What is the feeling when you enter in a room full of strangers?
You can feel as if you were pushed into an icy swimming pool filled with cold water.
But, once if you are into the pool, you can feel that itâ€™s not that cool after all and you will start enjoying the swim.
Similarly, entering into a room filled with strangers can be a tough task for you initially, but once you mingle with the people, you will start enjoying the party.
Standing at the entrance of the party, you can observe everyone laughing, discussing, drinking and having fun with such a good party time.
If you enter with knocking knees, then obviously you can attain everyoneâ€™s concentration towards yourself, which can be quite disgusting for you.
So, in order to behave well in such strange situations and avoiding such upsetting episodes in your life, here are certain guidelines to follow.
Always remember, a genuine smile, good eye contact and an appropriate handshake becomes your best weapons in such strange situations.
Enter into the room with big, warm and gentle smile!
When you stand at the entrance of the party door, allow your eyes to settle on any empty space among several people standing on the far side of the party room. Now try to give a big warm smile and gently wave your hand, so that no one should notice you.
Donâ€™t be concerned that you are showing joy at barren space of wallpaper. Donâ€™t worry that the person standing right or left of your spotted space will probably notice you. If they really do, then they donâ€™t even bother to look at whom you are smiling.
If you really know someone in the crowd, then there ends the problem. Even if they are facing the opposite direction to you, try to charm their posteriors with same gentle warm smile or greeting.
Try to greet every one in the party!
After entering into the party room, now start your imperial procession with a simple smile, nod and a small confession to every 3rd or 4th person as you pass. Can they identify that you are faking it?
Obviously not, because even the other personâ€™s insecurity will be at high gear and they will consider that you know every body.
Those strange individuals to whom you have smiled can assume that all others were real acquaintances and you must have mistaken them for someone else. They can assume that you are really a famous person.
On the other hand, if luckily you come across any one you really do know, then you can feel much better to start your conversation.
Try to introduce yourself!
Look for someone to introduce yourself in a gracious way. Any other person, who is standing alone in the entire room, can be an excellent person for you to start your conversation. This alone person might have probably noticed you gliding boldly through the entire crowd greeting every one. So, even the other person can feel honored talking to you.
These simple tricks can be helpful for you to avoid any upsetting or embarrassing situations in your life, while partying. So, try to implement them in a gentle and pleasing way.
