Friend's taking me to a ballroom party.

Of all the invitations I could receive from my best friend, why does it have to be going in a ballroom party? I mean, I donít have any negative reviews about ballroom affairs, itís just that I donít like it and not my thing. He said Iíll be meeting his friends *moderator edit* and theyíre expecting my presence, so that means not saying ďNOĒ to him. I donít dance! How should I get out with this? I need your advice!

You can't get out. You MUST go. There's no way to tell your friend no. Go. Meet a foreign bride at the social, get married, and live happily ever after doing what everyone else tells you because you can't say no.

Lucy - was your response "tongue in cheek"?


Philfoster - are you able to tell people "No" or are you a people pleaser? - even to your own detriment?

Tell your friend "NO" and don't JADE (Justify, argue, defend, explain) - you don't have to give a reason, NO means NO.
