The problem is... I haven't met any of these people, with the exception of 1 or maybe 2 if I'm lucky. Sounds like awkward times are ahead.
TQC, what can I do to make these situations not awkward? I'm not the most outgoing person, so the obvious "just make conversation with people" answer isn't all that helpful. :P I don't want to have to cling to my bf, but I'm not sure how well I'll do in these situations. What have you all done in awkward social situations when you don't know anyone?
If you don't care... favorite TV show?
