Hi folks. I come to you again for advice.
I am friends with a family at Church. They are nice, and treat me well. I often go to breakfast with them, have dinner at their house and I am in contact with them etc. Nice family and great people.
Yesterday I got a message from their daughter (who is 17) asking me to her school dance. Now, I just don't know what to say. I am a 21 year old man, I live on my own I cook I clean I'm a postgraduate student. To be honest, I really just don't want to go. Hanging around with school kids all night? Really? But how can I say no without creating tension or sounding rude? I can't lie because, obviously, that's a sin. But I can't just say "No" either because they will take it to heart, and she might take it to heart too. I just don't understand why I would get put in this position, it's just no fair.
What to do? White lie? Just say no and hope for the best? Suck it up and say yes?
Yeah it's trivial but what can I do :)
