My friend is having a party and some people I don't like
are going to be there. Should I skip the party, or go and ignore them? What if
something goes wrong? What do I do?
If you have a few close friends going that you know you can
hang out with and be comfortable around, then I say go for it! Have your own fun and don’t let other
people ruin your night.
There’s no reason you should have to interact with the
people you don’t like if there are other girls and guys you can hang with. If
you’re faced with confrontation, though, don’t sweat. Slap a friendly smile on
your face and keep your words civil. Just ‘cause you don’t like each other
doesn’t mean you can’t get along for one night, right?
Just in case, though, let’s say you do go to the party and something bad does happen. What now? Call Mom and Dad, an older sib or
family member, or an older friend who can legally drive and ask for a ride
home. There’s no shame in heading home early. If you need an excuse, tell your
buds you’re really not feeling well. Head outside for a little fresh air and
wait for your getaway car, OK, babe?
Good luck and have fun!
