    say you only talk to this person online a few times and you have them on facebook etc.

    then they ask you to go to their birthday party

    would you go?

    i dont want to and i dont know how to say "no i dont want to go" without them thinking im unsocial/scared... (i might be slightly)

    but i would feel awkward not knowing anyone there and having never met them is very awkward for me

    If you really don't want to go, make up a family/work excuse, but if you actually to do want to but are just nervous to go having never met anyone (I know I would be!) then maybe ask them if you could take a friend or two with you? They probably won't say no and then you'll have people to talk to!

    Depends where it is.. If its clubbing or going out then you can easily bail if things don't go to play.

    yeah friend of a friend but the mutual friend isn't really their friend... if that makes sense!!

    i was thinking, ah i can just say i have something, but i've been asked well in advanced or something, plus they know me quite well now and would know if im just saying an excuse because i dont wanna go

    how would this sound
    "to be honest im quite shy and it would be awkward seeing as i havent met you before and i wont know anyone there!"

    i am probably going to meet this person at uni and that is perfectly fine i'd rather we meet like that than at a place where everyone knows them and i dont and i cant sit and just talk to them only!

    It is normal for people to go to a big 18th even if they aren't close to the host. Bring a friend or something if you want.

    I went to one like that once at a club. It was pretty rubbish so I just went to another party instead!

    Just don't go.

    If you do, take a friend there secretly...boost your confidence.

    Probably not a good idea to turn up drunk to a party where you know no one, this would only increase the chances of her having regretful sex as she won't have a friend to be be like "oh no you don't"

    However, decreases the chances of having regretful sex with someone they're going to see again.
    Or having to remember what happened.
