  • I think that your basic problem is that you somehow feel inferior to others. When we don't hold ourselves in high regard, we really do send out negative vibes to others that will actually push them away from us rather than attracting them to us. The next time you are invited somewhere, don't even think about who else is going to be there, what they will be wearing or what their status is. Dress yourself in something that you feel especially pretty in. Make yourself as attractive as you have the means. Walk into that event with the knowledge that you are special, you are attractive, and you have come to have a good time. Don't wait for others to speak to you. Walk around the room, speaking to others. If someone chooses to engage in conversation, stay and chat. If not, keep moving around the room. When you have spoken to everyone you know, look for a seat in an area where you will be comfortable, and people watch.

  • Personally I would do nothing.  If they want to look down their noses at you because you aren't in their stratosphere then that is their problem not yours.  Carry on with your life and ignore them, they aren't worth your time and effort.

  • Maybe it's the other way feel inferior to them so you do not try to make contact...just because you make less money or don't have the luxuries that they do, doesn't make you less of a have the same goals in life as succeed. Instead of being a wallflower, strike up a conversation...keep it to things that you are passionate about and that will speak louder than any money or education that they may have.

  • Holds your head up, smile and carry along with what it is your doing, don't focus on the A-holes around you, and I agree with jademom, just be yourself, talk mingle, let them know the real you, and see what you are all about. They may think they run the town but they aren't the only one's living and a part of it, everyone unifies the community!

  • I couldn't care less what others think of me. I make myself feel good about me so they can't take that away from me. Act like you own the world. People respond to your body language not your social status.Show confidence even if you don't feel it. Smile, that will throw them off!

  • Go other places where peoiple won't judge you. Or stop trying to impress people that don't know you. Are you disappointed in your "financial status"? Your own life and family are more important.

  • Sounds like you need some self-confidence. If you dont put out there that you are open and comfortable to being talked to, you won't get talked to.. at parties and such. Maybe you need to think the way you are putting yourself out there, because obviously social class means something to you. You would be suprised how much what you think or know about the "upper" class is incorrect. You think they care about what class you are in, but they don't.
