wallflower

Someone who remains on the outer edges of a social event, especially a dance or party, and does not participate due to being shy or unpopular. I used to be a real wallflower when I was in high school. It wasn't until I got to college that I finally started having a bit more confidence and began enjoying myself at parties.
