Dear Robyn and Skippy,
I have RSVP PTSD. As an introvert I feel conflicted over every invite, often wanting to go and not wanting to go at the same time. It’s not that I don’t like parties- I need me time thrive.
When I RSVP “yes” I never know if I’ll be having one of those days that I really need alone time on the day of the event and feel guilty about changing my RSVP at the last minute, or just not showing up. When I RSVP “maybe” well, let’s face it, I won’t be there. The only time I don’t feel like a jerk is when I RSVP “no” from the start but every once in a great while I am in the mood to party down.
What’s the best way for an introvert like me to handle this tricky RSVP business?
