Unsociable sort is unhappy at party (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

saddo

Here is my best explanation:

'unsociable sort' is the definition.

'unhappy at party' is the subsidiary indication.

'unhappy' becomes 'sad' ('sad' can be a synonym of 'unhappy').

'at' is a charade indicator (letters next to each other).

'party' becomes 'do' (do is a kind of party).

'sad'+'do'='saddo'

'is' is the link.

(Other definitions for saddo that I've seen before include "Boring loner" and "He's pathetic!".)
