Running into someone you don't like tops list of things that give people anxiety at parties

The fear of somebody you don't like showing up at the same party you're at ranks as the No.1 "party-xiety," according to new research.  A recent poll of 2,000 Americans also revealed that wanting to leave but not knowing howand feeling like you're not fitting in were among the top three anxieties people had at parties.  In fact, the average American party-goer knows within the first 10 minutes of showing up to aparty whether they'll be calling it an early night.  The study, conducted by OnePoll on behalf of Avocados From Mexico, also revealed thatover three in four Americans (78%) said they know immediately upon entering a party ifthey're actually going to have a good time.  The average American who participated in the survey says it takes them 14 minutes toactually relax at a party and start to enjoy themselves, while 63% said that every party theygo to has at least one person they'd like to avoid.  That prompts the question: Is it rude to ask the party host who will be attending in the firstplace?

According to the results: yes, it is.  That doesn't stop one in three Americans polled from "always" asking the host anyway, withonly 16% saying they will never ask.  With the Big Game around the corner, the survey found some interesting data for potentialparty hosts.  When it comes to hosting Big Game parties, party-goers should strive to make a strong firstimpression — 47% of those polled said they can tell immediately upon showing up at a partywhether or not they're going to bail at halftime.  The food and snacks better be on par, as seven in 10 Americans said they care more aboutthe food at the watch party than the actual game itself.  "As one of the greatest avocado consumption days of the year, it's no surprise thatconsumers expect guacamole at their watch parties," said Kevin Hamilton, head of brandmarketing, PR & strategy at Avocados From Mexico.

"In fact, almost half of consumers judgeparty hosts for not having guacamole."  And results show nearly half say they've left a Big Game watch party prematurely becausethe food was sub-par.  So, the question becomes, is the Big Game the biggest food holiday of the year?

Seventy-seven percent of Americans polled say they eat more during the game than Thanksgiving.  "No matter your party-xieties, I think everyone can agree that guacamole will be a welcomedguest," said Hamilton.
