Sit next to someone. If you sit alone, you will only feel more paranoid when people watch you. Also, you will meet people that live near the comp, therefore near you, and then you have a new cubing friend. Just ask "Hey, is someone sitting here?" I am very socially awkward and understand that it will feel weird, but I now have a new cubing friend because I took that step. Trust me, its very important.

Yup, I made that mistake too. At first I just sat with my family, and then I realized cubers don't mind if you sit with them.
