We were having a farewell party for some kids in my unit whose four years were up and they were leaving. I wanted to chuckle at myself because I actually payed attention to how I acted.
It was quite a large party (there were at least 175 people). I came in and worked my way to the fringes, just watching things. Most of the people I'm familiar with (thus in my "circle") weren't there because they had to work. I was quite tense, even though I knew no one was really paying any attention to me (it's quite easy to blend in like a zebra if you're all wearing fatigues ) so I spotted someone sitting alone and slowly made my way over.
And I think I'm rather wierd that way. I gravitate not towards clumps of people, but the loner lurking in the corner. I sat a few tables over and simply examined her for about ten minutes, ate half a dozen cookies, then finally walked over (four cookies later XD ) and started talking.
I think we both were a little shy, but we hit it off very well. I wound up talking to her almost four hours after the party ended.
So I was curious if I was just wierd, or if anyone else did this.
And, if it helps, I'm female.
