You're socially challenged.

We all have our own ways of working a party and those ways are dependent on a lot of variables: are you an introvert or an extrovert? Are you shy or outgoing? Would you rather have a one on one conversation or do you come alive when you can really let loose and get wild?

There are behaviors that you may do out of nervousness or habit. Do you find yourself monopolizing every debate or is it that you can never find a good time to insert yourself into the conversation?

Social events can be challenging, even for the most outgoing of us. You want to make a good impression, have a wonderful time and not do anything you’re likely to regret.

The problem is that if you have anxiety about how you act in social situations, you may go over your behavior repeatedly long after the party is over.

For some, parties are all about networking and making connections that will help them in their career which can put extra pressure on them. How can you truly relax and enjoy yourself if your whole future is riding on how well you interact with a potential client at a mixer?

If you’re feeling nervous at a social event, what’s your go-to? Do you focus on your phone and risk alienating other people or do you try to be the life of the party with jokes and physical comedy gags?

Sometimes these go-to social behaviors are less endearing and more annoying, especially when repeated. It’s a good idea to know what these mannerisms, tics, and social mistakes are so that you can possibly avoid them in the future.

Here’s how annoying you are in a social setting, based on your zodiac sign.

 

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

You double book big time. When it comes to social events, you're quite popular, so much so that you often have to schedule multiple events for one evening. You barely spend any time with any of them and you can be a little too direct if you don't think the party is enough to make you stay. If you're going to rush off, at least make your apologies and don't be a jerk about it.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

You stay forever. You enjoy a good party and/or social event but it's as if you feel the need to squeeze every drop out of it. By the time you're even thinking of leaving, the hosts are exhausted and can't wait to officially shut the party down. Learn how to take a hint; if your hosts are yawning and talking about how late it is, that's your cue that you should have left hours ago.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

You always bring a plus one, even if the invitation is very specific about not bringing anyone. You also have no trouble bringing kids to grown-up events. Not every occasion is child-friendly, but if you can't find a sitter and you have the urge to socialize there's nothing that's going to stop you from attending.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Whenever you go to a social event, you bring whatever mood you're in with you. It all depends on how you're feeling — you can be the effervescent life of the party or Debbie Downer bringing the merriment of the party to an immediate halt. You don't have to share how you're feeling 100 percent of the time and honestly, that guy you just met isn't that interested in hearing about what a jerk your ex was.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

You feel compelled to show everyone how you're the life of the party and you always need to be performing. It's exhausting watching you try too hard to impress people with your sense of humor or listing your many accomplishments. Can't you turn it down a notch? The real you is just as spectacular as your public persona if only you'll let people see it.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

You arrive at any social function way too early and it's not only annoying, it's awkward for both you and the host. It's great that you don't want to be late but cool your jets. Haven't you ever heard the term fashionably late? Let the party have some time to get started before you arrive and that way you'll avoid making the party-throwers resent you.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

You're always scanning the crowd, looking for a bigger name to talk to. It's rude when you're in a middle of a conversation and you suddenly stop and then walk away to talk to someone else. Yes, many social events are about networking but you don't have to make it quite so obvious that's why you're there. You can find something interesting about everybody if you try.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

You never remember anybody's name even if they've met you before. Is it that you're nervous that you're going to mess up and say the wrong name or is your memory that bad? It may that you just don't care about who so and so is and that's just annoying. At least we know why you never introduce anyone to each other: you can't remember either of their names.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

You never RSVP, you just show up. There's a reason that when you're invited somewhere, they like to know if you're coming. They may have a limited amount of food or drink or even party favors and if they're not expecting you, the hosts may have to scramble to accommodate you. Besides, when you don't RSVP, it looks like you were waiting for a better offer and when that didn't happen, you decided that this crappy event was better than staying home and doing nothing.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

You tend to choose one person and then you stick to them like glue. It's true that social functions can be scary but if you're a barnacle to another party-goer, then you're cramping their style and maybe preventing them from having a good time.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

You get nervous and force yourself into the conversation with pointless stories and trivia. If you actually listen to the conversation, you may be able to think of something relevant to it and something that will expand the conversation rather than shutting it down and making yourself look uncomfortable and somewhat foolish.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

You tend to only talk to the people you know and then you leave way too early. You don't have a curfew or a project that absolutely must be completed that night (most of the time), so it's pretty clear that you're leaving because you have hit your social tolerance level and you need to get out. When you absolutely must stay (if you got a ride with someone), you just disappear into the fantasy world in your head.
