Dance about the room talking loudly about what you’ll wear, how your hair should be done, and how you’ve been aching to dance.
Share in the general merriment, but wait to really talk about it until you can sit down later with your best friend.
Squeal with delight and try to get a word in edgewise above all the fuss.
Smile at everyone's happiness and know everyone will have a lovely time.
Hope you will meet an eligible gentleman. Your family has been anticipating your marriage for long enough.
Suppose you must go, but you do not like dancing or being in company.
Fake a smile and feel dissatisfied when you think about the other people who will be going.
Think he is rather rude, but since he is that way, it is better you did not have to dance with him.
Did not expect it, anyways. Your best friend is perturbed and emphatically declares that it will be his loss.
Did not want to be asked, anyways. But you are never singled out, and deep inside you feel hurt.
Laugh. Who does he think he is? There are many men who are far more agreeable to choose from.
Feel rather hurt, but the circumstance was presented humorously, so you tell the story to your friends and have a good laugh about it.
Decide to compliment and agree with him on everything, and then he will want to dance with you. He his handsome and rich; you won’t let this be a set-back.
Start to sulk until your best friend laughs and laughs, and you cannot help joining in. Then she finds you a different partner and you forget it ever happened.
Accept. It will be lovely to see their dear children again!
Accept, and try to convince them to take along your best friend, too. It would be dreadfully dull without her!
Decline. If you wanted to go, your own family would take you.
Accept. An escape from monotony is always welcome.
Accept. You enjoy their company, and would dearly like to visit that place.
Decline. You would rather stay home.
Accept. You love anything new and exciting!
“If you like it, you should get it.”
“I wouldn’t get it if I were you. Why do you care so much about what’s considered cool?”
“Everything looks good on you, dear!”
“What, that? How could you think that looks good?”
“I thought you said you were looking for a new dress.”
“It’s ugly, but you might as well get it anyways.”
“Oh…sure,” after blinking a few times.
Tell them you do not care about what they said/did.
Try to understand them, and perhaps apologize if they think it was your fault.
Tell them exactly what you think! Well, you might try to be tactful at first. But if it goes too far...
Bear it with composure.
Glare at them, turn sharply way, and talk very meanly about them behind their backs.
You don’t often become angry. If someone starts to say something you do not like, you simply tune them out.
Think a little too well of people
Not care enough about things
Be a stick-in-the-mud
