Weddings: The Nightmare of A Single Person.
I've been invited to another fucking wedding. And i'd like to ask the internet a question or two... of social etiquette, perhaps, to do with the issue of the plus one.
As a single, should i expect a plus one on an invitation?
Is it somewhat unfair of the smug-soon-to-be-marrieds to ask me to come to a wedding where i wont know many people, alone?
If i am granted a plus one, is it appropriate to take a girl friend for the sake of company, or does it have to be a boy friend?
Does said plus one have to be A Love Interest?
I suppose it is kind of naff to have a lovely wedding invitation say "Dear Mars +1"... and i geddit that people don't want to pay a hundred bucks a head for someone they don't know. And anyway, why do i have a problem going to these things alone?
So many questions, so few answers.
