I was at a party this past weekend where I knew maybe like a dozen people. However, there was upwards of maybe a couple dozen there in general. So ultimately, most of the festivity goers were unknown to me. One of things that I find so interesting about parties (especially college ones) is how people usually aren’t too friendly or willing to dive outside your social circle. So, with that in mind, I’m here to give you a list of options to make your party going experience more fulfilling (or at least fulfilling to me anyway).
First things first, don’t be afraid to introduce yourself. It can seem overwhelming to walk into a packed apartment where music is blasting and try to meet new people but, in the end, it is better to at least try (even if they ignore you) than to sit it in the same corner all night wondering why no one is talking to you.
Also, you don’t have to drink! No where in the rules of partying does it state you must be under the influence of anything to have a good time. In fact, one way to keep things fun for yourself is to play drinking games (without the drinking!). “Beer Pong” will always be fun to me, doesn’t matter if there’s anything alcoholic in the cup.
Finally, dance! Dancing in fun, and never let yourself feel afraid of looking stupid. So next time you’re at a party, introduce yourself, have fun, relax, and just be yourself. Rarely is it ever like it is in the TV shows.
