You are invited to a party that will be attended by many fascinating people you've never met. Would you want to go if you had to go by yourself?
No, I wouldn't. Even if I knew I'd be rubbing elbows with people that I've wanted to meet all my life, I still wouldn't want to be there if I didn't actually know anyone else. I'm too introverted to be able to enjoy that kind of situation. It takes me way too long to get comfortable enough to open up around strangers.
