If a dear friend invited you to a social event in their home and you are aware that several people you seriously dislike will be there....
sort by best latest
Dashing ....you give the best, most common sense, comprehensible answers! I'm glad you stopped by. Any social gathering would be interesting with you there!!
Jaye you said a lot of good. I say "I'm sorry I have other plans. Maybe another time." My other plans may be to sit in front of the TV with a bowl of popcorn, but they don't need to know that. Or, "Something's come up. We'll talk later. Have fun."
Jaye....You've lived up to the "wisdom" part of your name.....very logical decision and your reasons would certainly be acceptable. Some people make popcorn seem like more fun!! LOL
Sha, Your comment seems to be a common thought. I suppose our GOOD friends should know who we like to AVOID. Yet sometimes I don't think people realize how personal it may be!! Thanks Sha, I think you'd make the right choice. :)
WOW! lambservant. Everyone needs a good friend like you who would put so much effort into giving the perfect response. Bless your heart.
What a comforting fact that your dear friends would be so thoughtful on your behalf. I understand the possibility of awkwardness or drama if & when we're placed in unpleasant situations. Thanks, K.
Sondra...great, responsible answer. You're a good friend.....and I understand why you would ignore the others.
Crisantonio.....Sounds like an honest and common sense answer. You know though, it may be a good idea to smile from ear to ear and just totally ignore those you dislike!! LOL
You are a good friend Shujinko.....I did not use the word, "hate"......I said, "seriously dislike." Hate may be a negative emotion my friend, but it is a real one nonetheless. We simply do not ALL love EVERYONE. Thanks for replying.
