I'm sorry you feel hurt And left out Op.
If this ever happens again, I wouldn't ask them about it. The sad reality is people can choose to invite whoever they choose to their events and choose not to invite whoever they like. In this instance, they chose not to invite you.
What I'd do with that information is to use it to consider how close I'd like to be with this couple in future.
Do I want to spend more time with them? Do I want to spend more money and energy entertaining them?
Hold your head up high, be fabulous and try not to worry about it.
Personally I'd be pleasant to them if you encounter them with others in your social circle but not go out of my way with them.
I probably don't have anything to offer that will help but I have to pipe up and say that I'd feel the same way! When your key friends are all there and you tend to socialise in the group that would totally sting. You are obviously friendship "group" close enough to have them at your hubby's 40th. I HATE exclusion and when it's for an event that it wouldn't really matter I just don't get why anyone would do it!
Oh I can relate to this..... People are nice to me etc but once I mention my hubby is a lot older than me, boom....it's like I'm an alien.
And recently I thought we had new friends but after an occasion we don't talk anymore..... Not sure if anyone recalls the topic "dress codes" it was about that occasion.
I personally wouldn't even bother. People who want real friendships you know who they are, other people who you see occasionally are not friends, there just associates. In my opinion.
Never doubt yourself and never put yourself 2nd best. Your number 1 in everything. At the end of the day, if your happy with yourself, then just let things roll. Everything comes out in the end.
Hope you feel better soon.
Hugs @amiracle4me. Even if it wasn't intended to hurt your feelings it still stings.
I stay off Facebook for that very reason. Happy in my ignorant little hole, unaware of the things I'm not being invited to.
I understand how you feel, but please don't throw away a group of friends on the basis of one missed invite xxx
