1. Come with a friend

You will feel much more comfortable at the party with a friend. You can ask him to help you meet people if he is more open-minded than you. Read How to make friends with others if you are a modest introvert.

2. Set a goal

Don’t wander around the room trying to get the names of as many people. Decide on a specific goal. For example, tell yourself that your job is to get to know and talk to two or three strangers. Read Five techniques to help introverts communicate successfully with the outside world.

3. Choose your parties wisely

You don’t have to go to every event you’re invited to if you feel uncomfortable around many people. Instead, focus on parties and other events you are most curious about. On them, you are more likely to meet people with similar views and interests, making acquaintances easier for you.

4. Reward yourself

Reward yourself whenever you attend a party, meet people, or otherwise step out of your comfort zone. For example, buy something you have long wanted but did not dare, or go to your favorite restaurant. Treat yourself for your courage.
