    This probably sounds pretty weird but oh well..

    My girlfriend is quite popular compared to me. We are both 16 and she gets invited to parties quite a lot now...

    I have social anxiety and I honestly don't really enjoy parties at all.. especially since they are normally loads of 'popular' people who I don't really know or anything :/

    I have been with her to some of these parties before to make her happy..

    do you think it is selfish to not go?
    or do you think I shouldn't go if I really don't want to?

    She can't MAKE you go to anything. It's your choice whether you want to go to a party or not. :lolwut: Stand up for yourself, if you don't want to go don't.

    Reminds me of my last relationship I'm extremely extroverted and my ex was very introverted, but she didn't have social anxiety.
    It is not selfish for you not to go, but you need to tell her your issues, at the end of the day she enjoys these things and will go regardless. You not always turning up isn't a bad thing, just explain how you feel about them.

    I agree with the other post - apparently alcohol helps.
