Has anybody ever been in this type of situation more than once? Pretty much you're Person B.

Example:

Person A: Oh my gosh! Hi!

Person B: Hello. How are you?

Person A: Doing great, my good friend.

Person B: That's good. So anyway I-

Person C: I can't believe that you are here. Now, it's a party!

Person A: Holy shit! Hi, what is up?!

Person C: Nothing. Just came to see you.

Person A: *speaking to Person B* Excuse me, I gotta go talk to this cool son of bitch.

Person B: Can we talk more later?

Person A: Maybe. I will see. If not, some other time perhaps.


The situation isn't necessarily like that, but somewhat close to.

My Turn:

I use to deal with these situations in the past numerous times. Most of the time it was more so hello and goodbye then move on to someone better. It use to bother me a lot in the past, but now only tiny bit. I'm still trying to learn not to give a shit.


So, what about you? What do you think?


WARNING: THIS SITUATION IS NOT ABOUT A PARTY, BUT RATHER WHAT HAPPENS IN GENERAL! SORRY FOR NOT EXPLAINING BETTER!

I have been in that situation since fourth grade. I'm not a very outgoing so it happens all the time.

I've been in a similar situation once or twice before; just that it was from people I hadn't spoken to since some crazy party I was at (and was the "life of the party"). They barely knew me and they just thought it would be cool to act as though "things livened up" since I was at the party. This is kind of the "common thing" when it comes to parties. The introductions or quick hellos are superficial because they're there for some other reason than you.

As you get older and find yourself into professional/company parties, the same logic applies. People may know of you, they'll give a quick introduction, and then they'll be on their way. Parties aren't very personable, in my experience. It's great when you go to a handful of friends (together) - but when it's kind of "I'll see you there" routine, it's just going to be a hello and goodbye. It's just the overall social logic behind parties, in general.

Makes sense, but this is just in general not only at parties. Sorry for not explaining better.

This happens to me a lot but most of the time all I'm thinking is good riddance. Even if it's not at a party the people this happens with are usually just talking to me for superficial reasons like there's just no one else to do it with or they are trying to keep up appearances, manners. I have no interest in getting closer to them but talking to them does make me a bit uncomfortable so it's only a good thing they find someone their own kind.

Of course this tends to happen more often in social situations/locations. And to be honest I may have been annoyed temporarily but after a good 30 seconds it's just like "Meh, time to do whatever I was gunna do". The only time it would actually leave a sting or cause me to ruminate about it is if I actually had something important to tell the person. (like asking a girl out, making plans with someone) but that usually can be accomplished if you have their number.

It's not too big of a deal bro don't trip over it.

Yes, it happened to me a lot, some people will return to ask me, "So you were saying?", and then I'll be like, "I don't want to talk to you anymore".
It does not irritate me as much as some random Chinese tourists cutting in on the queue or people talking to babies or animals. I have my own pet peeves, and being ignored is not one of them.

I am always person B. It doesn't bother me all that much anymore though, because I've always been a loner and usually get annoyed when people want to hang out for too long.
