I have nothing much to add to the good advice already given.

Parties are always hard unless you have friends around to hang with or alcohol to make you forget your awkwardness and as Sixshot advised always in moderation... well... relative moderation...don't want to hurl on the girl. Since you don't normally drink -Predaking-, I wouldn't want this incident to encourage you down a road to lushdom...

Women can be cruel... and these supposedly "gorgeous" girls were not worth your time. It's always easy to say, but don't get discouraged. My bet is that somewhere in that party there was a girl who felt just as uncomfortable as you did. The key is finding that girl...

If it'll help any, I will say this: You went to this party ALONE and stuck it out. That in itself takes balls....


BTW... Best vodka hands down is Grey Goose.

Mmm.. I didn't think about this before. I did stuck around for 3 hours even though it's obvious from the beginning that I gonna have a rough time with girls. Thanks for boosting my morale.

Grey Goose is French, and therefor it cannot be the best.

Predaking, I've been looking at this thread for a few days now, and I still am not quite sure what to say. I've been there; I've done that. ****, I'm the freaking poster. Right now, I am lucky enough to be dating a wonderful, beautiful woman. I know this probably doesn't really help things out, but they WILL improve. Drinking is rarely the answer. However, Robert A. Heinlein did write in one of his many science fiction books: "Bravery is rarely found in the bottom of a whiskey bottle, but it couldn't hurt to look."

Ahh, Vodka straight; the alcoholic's drink. Wait, that's my drink of choice!

OK, maybe I'm speaking out of turn or have missed something here, but there's one thing I don't think has been touched on. You keep talking about how you can't talk to girls. If you go out looking for girls and trying to talk to "girls" you'll get nervous and come across as lackig in confidence and desperate. If you just look at everyone at the party as people and just relax and chat, you're much more likely to make new friends and maybe even meet someone you have a bit of chemistry with.

Or when I talked to them they don't reply with their name then just made excuse to move away. But all around me there are guys chatting away and having laughs with girls so I don't know how they do it (or why I can't do it). I was basically by myself most of the time and that really bites.
This is why I spend the vast majority of my time at home. I used to go to social events and see all these people I didn't know all over the place and I would just panic. I don't like being around that many people in a small location, even if its a group of my friends. Now that I spend so much time at home, I imagine I'll soon be a hermit living in some forest miles away from the closest person.

Uh nmatthew...have you even tried Grey Goose? Yes it's French but it's the smoothest vodka I've ever had! No bad aftertaste. No harsh fumes. Goes down easy when shooting. And I've had Stoli Gold, Absolut, Ketel One, Belvedere, Skyy, Smirnoff (yuk) among others...

For the price, Belvedere is horrid. All you get is a pretty bottle.


Sorry -Predaking-.... Don't mean to digress.

All right, now that I've recovered from the weekend, I think I should be able to see things more clearly. I was just depressed that this girl that I like more than any other was all over this guy, who I know has no interest in her, but it still hurt. Today, I realized that there are some other girls that I could be happy with. Beautiful, warm girls, who I could really get close to.

Smirnoff rules. It's. The. Best. Drink. Ever. With Absolut coming a close second, every other Vodka I'v tried just doesn't compare and this is coming from a 16 year old.

King, all I can to the discussion from my own experiances is:

Do not go to parties/socials alone as it doesn't really help when trying to socialise, it's always better having someone you know to talk to when the party/social seems like it sucks. If girls are avoiding you, they don't deserve your time. And I know you don't drink but it really does help at these type of events, like Fokker said:

Lots of alcohol + Lock = very nice guy

It's easier to mingle and you just lose yourself in the moment and it usually ends up going well.

Man, I don't know If I'd be able to handle that situation. I'd probably run screaming out of that place and hole myself up at home for a few days. That's how bad I am.

Glad you found other girls to get close to. Lakewood, the city I live in, is notorious through northern Ohio for its large collection of beautiful yet amazingly unitelligent and shallow girls. They're fun to look at, but there's not much here as far as companionship goes.

You might as well describe Los Angeles. It's the same thing here.
