Should you contact me/myself?

If you have read "When to use I/me/myself", I hope that you clarified your understanding on when to use I, me, or myself, depending on whether you need a subjective or objective pronoun.

There was one other thing that I wanted to mention on the subject: if you're inviting people to contact you, please use the objective "me", not the reflexive "myself". For example, "if you'd like to attend this event, please contact Charlotte or me to RSVP". You aren't the subject and the object of the sentence, so using the reflexive objective pronoun "myself" (e.g., please contact Charlotte or myself) isn't necessary. The objective pronoun "me" is correct.
