If you don’t have class with them now and you won’t again, I see no reason to continue to be “friends” with people that you aren’t really friends with. Why would they insist on you being there if you guys aren’t really all that friendly and are only “FB friends?” I guess I don’t get where the pressure has come from?

I think it’s perfectly reasonable to not want to go…unless these are people who are going to be valuable network assets for you later. Then you might want to suck it up and just go as a “networking/career” thing.

Sounds like, if they were that disorganized and difficult to work with, they wouldn’t be very good people to know in the long term, so I wouldn’t fret too much about it! Just give a little white lie–oh, FI and I are so busy planning the wedding and keeping up with classes, I can’t possibly squeeze it in; I am so sorry!

Something that always works for me is this sentence:

“I’m really sorry, I’d love to but my SO and I are really trying to save money for our wedding.  Going out doesn’t fit into our budget right now.  Have fun!”

The best part is: I’m never really lying.  We do try to watch our budget 🙂

Don’t go if you don’t want to.

Yeah, I wouldn’t go.  If you aren’t going to see them again, then it’s not a big deal to make up an excuse.  Give it some time and you will be able to delete them off Facebook!  This reminds me I should go through and purge my friends list of people I don’t see or talk to at all! 🙂

You should not feel obligated to go.
