Invited to a party? Should I bring a date?

As seen on:

“I am single and received an invitation in the mail to a party given by a couple that I am newly acquainted with and I get the feeling it’s a couples party. Should I bring a date?” …Cathy

Hopefully you still have the envelope in-hand and that, with any luck, will answer your question. If the invitation was addressed only to you, then it is not expected of you to bring a date, so you should not. Who knows, you may meet some really interesting people! If the invitation says ‘and guest’, then now is your excuse to ask someone to join you for the fun evening.

Don’t forget, hop over to the “comfortable conversation” post to leave a comment … we will give away a Manner Monday placemat to a lucky winner who leaves a comment or shares a story from their Thanksgiving dinner.  I will randomly draw the winning name on Monday, November 26.
