Okay, in a few days i have an upcoming event. It’s being held by a school. I’m invited by a guy friend. So the only person i know there is him. I want to meet new people and all, but how is that possible if people there already know each other. I’m like the newbie and i don’t want to feel left out. Everyone will be socialising around their group of friends and i know they won’t want new people in… and the biggest problem is i dont know what to say when someone approaches me. How do you carry a conversation when you don’t have any mutual friends with them? i’m so jealous of all the people that can just talk about anything but i just don’t know. Anyone help? TL;DR going to event where everyone knows everyone apart from me and want to not feel left out. Thanks
You see, the funny thing is when I was at school all the of the new people which joined my school became a part of the popular. That's because when you spend so much time with people from your own schools, you know most things about them, they aren't as interesting as the new mysterious person.Remember to smile, look happy, try not to be nervous. Think about enjoying yourself and the possible people you will meet. I think it will all go well, to be honest, just try and not worry too much, because that's when other people will tell. If you act confident on the outside (even though you might not feel it on the inside), you might be able to slowly convince yourself you are actually comfortable, then making the actual situation a lot easier.And remember to laugh! Show that you're a happy, confident person who's not afraid of meeting new people, then they will totally buy it, you'll feel loads better about yourself and the situation would go so much better.
Just ask them what kinds of things they are into! Share your interests! Talk about music, TV series/Movie, games, youtube videos, etc! tons of things pretty much whatever, just introduce yourself, make a effort to try and start some sort of conversation. If someone ignores you or gives you looks, oh well they weren't worth your time anyway, and life goes on and you just have a good time. You are there for your friend. I am sure he will introduce you to plenty of people.
you could always start with walking toward potential people who seems to be alone, then greet him/her, introduce yourself, and say that you're on your own and wanted to make new friends, see whats him/her reaction, if she/he is friendly then keep talking, talk about the event, the food, drinks, classes, (REMEMBER, never gossips) and then latest movies, and so on..
which you luck
