So, you’ve never been to a house party before. The first thing you need to do is not be shy. Before you step into the room, scan the room for friends. Then, introduce yourself to them. Be yourself, and don’t interrupt people. House parties are social events and you should make the most of them! If you feel shy, you can always try to initiate a game. Otherwise, don’t feel embarrassed if you don’t know how to start.
The size of the party matters. Many movies and television shows show crowded party places, but in real life, you’ll find a much more intimate atmosphere with only 10 to 20 people. If you have a small apartment, you can easily hold a conversation with just a few people and have a great time. If you’ve never been to a house party before, it might not seem as intimidating as it seems.
You can arrive early and enjoy the party. You might be the first guest, and you’ll be relieved to see your friends. Also, it will give the impression that everyone is a popular guest. On the other hand, if you arrive late and find yourself having to wait for a long time to get in, you’ll be cursing the host and the invitation. It’s okay for your guests to arrive up to 1.5 hours early if they’re running late for a cab.
