There are many people who don’t like to attend parties. Some are introverts, others are anti-social and yet some of us are merely shy and hence don’t buy the idea of social gatherings. Shy people don’t necessarily detest parties, but just lack the confidence in their social interaction skills.
So what kind of thoughts do shy people deal with, when left alone at a party?
Let’s go through a funny few, one by one:
And all you think of is of getting a dagger, which you might just poke your friend with as soon as they arrive.
And you think, “If they can do it, so can I.” And then you think, “No, leave it, not my cup of tea.”
“Oh God! I can’t move. What is wrong with me?”
Plan cancelled. Aah, relieved!
Truth is, it’s all bullshit, and maybe the bathroom will be a better place to get some space.
Do something, look busy. Do anything, I say.
“She should have been here by now. She better have a good reason!”
“Oh, wow, I have got pretty hands. Am I going mad?”
You even think about sharing your company with the dog.
“No, just don’t, please. No…I said STOP.”
“I think I am going to have a stroke.”
You poor thing! Just be yourself and go with the flow.
