Yep, I surely would feel a tang of embarrassment when going to a party not knowing one person. But as much as possible I'll try to socialize and befriend someone who wants to be befriended.

Yes, i would feel embarrassed too if i go to party and will feel do not comfortable to sit there. Talking to a strange is a good idea if you know to to talk and easy-going. But i am a shy and untalkative person, so it is hard for me to make friend easily.

Hi earl: For me this is simply a difficult situation. I don't like parties because I simply don't know what to do and how to interact with other people and the fact of not knowing anyone makes things even more difficult. In my case I wouldn't talk to a stranger... I just eat and maybe if someone talk to me I'll start a conversation. It's a little bit uncomfortable to me to be in a situation like that. I have lived these experience lots of times . ALVARO

That's understandable. I get really uncomfortable when I go to a party or gathering where I don't know anyone. It feels really strange and I often freeze up. I'm not that sociable to begin with so being in this kind of situation is not ideal for me. It doesn't help that I'm kind of shy in unfamiliar company so I don't think I'd be able to do what you did and start up a conversation with a stranger. I don't know, I usually end up making a quick exit in these types of situation.

hi earl if its a large group and I do not know anyone there I tend to'sor of freeze up and leave early. but if someone, almost anyone tries to put me at ease I find I can really enjoy the party even if there are a zillion people there as I am not a party animal at all. but once I begin to know someone I can make friends pretty easily. lol lol lol.

Yes. I don't like going anywhere without a close friend around. I actually have a reunion to attend to but I'm hesitant about going because my close friends aren't sure if they're going.

It depends on how I feel. Sometimes I get really shy and don't talk to anyone, but if I'm hyper I will talk to everyone and love it. I think my personality is kind of oxy-moronish at times. I'm both an extrovert and an introvert. I'm going back to school soon and have been gone for over a year so I will only know two classes there. I will need to learn a lot of new names and make new friends too. I don't want to just hang out with the same people even though they are cool. I'm just awful at remembering names and faces. I have embarrassed myself in forgetting people and they will instantly recognize me because I'm pretty distinctive. But embarrassment is not my default emotion in a new social situation. It's more likely apprehension or excitement.
