There are many purposes to having a party or attending a party. There are birthday parties, anniversary parties, weddings, promotions, themed events for certain holidays and party occasions for releases of books, movies, and musical albums. The one thing every party has in common, though, is that they are meant to provide the guests and host or hostess with an amusing, fun time.
However, it isn't as easy as it sounds. There can be a lot of reasons why we don't initially have fun at a party. We may not know everybody present, which makes us feel uncomfortable and sometimes be a little shy. Perhaps we don't feel up to partying, so to speak, or we don't like the food or drinks that are being served. Maybe you just don't like the atmosphere?. Regardless of the reason, there are a few ways to turn yourself around so you do enjoy the party.
Start by reminding yourself of the reason for the party, and that is to have fun. Be outgoing and friendly, introduce yourself to people you don't know, and to those you do know, spend a little time getting reacquainted. You are bound to feel more comfortable when the ice is broken, and that will ensure you to have a better time.
A nice way to break the ice is to, if there are drinks or other food being served, offer the host or hostess help in serving the guests. This way you will be able to network with more people and the food and drink gives you something to talk about. After that, finding some common ground or interests should not be difficult. If you still find yourself somewhat shy, stick to topics that you are comfortable talking about, like your job, family, spouse or significant other. Try some Ice Breaker Party game ideas but if all else fails and you are still having no fun at all, leave or get ratted. The choice is yours!
