Thanks for the prayers, I got home Friday and slept most of the day. Feeling almost normal again 🙂
About a month and a half ago, I got invited to a Halloween Get-Together for Couples. It sounded fun and I already sent in our RSVP. Notice how I said “our” RSVP. It’s for couples only, I’m assuming my friend and her husband have planned games and activities around that idea for it to be stressed so much in the invitation. The problem is that when the RSVP got sent, I was part of a couple and he had every intention of going with me. Since we are no longer together and not even on speaking terms there is no way we are appearing there together. The party is next weekend (October 16th) and as of today I have no boyfriend to drag along. I really want to go, I haven’t seen this circle of friends in years. On the other hand, I don’t want to be the odd one out for games and activities or disobey the rules of the gathering.
The way I see it, I have a few different options:
1) Go to the party anyway. Conveniently forget that it’s for couples only. Drink as much alcohol as it takes.
2) Go to the party with blow up man doll in tow. Dress him up and make him look cute. Make sure everyone at the party knows we are exclusive.
3) Try to find a date from my usual outlet, Craigslist. Offer money if needed and stress it’s for one night only and that he has to act like a gentleman. Possibly look under something other than Misc. Encounters like I usually do. No, my male friends won’t go with me. Their wives would hurt them.
4) Not go to the party, cancel and give honest reason why. Be slightly aggravated that just because I’m not attached to anyone I’m denied admission to a party. Alcohol might be needed here too.
Those are my options as I see it. Anyone have another option for me? I’m all ears!
