    so this weekend is my friends baby shower and i don't know what to do. i'm a very anxious person and won't know a single person there except her boyfriend. i haven't seen her in over 6 months so we're not very close anymore but i think she expects me to go. it's in a pub and i'm just not sure what to do as it's hard for me to push myself to do social things like this. right now i really don't want to go but i feel bad. there's over 60 people going and i don't know anyone so i know i'll just be stood on my own the whole time. she's also said it's basically going to be a massive piss up (not for her obviously) but all her friends are very much big drinkers and i'm not which again makes me feel like i'll be out of place :/ should i just not go?

    Given that she is pregnant and probably feeling a bit hormonal- if you want to stay friends with this person then you should go.

    Usually they have ice breaker activities, some food and a sit down and a chat.

    It's about her- not you. So even if you're feeling awkward just pull yourself together and do it for your friend.

    If she's your friend, she should know what you're like and shouldn't force you to go. There's nothing wrong with your friend having a big party with everyone else and then a couple of days later have a small get together consisting of you, her and the baby.

    This person is your friend? Are you sure?
