Invited to a wedding I don’t really know anyone, and bride said I can bring a friend - would you expect that to be a guy or girlfriend? Would people think it’s more than friendship if I bring a guy, or weird if I bring a girl? Venue is 5 hour round trip

You’re overthinking this.
A friend can be whoever you feel fits the title. I will say I’ve had the most fun at weddings with my girl friend as my plus 1.


Bring whoever you want! They’ll be your date for the evening.


I brought my sister to one as my date because I was recently single and didn’t have any guy I wanted to bring. We had a blast and I don’t think anyone cared at all that it wasn’t a significant other. People pay more attention to the bride/ groom than they do to other attendees and their dates. Go with someone you’ll have a fun night with and make good memories with!

Assuming you’re staying there for the weekend or at least overnight? Take whomever you’re going to have the most fun with that weekend and on the road trip.

My plus ones to weddings have been guys I’m dating, gay guy friends, close girlfriends. There’s no right or wrong.

I’ve brought a good guy friend to a wedding before and it was a blast. Bring someone you’re comfortable with who can make friends. You’ll have fun!

I will say I brought a straight male friend to a wedding and everyone thought we were dating. A little awkward

I love what I do and where I work - I’ve grown a great network/ reputation throughout the entire company, but it’s getting to that point in my life where we want to build a family. My company offers zero paid leave and has confirmed that policy will stay in place. Not to mention we cannot accumulate PTO and most only get 2-3 weeks off a year AND the company blocked FMLA because it’s owned and operated on tribal land. I’m just not sure if it’s worth seeking new opportunities or sticking it out?

Help - my offer just got accepted and I need to secure mortgage within 30 days. What are the hidden things I need to consider apart from interest rates. My preapproval has decent rate (2.75%) but I feel closing is high at $16k. Also lists transfer taxes that seller is expected to pay and I’m not sure if seller is aware. It also says I may not be able to refinance this loan. I’m immigrant and slightly overwhelmed and want to hear best tactics used while shopping around. Thanks in advance
