So a high school friend who I've havent seen for almost 10 years wants to come visit me, but I'm not so excited about it. We weren't really all that close even though they've visited me during high school times. I don't know anything about this person now. But I am a little curious but more uncomfortable. What would you do.. should I invite them over?

Maybe, why not hang out some public place and not in your house. That way, it will be much better for both sides. You don't have to bother to clean up your house, and nervous about how they judge you and your house setting. You can feel much comfortable if your both families met at the restaurant, and discuss something fun in a public setting. When you get to know him/her more, then you can invite him/her to your house.

Maybe if you're really uncomfortable inviting them to your house, why not meet them for lunch or dinner somewhere else, like a fine restaurant in your place? Then, at least, you get to catch up on each other's lives but you're not in your house. Then, if things go better, you can invite them in your house some other time.

I personally would not bother. I have some friends from high school, but I only remained friends with one of them. I never went to or hung out with any old high school friends. But thats me. If you're curious, then maybe it would be a good idea, but don't make a big thing out of it. Sit down and really think about it. It is ultimately your decision.

If you don't feel friendly toward this person and feel even alittle uncomfortable I would make my excuses and not invite them over. Why should you? You don't feel any friendly admiration or curiousity so why have them over? I would just say you have other plans and will be busy in a tactful way.

I might plan to go to lunch with them or something like that but as far as inviting them over, I probably wouldn't. That is just me though. I have actually got a recent invitation from someone I haven't seen in forever wanting to "get together." I am curious too and I have thought about the lunch thing but that is as far as I am willing to go until I see how it pans out. I am not one to let a lot of people "in." Good luck and let us know what you decide or how it goes.

I have been to class reunions a number of times. It felt so good every time, meeting with old friends and very much valuing the wonderful time we had together back at school. Well, for case now, if you very much feel uncomfortable to meet this person, just give an excuse, you are busy ot some thing. But, otherwise, it is good to value the class reunion.
