Especially at parties. It's not something I like to admit and sadly, the anonymity that the internet offers is the only reason I'm able to disclose it now. I'm horrible at parties and socializing in general. I was always shy and still am, although I've gotten a little better over the years. During highschool I never went to parties and even now in my college years, if friends try to invite me to one, I'll make up some excuse so I don't have to go. I don't know why but when there are a bunch of people around I find it rather difficult to just mingle and start conversations. If you can imagine that one guy at the party that doesn't really know anybody and kind of just floats around, people staring until it's time to go......I'm him. I remember the last party I went to with my cousin, I tried to muster up enough courage to socialize and I did, well for the first hour or so of the party anyway and then everybody that I was talking to kind of just splintered away into their own little group of friends, and me not just wanting to tag along, kind of just stood around looking stupid the rest of the time. Embarassing.... I guess I'm just venting but I have to learn to talk to people better you know?
