Albeit the Scot in me is of the Western stock and the red of the Cairngorms, the heather and the Lewissian gneiss, the Viking in me was there when you uttered the first word of your leid.
At our age? I mean, with teenagers, there certainly is this kind of pressure, but among students, adults? Well, maybe I'm not the most average person in this regard, I don't care about having as many friends as possible, I like having really good friends, and I like spending time talking to them, meeting at home or in a nice café... (actually, some of my best friends live a long way away from me, in Scotland for example, so seeing them usually means spending a holiday there)
I've never considered parties to be very important for socialising. At university you usually first meet new people in your classes, and then if you like each other you maybe go and have a coffee together, and if you really become friends, you meet for a cosy chat at home or you spend an afternoon in town, etc. Parties don't play a big role in all that, do they? And well, about the whole flirting business - I'm happily married anyway, so I'm not interested in that

We just simply turn the porch light off in that case to keep kids away. Not all listen though, so in that case, we just disable the doorbell and go to a room far away where we can't hear the door knock. Music on as well.
