    Yeah i can imagine this being a bit awkward, but in reality i don't think so much. Your probably overthinking the situation.
    I'd have been more confident that i really didn't want any more food, but it doesn't help that your mate calling you shy an to have something lol.
    I'm sure your the only one thinking about it, so best not to worry

    you shouldnt have to feel like you have to be constantly outgoing/thelifeandsouloftheparty. just be yourself and don't get so wound up about it... i'd rather have a friend who was themself rather than try and be "it"

    you should have stuck to your guns and not caved in to peer pressure.

    it doesnt seem awkward, i think the girl was just trying to be friendly and start some conversation with you

    Just be yourself dude , if everyone is eating and you dont want to eat ,then dont eat ..If someone asks you why youre not eating , tell them its none of their bussiness..

    One thing thats worked for me , is never to think what youre going to say , just be instinctive .

    Yeah, great advice. Definitely the best way to make friends is to answer "its none of your (****ing) business (you disgusting whore)" when they try to be friendly. :rolleyes:

    I do that sort of thing all the time and don't consider it particularly awkward. Awkward is me saying in front of my biology teacher how I'd hate to be a teacher, or her showing the class a picture of her little daughter and me saying 'It's a nicely lit photo'. The worst thing is it usually takes me about 5 minutes to realise what I said wrong, by which time it's too late. The latter actually took me about 3 days.

    What's wrong with saying it's a nicely lit photo? Also what's wrong with saying you'd hate to be a teacher?

    I absolutely detest people who point out people for being shy.

    all i meant is he should stick up for himself rather than being the "nice guy " and trying to make friends with everyone .

    What's wrong with being friendly towards someone who is clearly trying to help him out by making small talk? You're hardly going to make friends by acting like some mentalist psychopath at a social gathering.


    "Hi, welcome to the party. Can I get you a drink?"

    "Do I look like I want a ****ing drink you prick? Why don't you go **** off before I stab you in the face?"

    Is that your approach? Does it work well?

    well read the op , and you will notice conversation didnt go anything like that ..after saying no once ,the host kept on insisting him to have something , and his friend commenting his shy. There are lots of socially acceptable things he could have said , without him looking like a ****.

    So they could see he was shy and feeling awkward, assumed that he was turning down the food out of politeness, and tried to help him/involve him in the conversation/ get him to loosen up a bit by trying to get him to relax and eat something... all the signs of a polite and thoughtful host. She sounds like a nice girl... and your reaction to this unprecedented level of kindness and consideration would be to tell her to "mind her own business". Seriously?

    Really the OP should have eaten something, or at very least should have ****ing loosened up and made a joke out of it, not just smiled at her like he was thinking how nice her head would look in his freezer.
