    Usage of face

    Say, I hadn't attended my best friend's wedding. A few days pass after his wedding and another friend of mine asks me to go see him and say sorry to him. I feel very guilty to see him. Can I say the below sentence in that case?

    I can't face seeing him.

    Are there any better and more colloquial sentences that can be used in such situations? Also, is my above description of the situation fine?

    Not a teacher.
    " I don't think I have the guts to see him ".
    " It would be brazen of me to have a face off with him"
    " It's shame on me seeing him face-to-face !"
    " It'd be shameless of me seeing him in person".
    THOUGH YOU OF COURSE COULD USE YOURS, I ONLY TRY TO GIVE YOU SOME MORE STUFF TO FIGURE OUT.

    Yes, you can say that. It's as good as any other way of saying it.
