    I Can Be A New Me

    I've felt socially awkward my whole life, but as I've grown up and experimented with alcohol I feel less and less socially retarded. It's more of an anxiety or fear then an unwilling attitude. Being social is part of being human and being able to let go has really taught me to...

    All Set.

    I used to go to lots of parties. House parties. Raves. Hotel parties...I was there. Always there. It's really not my thing anymore. Actually, now I can't stand it. Lol, funny how things change as we get older. I was 15 at the time...and I'm done with the party scene at 25? Guess...

    No Big

    I don't party, I don't go out. I can though. I'm not just a sit at home person, day in day out. Sometimes when my friends invite me, I go to hang out at someone's apartment, few drinkgs, talking, laughing. As far as clubs, I've gone once to Pleasure Island in Disney, which was OK...

    Do Not

    I don't do crowds, noise, drugs or alcohol. So, I don't do parties either.

    No Parties

    I am not a party person. I don't care for going out and partying, it just isn't my style. I don't like going where there are tons of people I don't know, and just the atmosphere of drinking, smoking and cussing like a sailor around me. To me, that just isn't "FUN". I...

    Don't Get It

    The only party I would go to would be a small get together at a friends house, where the focus is the people who are there. Big parties are too loud, too obnoxious, too liquored up, too superficial, too ego-oriented and self-conscious, and too overwhelming. Let me sit in a...

    Akward Much?

    I don't drink, and I'm not a drug user. Okay so I've smoked pot, but that's not a big deal, it was medical. I don't like crowds, nor do I like loud music, so I guess I just wouldn't fit in at a party. I've always felt awkward, even going to a birthday party.

    I can't think of worst waste of time than parties. That's why avoid them as much as I can, no matter what kind of party it is. Lately I've been quite successful dodging every party in sight and I'm going to keep on doing that until the message gets through and I'm not invited...

    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.

    I've Never Been a Big Party Person

    Most of it is because I actually don't like liquor of any kind. The second is that when you're the only one (or feel like the only one) who doesn't drink or do drugs, then the stupidness of people around you is just irritating! I hate people who can't control themselves when...

    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...

    I can do the bar thing every once in a while. I like to have a buzz occasionally. But as far as partying, not so much. I don't get the allure of getting all dolled up to go to someone's house to get trashed and gossip. That's the only kind of party I've ever been to. I like small...
