    • Today my daughter and I went to my brother’s party. There were alot of people. We chatted for awhile with the people at our table. Later we all got up to mingle and my brother introduced us to his girlfriend and her daughter. Talked for a bit and they left to see someone. My daughter was able to converse with others, but I just sat alone while others were in their groups and having fun. I felt invisible.

    • Im sorry you felt invisible....

      Since I still tend to be on the reserved side I have to put myself out of my box. I have decided that I can either have the time of my life or not. It’s my choice! So if I want to have fun the burden is on me to create it.

      Linda sometimes it’ is hard... Especially when  you‘re your not naturally out there. But you certainly are worthy even when people are not talking to you heart

    • I’m a people person so its easy for me to mingle and make conversation, I find that most of the time, people are drawn to me, I have tried to sit alone at certain functions, but someone always find themselves drawn to me. I’m so sorry you felt that way and I hope it never happens again to you.

    • I’m not a real people person, so sometimes it’s really hard for me to go up and talk to new people at a get together.  Sometimes I ask myself “what would Auntie Marie do?”  My aunt is a big people person and sometimes I just pretend I’m her.

      Saturday night I stayed home from the dance that was only a block away from my house, because I figured I’d end up sitting by myself.  There are just some events where a single woman who is a transplant in the community is going to get ignored.  Saturday night, I knew would be one of those times, so I stayed home.

    • Vikki - Thank you that I’m still worthy even when people ignore me.

      Neicy - I’m envious of people like you.

      Tulip - I wanted to leave, but my daughter and I came together. She’s having fun so I just waited.

    • Thanks Dianne. Sometimes if you talk to someone they either ignore you or move away. I wouldn’t dare join in a group that I don’t belong to, I don’t want a “who’s she?” frown

    • So sorry you feel this way, but you are an important person.  It took me a long time to feel like a part of things, especially with individuals that I did not know well.  I gravitate towards those who have similar interests as me and gradually I feel more comfortable with others.  

      When I have nothing to say or feel a bit uncomfortable, I do a lot of smiling..people love a happy looking person!estatic

    • There’s nothing wrong with a “who’s she?”  Look at it as a positive instead of a negative thing.

      I get that a lot being “new” in town.  People who grew up here will ask that about me or they’ll even point blank ask, “who are you?”  And once they know the answer to that question, they feel they know me and I usually have a new friend.

    • Thank you ladies for your positive feedback and suggestions.
      This year at my workplace instead of our usual long table in the staff room, it’s been separated into 4 smaller tables. Of course, the same grade teachers or friends are all together at their own table some pull chairs from other tables to sit together there. My coworker and I sit at another and sometimes we feel so isolated especially if it’s just one of us alone.

    • I am an introvert who grew up in a very extrovert family. I have learned to excel at meeting people at parties, talking to strangers, looking for common points of interest and focusing the conversation on those points
