I did NaNoWriMo (a writing thing) and I’ve been going to a writing group that has tried to continue on meeting in cafes in non-NaNo months, but it has fizzled out to 2 or 3 people going (the third being my friend). So the other guy let’s call him Mike has invited me, just me, to his place today to write. I feel uncomfortable about this because a. I don’t know him all that well - I’ve only sat by him to write and chat sometimes. b. he is unemployed, lives in a bad neighborhood. c. he seems REALLY keen on me coming to his house, always inviting me over for dinner etc. I am a lesbian and not interested in him, and what if he is just coming on to me? Or he could just be being nice, but I cannot tell. I am more reserved and just don’t trust him completely. I’d feel guilty if I said no though.

I would much rather write by myself, or continue meeting in coffee shops with more people. Am I being ridiculous and I should just go? Or how do I tell him no indefinitely while being polite? I could come up with an excuse for this weekend but then he’d ask me again next weekend.
