Do you feel awkward walking into a room full of people, on your own?

Is it different if you are with someone?

I have had to do this sometimes even when I had a partner.

It all depends on the situation -whether I know the people there.

I do find it awkward if I have to walk into a room alone and I do not know anyone in there as I do not know who to go to.

It is totally different walking in to a room of strangers if I am with someone as this does not worry me in the slightest.

I used to and then learnt to be one of the first to arrive, that makes all the difference. you then get to talk to the other people that are on time, before they all get into their little groups which are hard to break into if you arrive later.
I feel awkward if I don't know anyone. I can chat to anyone - where I have difficulties is small talk. In these situations it's important to be good at small talk in order to get a conversation going

I would have no problem with this. In my job I have attended many functions, seminars and conferences alone and have no trouble mixing. Networking was always a big part of the job and I lost my discomfort for it many years ago.
Well once again this pertains to my job as a Celebrant....I constantly have to walk in front of a whole lot of strangers so...NO it no longer bothers me at all. I was at first however, took awhile.

Although it is not my favourite thing to have to do,I never seem to have any problems with it, I have had to attend many functions when I was working,and I would not know a single soul.There would usually be others in the same boat,and somehow we always seemed to gravitate towards each other and find things in common,even if that something is simply not knowing anyone!!!
Depends on the circumstances and whether I might know anyone there.
I would say it depends on many different factors. What the occasion is, what my role is, how I'm feeling that day, whether I want to be there or not.....
And none of that is different if I'm with someone or not. It's entirely variable depending on me!
No I don't really.
I would have 30 years ago, but not any more.
It depends on what is going on and how many people are in the room. If it is a large group of people at an informal gathering, then I don't feel awkward at all. If it's a small group of people I do feel awkward if I don't know anybody, unless somebody throws me a bone and attempts to engage me in the conversation. I love people like that!
No, not at all! Am fortunate to have the confidence to do so, with aplomb! Will speak to someone there that I know & take it from there. If it's a room full of 'strangers' I'll just join a smal group & fall into their conversation!

Makes no difference if someone with me, would follow same procedure!
Has never failed me yet!

Yes; I have social anxiety - I get nervous even walking into a room of friends.
No, I always say hello to the nearest person I meet, it tends to "break the ice".
If I am with someone it is no different.
I also love to be the 1st to arrive in a room, with or without my husband, but having said this, I'm/we're only at art gallery openings or book launches, so I know my family members who are going to be coming later. If I went up to someone I didn't know, I wouldn't know what to say to them! One thing my husband doesn't like is that we're nearly always the last to leave!
