I was invited to a friend’s engagement party with a plus one. I am single and don’t really have anyone in mind to go with so I was going to go alone, which I’m fine with because I know I’ll have other single friends there. My question is how to word the response to indicate I will be attending but not with a date. There was no response card with the invitation just a note to RSVP by a certain date so I was going to send a note but I’m struggling with the wording. I’m sure I’m overthinking it but I could use help!

If you say ” I will be attending” without mentioning anyone else or saying we you are RSVPing just for yourself.

“Dear Friend,
Congratulations on your engagement! I look forward to attending the party!
Best,
Alice”
