There’s nothing like a good old fashioned house party with the right drinks, the right music and the right people who sometimes fit into certain categories. We came up with a list of 5 different types of people who you always meet at every house party.
We’ve all been this person at a house party. Once you’ve made sure whoever invited you has been acknowledged and grabbed a drink, you find a safe corner where no one will come and start a conversation. If the music is good then the night isn’t too bad. Either way, you never stay too long.
The Person Who Knows Everyone
Every house party is either a high school reunion or a networking event for this person. If you thought walking in a mall with them was hard then forget about getting one step forward without them greeting someone from that place they used to hang out in way back when.
The opposite of the Wallflower, this party animal isn’t there for the music or the drinks. The second you step into the place they take off to survey the area. By the time you’ve found the drinks table, they have already found their mark. If you’re lucky you reconnect at some point of the night but more often than not, it’s a solo cab ride home as they take off with their catch of the night.
We all have that friend who invites everyone they meet to join you guys. It doesn’t just happen at the club. One minute there’s only two of you in your corner before you know it you’re in the middle of a small crowd. If you can’t think of anyone like this then maybe you’re the gatherer of your friend group.
No this isn’t Project X so don’t go climbing the roof. Okay, they might not be that extra but this person always comes with all the expectations and is disappointed when none of them happens. More often than not you can hear them yelling how so-and-so’s party was much bigger, how that guy you follow on social media showed up at the last party they were at.
