As you could probably deduce from the fact that I'm posting on CC, I'm not the most social person in the world, hence I try to avoid school events like homecoming at all costs. However, yesterday this girl that I'm friends with asked me to go. We aren't really close friends and we almost never hang out but we've always been friendly so I guess she just wanted to go as friends. She's a cool person and she's pretty also, but I just REALLY don't want to go to homecoming. I have 7 APs this year and a messy extracurricular schedule, plus I am in no mood whatsoever to deal with all the BS over ticket/tux/transportation/after party. Plus, I feel incredibly uncomfortable at school dances and I hate dancing in front of people so I always have a miserable time (at my 8th grade dance I swear I must have walked like 3.8 miles just wandering around the perimeter by the punch bowl so I wouldn't look awkward sitting by myself). =(
The thing is, I have no idea what to say to her. Yesterday I kind of awkwardly mentioned that I wasn't planning on going, but I didn't give her a straight answer. I told her that if I were to go, I would definitely go with her, but that's just delaying my decision until later. I don't want to hurt her feelings but I want her to know that its nothing against her, I just honestly don't want to go. How do I do this?
Maybe some CC ladies could help me with this one ...?
