When it comes to RSVPing for events, you don’t have to say “yes.” At the same time, simply replying “no” can come off as cold or abrupt. Instead, state that you’re still being wary of social interactions, but express your appreciation for being inviting.

If you’re sending out invitations or want to plan a hangout, be sure to include that you are sensitive to the comfort levels of others. The less pressure you put on others the less likely they are to become offended or to give you a false RSVP.
