parties

this is going to sound odd, but do you like parties? I've gone over it in my head and come to the conclusion that I do not, but am not sure if this is just me being odd (probably) or if parties are a shared delusion. strangers, loud music that can't be controlled, bad food, awkward mingling, or sitting in the back feeling upset and judgmental for being too anti-social, there doesn't seem to be much going for them.

That's my opinion, what's the argument in favor of them? or is this just something we've convinced ourselves is good, when really NO ONE likes them?

I think it just depends on how big the party is, how well I know the people, whether I like the people, what kind of mood I'm in, etc... If a person likes parties depends slightly on their personality I think.

I like smaller parties - the ones where it's pretty much a group of friends hanging out and doing stuff they all enjoy, rather than a big bunch of people who may or may not know each other.

I can't say I like big parties at all. I hate crowds and loud noises, and I suffer from a certain degree of social anxiety, so big parties are one of the worst places for me to be.

(Also, YAY Pinkie Pie!)

I like private parties..hehe..but I'm really kind of an introvert, and don't enjoy large gatherings and crowds.

Also an introvert - I like small gatherings instead of big faceless ones. I can focus better when the energy isn't chaotic and draining me.

I remember reading 'The Great Gatsby' and one of the characters commenting "I love huge parties. They're so intimate." And she did have a point, since everyone usually breaks up into groups - you have the dancers, the talkers, the show offs, the sporty types ... and it just gets to a point in which you can sit down with one person and nobody will interrupt because they're absorbed with their own activity at the party. The smaller parties not so much, since everyone is usually focused on one or two activities and everyone is aware of each other's presence.

I used to be really opposed to parties, because I was so introverted and a bit of a misanthropist. I started giving them a try after high school, and as long as they were with friends and in a safe location, I started to like going out a lot more. You just have to get out of your own head sometimes because we tend to convince ourselves of things so very easily that aren't necessarily true (or whether or not we actually like something).

My "Parties" usually involve cake, silly string, and chocolate! Occasionally sparkling grape juice for New Years

I personally only like small parties with 10 or so people

I have not been to such parties, because parties here is somehow different. We have a fatty dinner, TV or movie, bottled juice or soft drinks, chatting, playing cards aor other games,.. I like it because I meet my old friends.

In our minds, there's a difference between a big party and a "get together" with friends. The latter is what we prefer, because people will bring GOOD food, GOOD conversation, and everyone will have a GOOD time!

I don't like parties where I don't know anyone. A gathering of friends is always nice though.

It depends, i like small gatherings of friends, but raves and concerts can be extremely fun, too.

I love partys! I am throwing one tonight in fact ; ) The only thing I hate about parties is the cleanup!

Parties are really good! But only when I'm in the right mood. And clean-up always sucks.

Sometimes I guess. But most times no. Also depends on who's party and what age group, and what the party is for. Most times it's just people stumbling around getting drunk :/ meh i'd rather not.

Parties that I "must" attend (work, social circles) can suck. Parties I WANT to go to (with good friends and their other friends who I can meet?) Heck yes...almost always fun. Humans are usually social creatures.

I'm not into the "party" sort of parties, but, I'm not opposed to all social gatherings automatically including those that involve drinking and music. I just don't like when a lot of people are present.

I'm kinda weird about them too. I LOVE our parties. We have a lot of parties at our house, but it's mostly family and close friends and not the whole drinking/drugging scene. Lol. I'm past those days, but we usually do fireworks, cooking, games, etc. It's family friendly fun and that's my kind of thing I guess. Sometimes there's light drinking, but since we usually have kids around, there's rarely any at all. Other parties like the drinking crazy ones from my high school days are not my thing at all!

I think each party I've been to is rather different, some I've enjoyed and some I wanted to get out as soon as I got in.

If I know the majority of the people yes, if it's mostly strangers then I just feel awkward

I think it comes down to what kind of party and who is going to be there.
