Breathe Through This One

Posted on | September 20, 2015 | Comments Off

Dear Short Answers:
If people say they are coming to your home for a party but they don’t actually show up, what is the proper response?  Should I mention it to them the next time I see them or wait for them to bring it up?  I am a little concerned that they may have forgotten they were invited and are now holding a grudge because they may know that I had a big party without them.  On the other hand, I’m a little annoyed that they RSVPed “yes” and didn’t show.

Dear Help:
Seriously, why are you stressing? The “proper response” when someone doesn’t show at a party (if you truly are concerned) is to call or text the next day and say “I missed you last night, is everything okay?”  As for the possibility that they are holding a grudge because they weren’t invited to an event — let it go! Most grown-ups understand that everybody isn’t invited to everything and still manage to get on with their lives.
