    My friends have planned this big night out for weeks and have been talking for ages. They keep asking me what I'm wearing, where do I want to go etc - I've had no intention of going from the start. I have no money and am supporting my boyfriend at the moment too - plus trying to save. Does having no money sound like a lame excuse, if I say that one of them will try and lend me money. Being ill is less risky but seems more fake - especially as I was fine yesterday. Gah

    Do you not wanna go because you're skint, or just not feeling like going at all?
    If you don't wanna go because you're skint, then your mate would lend you money like "it's on the house" and you should be fine no?
    If you don't wanna go out because you wanna be by yourself or something then say you're busy. Idk I've never really turn invitations down lol

    id go if I had money, but even if they lent it to me they would expect a repayment at some point - plus I'm not really into going clubbing so I have less incentive

    Mmm then just say you're busy, don't fake an illness, might come back for real that you'd suddenly fall ill ...

    You can't pretend to be ill either even though it would be funny to see you hack your guts out over the phone pretending to cough :laugh:
    you certainly can say you've got work piled up, your boss dumped another shift on you or erm...dunno...lol dunno what you do for a living
    say the plumbing is ****ed :indiff: and the plumber is coming over :rofl:

    Just be honest about the money situation. Even if they say they'll lend you the money just say you wont be able to pay them back. You're all adults so they should be able to respect your decisions. Even bring up the fact that they don't even like clubbing that much if you have to.

    As I've already said you're all adults so they should be mature enough to accept your decisions.
