  • I got invited to party by someone I don't know... any advice?

    You know those evite things? Normally I think they're great. I just got one from a guy inviting me to his birthday party. Problem is, I have no idea who this person is. Never heard the name before in my life. Yet my full name and email address appears on the list, so he (?) knows me somehow. How should I respond to this?

    I even looked at other names on the list... I think he's somehow related to my old performing dance company, as I recognized only one other name on the list (out of 350+!) as another former member. Still isn't ringing any clear bells, though.

    P.S. Sorry I really haven't been writing much here lately, but work's been crazy, and probably will be until... oh, July or so. On the plus side, I'll be taking off some time in about 2 weeks to visit WDW (both work related as well as fun... also plan to stop by IOA for the first time ever! Whee-ha!).
    Does anyone even bother with signatures anymore?

    I wouldn't go honestly.

    1) he is a stranger
    2) you only know 1 out of a few hundred people which definately makes your chances of being bored a whole lot higher. It's like going to a high school reunion it seems like.

      Since he obviously has your e-mail even though you don't know him, I would send him an e-mail and ask him to tell you exactly how he got your e-mail.

      I kept getting e-mails from a lady whose e-mail name I didn't recognize and it turned out to be my husband's aunt.

      Even my own mother didn't know who my e-mail name was till I told her.

          I agree with Pixywingz, i get invites from friends on Myspace who apprently i "know" from school, but am i gonna go?? heck no! that party's gonna be so big-like one of those from those super sweet sixteens where there's a thousand people there just for the party, not the person.

                GO DUDE!

                If after 10 minutes the people aren't hospitable ... all you have to do is simply leave.

                Nothing ventured - nothing gained.

                Right?

                  If you got the same invitation in snail mail...would you go? Think about it!
                  Mom, remember, it's not what a person is like on the outside that counts,
                  it's what they are like in their HEART!

                        What if it turns out to be some sort of cult recruitment device, or an Amway sales meeting?!?!?!?

                        Seriously though, just ask the dude how he got your e-mail. If he has a satisfactory answer, go. If its in a creepy place, or has creepy people, leave (unless creepy is your bag).

                              personaly, I don't think I'd go....you don't know anyone, have no idea how he got your e-mail or even who the heck this is...I say skip it, it seems a bit out of place to me anyway...just a bit creepy
