    Whilst I'm a social person, I enjoy meeting new people, spending time with them, and spending time with my established friends and family, but social butterfly I am not.... parties are not my things, they bring me out in cold sweats; and whilst i will go, especially if its...

    Prefrences:

    I do like parties once in a while but I prefer warm evening conversations with close group of friends. Usually, we meet up at one friends place, go out for a walk or play some sport once in 2 weeks. One good thing about parties is you can catch-up with old friends.

    What do you tell people

    when they insist on you going to a club or party or they insist on you having a drink (alcoholic beverages)? Trying to find ways to let people know that I'm not the party type without being too off putting.

    And I Thought I'd Like It More Than I Did.

    I went to my first party Friday night. Granted, I had no idea it was going to be a party at the time I was invited. My friend and her sister sit with me at lunch and they were talking about having a 'get together' at their house and having a cookout. They invited me so I said...

    Never Liked Partying.

    I've been a loner for most of my life due to numerous reasons. So I'm the most comfortable when I'm by myself or around few others that I know well and trust. I'm also easily annoyed by people, especially if they're drunk or under influence of drugs. So party is the last place I...

    My Office Party Sucks!

    I don’t like my office parties. I like it when someone sits with me and talk to me for the whole party but it’s not possible in our parties. We keep moving here and there and keep changing our partners; that’s why I hate it. (But I like this same thing when it comes to the...

    I hate parties. People get drunk, high, and have sex. Also weirdos go and spike girls' drinks and rape them. Also people get crazy and the cops come and some innocent people go to jail. The only party I'd go is for LGBT stuff, where it's really just a gathering and there's snacks...
