I am a big football fan and want to have some game parties at my house. I am working on the invite list and have two dilemmas:
1. A year ago, I set up two friends, we’ll call them Ross and Meg. Initially, they were really into each other, then Meg decided she had too much going on in her life and wasn’t feeling much chemistry either. They broke up. Nothing dramatic, but Ross won’t let it go and doesn’t want to be in the same room with her. I have been friends with Ross a few years (a lot longer), but really enjoy Meg. The last time I had people over to watch football, I invited Ross, he couldn’t come, so I invited Meg and it was really fun to have her. I am inviting people they both know, but Ross knows them better. Because of that, I probably need to invite Ross, but do I invite Meg and give Ross a heads up, or do I only invite Meg if Ross can’t go?
2. Two of my friends who are the biggest football fans each have small children. My house is not childproofed (and would take a while to do it), and I don’t trust either of them to watch their children well enough. Also, none of my other friends have kids, and I don’t think they would do well, plus I’d like to have an adult event. Is it impolite to invite them without kids? How do I word it? OR are my options to invite them and deal with kids or not invite them?
