Communication Skills/NICE BOY


I was wondering would you please tell me: is it impolite for some one to arrange a date to catch up, after that friend asked you if you want to catch up with them but they don’t say a date?

(P.S would you please try to give your answer in a easy way that I can understand)

hi Cameron,

It may not be due to impoliteness, and I can think of a few reasons for people doing this.  Maybe your friend simply forgotten needs a reminder, maybe they are disorganized and just haven't gotten around to it, and maybe in the end they just said that in order to get away as quickly and politely as possible.

Cameron, the easiest way to find out is for you to call them and say, "Hey, when are you free to get together to catch up, Friday night or Saturday afternoon?"

That way you are nudging them to be definite about a date, at the same time letting your friend know that you are fully expecting them to meet with you.  If your friend reschedules at another specific time, then you will have you get together; if your friend blows it off without giving you a time then you have your real answer, and I guess they were not a real friend in the first place.

it is always better to act then to sit and question what is really going on.

I hope this is helpful please rate this answer honestly.
