Don't you afraid to go to party with a crowd of people you are unkown of? You might end up just yourself sitting or roaming around the party with no one to talk to. Sounds awkward if you imagine it. Next week, my friend invited me to his sister's engagement party. I betcha there are gonna be a bunch of people I won't be familiar with. I don't know whether I should go or not.

We'll unless I have at least one friend, it would be okay with me. I mean I'm better off on my own too, and you can make friends in the party too. But it also depends on what kind of party, and what type of people who attends. I guess if you're with people who shares same insights as you, you'd totally be doing alright. I would enjoy munching on the desserts too, so I don't really mind! %^^

hey!if you are an American,why not? i am impressived with Americans'willingness to go to parties,aren't they? as i know from the movies that American people hold up parties almost every day and they are gonna to present at each parties becuase they like parties very much and consider parties are the most exciting things in the world. but if you are a chinese and you yourself are not puppy,then i can imagine you don't really like stay in a unfaliliar crowd and act like a freak,nor will you hang out with strangers in a generals way. china's traditional culture makes traditional people,they will care who to be going with. that's what i think...

Oh yes I don't want to go to a party with people am not familiar with. I have an inferiority complex on the first place and how will I enjoy if I don't know anybody there. In your case however, I think it's alright for you to go as you were invited by your friend. It's all up to her how to make you feel comfortable. She could introduce you to her family and friends. Am sure you would not be out of place.

Come on, you're gonna get to know more people and maybe make several new friends. It's a great opportunity to enlarge your social circle. I used to feel uncomfortable with a party or activity with strangers, but now I think strangers are better than those you know but you don't know what to talk about with, those you can't get to know more. Also, it's your sister's engagement party, being friendly to her friends will make her happy, very happy!

Hi, clorissa123! It is nice to meet new people to expand your new horizons. But, it is also wise to be careful when being left alone with strangers and acquaintances. Don't go anywhere alone with them. And don't give out too much of your personal business. Be careful of the food that you eat and what you drink. Keep your eyes and ears open at all times. Try not to wander off so far. Go with someone that you trust. Just be careful.

hey if you are really close to your friend and if you feel that your friend is important to you then go and just meet him, talk to him for about few minitues and then come back you dont have to stay there for hours together or till the time party is over,just give some reason and come back from there.this way you wont feel awkward or uncomfortable even your friend will also be happy to see you.

I know how you feel. It was my niece's 18th a while back. I wanted to go because it was for my niece. But the thing was, it was the place where it was held. It was at a house which belonged to my sister's brother in law and wife. I didn't know them all that well. They don't evern really speak to me. I felt uncomfortable knowing it was at their place. I felt like an intruder. I ended up no going and had dinner with my niece on her 18th birthday.

I won't go to party with people I am not unfamiliar with.That doesn't means I must know all the people who attend the party. I mean at least there must be one or two people are very close to me, so that I won't be end up with sitting at a corner and having nothing to do.But there are some people who are skilled in making new friends. So if you are not such a shy man who cannot talk with strangers, I think you can attend the party. At least, you are familiar with your friend, I think he will not let you go into a boring situation in his sister's engagement party.
