Someone has just offered me a ticket to a $3,500/seat charity dinner... as a gift. I feel incredibly awkward accepting something like this, and have no idea how to handle it. I don't want to say "No" and risk hurting her feelings, but it feels like a lot of responsibility to be $3,500 worth of company. For the record, I am a poor student with no way to reciprocate this kindness, lol.
I will probably go, be very uncomfortable and awkward, and then risk tainting this friendship. Social anxiety sucks.
