A shouldvitation is a noncommittal invitation because it lacks a specific date for an event to occur. It may be intended sincerely or it may be an empty, insincere and pointless invitation intended as a brush-off for the purpose of ending a conversation. An empty invitation made out perceived duty, obligation, or politeness. Multiple shouldvitations that are not followed up with a commitment point to a lack of genuine friendship or interest. Famously used in the movie "Take this Waltz” written by Sarah Polley and starring Michelle Williams.
Friend #1 "We should get together for coffee or lunch some time."
Friend #2 "You said that before. Is this just a shouldvitation or a real invitation? They are very different things."
