I smile sweetly, give them a friendly little ‘finger-wave’ and slam the door behind me as quickly as possible. 

I know they’re just trying to be nice. 

But if I accept their nice, I am expected to be nice in return. 

And if I am nice in return, before long their nice will turn into, “Let’s get together.” “Why don’t you join us for a drink?” or “Bob works with a guy about your age. He’s single too.”
