Do you enjoy hosting parties?
Nope. Socializing with people stresses me out. And I'm too lazy to plan crap like that
I fucking hate socializing.
I hate the inviting and organizing parts, but I LOVE the decorating and making it fun and pretty part. And the part where people come over and enjoy it.
No, but my husband does. So I just go with it. I do all the cleaning and organizing for it. He does all the cooking.

Yes but parties not just another couple.
Heck no, I'm an introvert.
Not any large parties of more than four persons.
I love the planning aspect but during the actual party I can't seem to relax because i feel like i must be in control of everything
I'm glad I'm not the only one. I totally can't keep it together and hence I never have people over. I can't explain it but i just become a hot mess. I can go over to someone else's place and be totally normal. Some people seem to have a knack for this.
Yup. Hosted today. Fun, fun, fun.
I like helping the host at parties. That gives me the opportunity to bring something and visit, yet have a responsibility, especially if the conversation lulls and I need something to do.
I don't like parties at all, let alone hosting them.
Yes and no. As the host I get to pick the music and activities, but I hate cleaning the house.
Not. At. All. Too much stress, having to shop, clean, set up, make sure everything is cold enough, or hot enough, finding music everyone likes. Inevitably I burn something or forget something. I'm never ready by the time it's party time.
I think I'd I had a big enough house and deck or patio I'd like it a lot more.
I can identify with that. I get stressed out, cleaning and cooking, and am never ready.
Oh yeah. Its fun
I love parties! It's fun to meet new people and have all your friends together in one place
I do. We have the right house and yard for it...everyone can freely move around without climbing over each other. It's great to see this place filled up with people having fun :). We're having our traditional Memorial Day Hungarian Bacon Roast tomorrow, and I can't wait!
Going to is OK, depending on where it is and what will be going on, but hosting is not my favorite thing. At all.
I absolutely love it
I enjoy organizing large parties, but not hosting them, at least not alone.
Hosting a small get-together alone is cool though.
Yes because I have a role. I hate ATTENDING parties because I'm the awkward button that doesn't know what to do. But if I host I serve, cook, grill, make drinks, etc.
I said "no" but I really don't know - never done it. My husband doesn't like having people over.
It depends on what you mean by party. If you're talking about a family birthday party or holiday celebration, sure.
If you're talking about a party with alcohol, no, as I don't drink and have never been to a party like that.
💠 Poll Q:
Do you enjoy hosting parties?
Have you ever heard of a movie called Henry Gamble's Birthday Party?
Lol. Twice! I probably should give an explanation for my questions after the questions hahah! It's a movie written by an evangelical about Christianity and modern issues. Obviously it is about a birthday party but it deals with alcoholism, family and sexuality. Your comments about birthday parties and alcohol made me think of it. Just a random ??? haha
I looked it up and would not be interested in it. I have a big problem with the fact that ALL movies/tv shows show Christians in a negative light. We're either acting like they were in this movie, or priests being pedophiles, or some serial killer that uses Bible verses as justification for his murders.
The ONLY tv show that I can think of in which they portray Christians in a good way is Blue Bloods, a family that goes to church and prays at Sunday dinner every week.
And FYI, my being a Christian is not the only reason I don't drink. In fact, many denominations do drink. My mother became an alcoholic when I was 15, drank only beer, and committed suicide when I was 20, with a shotgun blow to the head, one month before my 2nd child was born. Her father and all her brothers were also alcoholics and one of them committed suicide also.
I can understand that. I like it because not only did it treat everything impartially, but it had great insight. May sound cliche but my Christian friends loved it (they recommended it to me). I thought it treated everything fairly
I'm surprised at that. Where did you see it?
Rather attended them instead👏🏻😀
