Survey says...

We asked 100 people how well you need to know someone to invite yourself to sleep at their house...

If this were a Family Feud question, what would it show? I was just thinking I should plan a vacation to visit Rachel in Nashville. Then I remembered, I really don't know Rachel very well. Not in a "she might not be who she seems" way, but in a "it might be rude to intrude on her life because I barely know her" way.

Would you think it was weird if someone you really didn't know super well approached you about visiting you and wanted to stay with you? I'm a little dumb about the etiquette of this - I don't have to know you very well for me to warmly open my home to you and invite you to stay w/ me and tour guide you (think: Boston). I am very liberal in my visitor policy, probably more than almost anybody.

Throwing a survey up on my blog seemed like the best solution to this problem. How well should you know someone before you ask to stay at their house for a few days on vaca? I know Michael very well, but he doesn't allow visitors to stay w/ him. I had met Rachelle once, and she slept over at my house and didn't think it was weird. Where do you stand on this "important" issue?

Even though I'm selfish and particular about my living space, I believe I'm also overly generous about visitors. My answer to the "would you let this person stay with you?" question is almost always yes...so I'm also a bad judge.
