The Scenario: You get invited to a party. The only person you know is also the host, who will undoubtedly be busy with a million different things.
You’re nervous because you don’t know anyone there but you’re excited because as a gentleman you’re aware of the opportunities this can present, and as a suspenderman you never ignore a chance to test your skills as a gentleman.
You ring the doorbell, enter the room, look over at the groups of unknown strangers standing with their drinks and talking.
What do you do?
It’s never really said out loud how uncomfortable parties can be if you don’t know any one. And even if you do, you certainly don’t want to latch on to one or two people the entire time you’re there.
It can be uncomfortable, sometimes downright unpleasant if you deem yourself the sort to sip on the same glass of beer all night and people watch.
With that said, there is a way to overcome the oppression of the I-have-no-idea-who-any-of-these-people-are-kill-me-now party.
