    Tango?

    If you're a man dancing at a party, you're attracting a lot of women. [happy buzzing sounds.] Unless you're doing the Funky Chicken.

    I'm two steps through the door and I immediately start making the rounds, making sure to say hello to everyone and pass greetings before I settle into a conversation on the sidelines. I don't drink or eat at parties, so all of my time is spent talking or joking around (or running around a kitchen island being chased by Canadians.)

    I usually have my INTJ best friend as my wingman.

    If I didn't know anyone at the party..gulp..I'd be really nervous and would be trying to figure out where to go, who to try to meet, and how to work my way into a conversation. I'd be really self-conscious the whole time, feeling like I stuck out because I was by myself and didn't know anyone. Even if I managed to mingle my way into a group, I'd be quiet most of the time. If I went with someone I knew, I'd pretty much stay with them - but then if they knew a bunch of people, I'd feel bad that I was being so clingy, and so then I'd probably try to make some effort chit-chatting with other people.

    My savior would be some sort of activity - playing cards or darts, or a board game (as long as it's NOT charades or anything where I have to get up in front of people and sing/act! eek!!). I'd dive into that and be much more comfortable. And once I was doing that I'd have an easier time mellowing out and then chit-chatting with the other players.

    [although if we're talking college-type parties, then I was inclined to just drown my uncomfortableness by getting drunk and dancing]

    walk in- find the bar- grab a strong drink and start chatting everyone up- especially the quiet people who don't look like they're having fun- continue hitting the bar- step outside for a smoke break and chat with the others out there- hit the bar again- dance with someone (gender doesn't matter)- play beer pong for a bit- dance back over to the bar- make rounds chatting with everyone again

    repeat this set of actions until the party dies down- leave with the last few partiers to a bar- stay there until it closes talking about the evils of the world and what's wrong with our country- leave and find food- call a cab and find someone to share it with- go home and walk the dog and then crash

    yep- that's about what you could expect from me at a party!

    oh yeah- I forgot- interspersed in there occasional loud singing (badly)

    I'm drinking, and trying to muster up some balls to speak to that pretty lady by the bar.

    This interests me. What's the attraction of chatting them up? I do it myself in a hostess capacity but otherwise I wouldn't go by that criterion when zeroing in on conversation targets at a party. What's in it for you?

    Edit: Oh, and I do this:
