There are two types of people in this world:
1. People who respond quickly to evites — replying with a “yes/no/maybe” immediately
2. People who keep checking the evite daily … weighing their options … mulling it over … and finally deciding to never respond
Ever send out an evite? As the sender, you can see when someone looks at the evite. Sometimes I’ll see that someone looked at an evite multiple times but still not respond. What gives?
There is such a thing as evite etiquette. If someone is kind enough to send you an invite to their birthday party, a gallery opening they are having, etc. you should be kind enough to respond right away with a “yes”, a “no”, or at least a “maybe”. If you are truly not sure or have trouble making decisions then reply with a “maybe”. That’s much better than the I-looked-at-the-evite-but-will-pretend-that-i-never-saw-it routine ….
