My friends are all planning to go out clubbing for New Years eve. Most people would jump at the chance, but there are a few things making me reconsider.
- I'm a classic textbook introvert. A night of drinking and forced social interaction will really really drain me. Of course, this will lead to me sitting in a corner trying to be alone and people coming up to me and asking "Joey, what's wrong?" when there really isn't anything wrong, I just want to be alone.
- There are four people there who I would rather not be around. My ex best friend and his girlfriend, who have constantly tried to cause drama with me since they got together, another ex friend who royally fucked me over by getting with my then boyfriend behind my back, insisting there was nothing going on and then getting with him officially two days after we broke up, then going to Uni and cheating on him with half her campus. The fourth is my ex boyfriend who was not very nice to me at all. In fact, I have a restraining order against him, but I don't think I'm allowed to ask him to leave since he was invited.
- Both of these combined with my lack of self restraint means there WILL be harsh words, or even punches, exchanged between me and the four people up there. My friend Ross is much stronger than me and CAN hold me back if it comes to it, but I'd rather not do that, since it would put a damper on the night.
On the other hand, some really really great friends will be out with me, and I want to have some fun with them. However, I'm considering not going because of the potential for a great big fistfight with me in the middle.
What would you do in my situation?
