The Question Club
Ok I have a dilemma. It's a bit tl;dr so bear with me.|
I have a friend from elementary school who's getting married in 2 months, and I want to go to her wedding. She lives on the other side of the country. Going myself isn't a problem both financially and time-wise. I also really want to do a trip of some sort when I get there, maybe rent a car and travel around for a week or so. But I don't really want to go alone since I don't know anybody there. So I've asked a good friend of mine if he'd like to go on a trip with me, and he said he's interested, and said it sounds like fun since he's never been to that side of the country before. This was a few months ago so we just kind of tentatively talked about it, didn't decide on anything concrete. I think he's forgotten about it by now, but a few days ago he was telling me how he's expecting to get laid off in September so he wants to work as much as he can before then. This trip would not be cheap (the flight itself is $800 round trip), and I'm certainly not expecting that kind of financial or time commitment from him since it's not even his friend who's getting married. But I would really like him to come since it's almost guaranteed to be a fun and memorable time.
My question is, should I ask him if he's still interested, or would that make me sound pushy? I really don't want to sound as if I feel entitled to his time and money. Should I just start planning a one-person trip?
Thanks guys! I guess the answer was pretty obvious - I just need to get over my social anxiety and not be irrationally worried about stuff!
