiet och unsociable, when it comes to parties they are the opposite. Even the shy/quiet people seems to be comfortable in party environments. I wonder if this just how it looks like on the surface.

Another key point, it's not always you that's the problem! The person you are talking to could be the one who makes the conversation hard as well. If someone never answers what you say, of course they make it hard for you to keep a conversation. The person you talk to have to try, else it's not going to work.
The problem with this, is that many people (especially introverts) often blame themselves if a conversation doesn't go smoothly. They assume it's because of themselves. But I want to point out that it's not always the case. More often than not, it could simply be the person you're talking to that's the indifferent one, that's their problem not yours.

I don't go to parties, nor do I know people who even have them/would invite me to them. All my friends are just as hermit-ey as I am.

Constantly use outdated phrases and laugh at everything. No one will suspect a thing.
