    There's this party i've been invited to in about a week. But i'm not sure really want to go because i'm not that into partying. However i feel a bit rude about not going even though i'm not really good friends with them plus a lot of people will be going so i won't be noticed if i don't. Also, a really good friend of mine isn't going either.

    sorry about this being a bit mumbo jumbo.

    I have the same problem all the time... See how you feel closer to the day and then decide. Don't feel pressured to go if you don't want to. :P

    Well ultimately it is up to you, on one hand parties are a great place to meet new people you haven't met yet and socialise with others you have, but on the other parties can also be awkward and boring (especially if you're not drinking). I would go but I am kind of into that kind of stuff... but if you don't feel comfortable don't go!

    If you're just nervous, get over it and go, it'll probably be fun. If you think you won't enjoy it, don't go, like you said it's not like you're very close to the person.

    I don't see how this is mumbo jumbo, but weigh out the pros and cons of going

    If you go:
    1) You'll be discontent because you're not into partying
    2) You'll be around people you don't like
    3) You'll be wishing your good friend was there.

    If you don't go:
    1) You may well not be noticed
    2) You think you might come across as rude, but with point 1 considered, you may well not.
    3) Evidently your friend wasn't too concerned about appearing rude.

    I think the result is pretty conclusive.

    Yeah you should- several times I've been in your position, and I have always ended up deciding to go, and most times I've actually ended up enjoying myself

    See how you feel about going on the day and if you feel like you really don't want to go, then don't. Or, just go along and you'll most likely end up having fun; if not, then just leave early.
