Go to the party, get a few drinks inside you and see where you end up. Or if you are serious about leaving, do it asap and see where you end up... make plans or dwell the choice is simple.

Q is right about social opportunities though. You can find all kinds of groups if you search the web. Take up a sport or something. I grew up in a town with about 3000 people in it. I went to community college where there were 5000 people attending. I had to drive 45 minutes one way every day to get there, but I went. It helped me get into a college that has 30,000 people in it. I got out of my pond and college was my route. It was my route to a new social environment too. Sometimes you have to travel out of your way a bit to do it. You can do it though.
I'm curious if your issue is more that you're lonely or if it's more that you dislike your location. For example, if your location was one that made you happy would you still be down because you're alone? OR if you had a girl would you still be down because your location sucks? One of those will be a more emphatic yes than the other. That should tell you what is really bothering you. If it's the girl then I suggest dating websites if you are having trouble getting out and meeting new women in your area. If nothing else you can form online relationships and perhaps they can blossom into reality. Even if they never become real though, it would give you some sort of social interaction.

I think I would be happier if I did have a gf. I think its a combination of being lonely and the people in my area. I am hoping to start off fresh again once I move but I still do not plan on partying. I was brought up around parents who don't drink or smoke so I have never seen the fun associated with these typed of things.

To give you something to think about when finding new people to interact with: the average person our age tends to be comfortable letting their friends/acquaintances do as they please, so long as they can still make their own choices. I suggest realizing that as long as no one is forcing you to stay at a party all night, or forcing you to drink or do anything else you aren't interested in, you can still have fun with the people who do those things you aren't interested in. You can hang out with them all day and then just not go to the party later. You can go to the party and hang out until they start to get drunk. You don't have to stay. You can let your friends do all of the things you've no interest in doing, and they can still be your friends.
