i was at a party for Halloween, and the smell of beer and other alcohols made me feeling sick. i usually try not to go unless there is someone i know there, to ease the experience. otherwise, if left unattended, i get lonely and start to undress the women in my mind from the corner of the room.
I used to party a lot but haven't in years because of anxiety. After all the people that i know who are alcoholics i don't enjoy being around drunk people anymore so even if the SA went away I probably wouldn't go.
Small gettogethers of just 4-5 friends are fun, but big parties just aren't.
Absolutely hate them ^^;
While just sitting at home can be lonely, never are you confronted more with your loneliness and other people's happiness and the ease with which others socialise than at a party.
And drinking only makes those feelings so much worse.
I'm drawn towards dark corners at parties, even at family get togethers i'm desperately looking for something to distract myself with, whether I be playing the games on my phone for hours on end or staring at the blades of grass in the garden. Last family party, my brother and I left the building and just walked around talking about anything and everything.
The party before that I practically become catatonic, just sat there in a corner, still, totally unresponsive to people, scared the c**p out of my mum. Hadn't experianced anything like it before in my life and wouldn't like to again.
It depends on the party SOOOO MUCH! What style does it have? What types of people are there? Are they the ones that like to drink a lot of alcohol or just some fruit juice and berry smoothies? Are they loud people or do they like the occasion to be civilized and more or less organized? Is the party about snacking, drinking and talking or will there be other activities?
Unfortunately, as much as I know about parties, they usually involve eating Springles, drinking soda/alcohol, messing up the place and making a lot of noise. No thank to that.
