Wow. I'm so glad I'm not the kind of girl that likes to go to parties, but basically that just states that women cannot go to parties and blow off steam in any way that men do (..usually the reason many people actually go to parties) coz if they get taken advantage of, they should've known better. Why bother even going to a party then, seriously.
Time to set up girls-only parties, I suppose, if you really wanna be able to blow off steam.
As for the going up to strangers...I kinda do that with any person I find interesting enough. Just to see what they're like. I have no problem initiating the actual first meet-up and helping the shy guy I find intriguing along. I usually hit them over the head about three times - then I move on, if I don't get a positive response back. It really aint that complicated
Granted, this aint going to be easy for everyone - men or women. It depends on your personality and strengths.
