    All my friends left early. I'm now in a party where I know no one. What the hell do I do? You say "meet people." How the hell am I to do that? I can't just approach some random person and say "hey" for absolutely no reason.

    God help me, I have absolutely no idea how the social thing works. There's no philosophy I can apply to it. It's all a mystery to me, and I'm just about despairing in alcoholic stupor here.

    :( :( :(

    See if there's another loner like you and spark up a conversation with 'em. That way you know you have at least one thing in common.

    edit: That might have come off as rude, but I definitely didn't mean it as such. I apologize if it did.

    So you post on MacRumors? :confused:

    :cool:

    I'd personally just go up and introduce myself to someone - probably the hottest chick in the room. I'd probably then have my girlfriend run in from wherever she'd been hiding all night and she'd probably slap me. :(

    In all seriousness, just introduce yourself. Surely you're not that shy. :)

    *Scopes out girl*
    *approaches*
    "Hello, my name is xxx."

    And if that was me, I'd go "Er, all right, my name's zzz. Nice to meet you." *handshake*...

    ...

    *goes to get more beer*.

    Hell no.

    Just out of curiosity, how is it that your posting on MR?

    But really what you need to do is just go introduce yourself to someone. Find someone you think looks interesting, maybe someone thats not busy talking to someone and yea.

    It seems your really shy. Just get really smashed and you won't be so shy any more.

    I'm not sure about Raven's age, but I think he's only like 13 (forgive me if I'm wrong). That might not be the best idea, especially if his parents are going to end up picking him up.

    Duff-Man says...I second Daveway - just leave if you like. If you do not know anyone and don't really want to be there, chances are no one will notice if you just leave....worked for me at my brothers wedding years ago.....oh yeah!

    Just walk up to a group of people and intoduce yourself without any cliches or bs and if there are any real cool people in the group they will say what's up. If not then you probably don't want to get to know any of them anyway, if they are too uptight or weird to be nice back then forget 'em.

    omg, I'm really sorry I had no idea.

    In that case, that is a very bad idea.

    I stand corrected.

    Go ahead and get smashed. You won't be as shy if you do.

    Just do what I did when I was 13, drop acid and try a shroom or two. You do want to be cool and popular, don't you? ;)

    Just kidding. Don't drink or do drugs, just hang out, find someone who looks bored and say to them "damn, I've been to funerals that were more fun than this", and if you don't at least get a chuckle, go home; you're dealing with a bunch of losers who can't throw a party anyways.

    Well, the first thing you're doing wrong is posting on a forum at a party. Why are you even near a computer at a party? Either the party is very lame or you need to take the Frodo costume off. :p
