You have asked "How am I going to act?"..... My advice is to place the emphasis on the word ACT here cristis! These people have never, ever met you before, so they don't know you're shy! You can reinvent yourself to be the person you have always wished to be when it comes to a social gathering and they will never know the difference. The only way to break habits and self beliefs like this is to step out of our comfort zones and what better way to test the water's than in a situation where nobody knows you well at all. Good luck with the trip!

All confidence is faked anyway! I think the reason for people being shy is mainly because you're too worried about what people will think of you. You shouldn't! You should just relax, be yourself and don't worry about anything. Just be yourself, act polite and take part in conversation. People will show you more respect and treat you better if you seem confident and comfortable in yourself.

Shy, huh? Just by looking at your profile pic, I wouldn'tve guessed:) Well, just relax n be yourself! I was shy, then realized a person is a person! Shyness is a form of insecurity, worried what other people will think of you! If they don't like you, to hell with them, they don't have any impact on your life than if you never met them! So what's to worry about, you're you, and that's all you can be; so open up! Taripre$

Me as a child, I was always shy, even shy of relatives. The only people I wasn't shy with were my friends and teachers. I guess you need to start talking to them just a little bit, like start answering them all the question they ask you in more detail other than yes and no. I guess as you grow older your body will get over it.
