I guess so

"I guess so" is a very useful phrase for reluctantly agreeing with someone. "Reluctantly" agreeing means agreeing but also showing that you're not completely happy to agree.

A: Please come. It'll be so much fun!

B: All right, I guess so.

A: Cool!

A: Would it be OK if I borrow your pink shirt for my date tonight?

B: Uh, I guess so.
