Here it is 11:28 and someone is helping take the group to their destination. The group as a whole while traveling share stories, hopes and pictures from the past and talk about what they are looking forward to what the trip will bring. Sharing the stories from the past and the joint experience of the present develops a bond and strengthen companionships that will build a better balance for future compromises.
Facing you: Go with the group event. It will give you a better perspective of your current situation.
Facing away: Members of a group get changed or they change themselves. New and different positions become available. Some members could "curb" themselves.
