After a life time of experience, and being nearly 60, I employ the three strikes and you're out method .

Generously entertain new people you meet the first time you invite them over. If you get on well, ask them over a second time. If you really like them, ask them a third time...

If they don't reciprocate after three invitations, cross, them off the list: no exceptions.( even badly off people can afford a cup of coffee).

Decent people freely contribute and return hospitality; free loaders just take and take...
