I understand that people have different circles of friends and you cannot always be included in everything but a bit of acknowledgment or occasion invite would be nice. Workplace friendships is a whole new thread.

I tend not to dissect things.
What would I do?
I'd organise a huge party and not invite them.

WWYD - excluded from 'friends' social event?
I'm just sad reading these posts... I often take up such invites anyway, then used the opportunity to get to know people better and make friends. Then I get invited because people want to hang out with me (I think!). Likewise, if people are discussing something they did recently and I wasn't invited I will say something like 'that sounds awesome, if there is a free spot / ticket next time I'd love to join you'. I find that often people don't invite someone because they hadn't thought that the person may be interested. Anyway, I don't want to start a debate, just provide some fuel for thought as this approach has helped me widen my friend circle, if it can help others that would be awesome

I have this issue too. I have a small group of friends that basically all met each other through me. Coincidentally they all live within 5 minutes of each other whereas I lived 20 mins away. Constantly I would see fb posts of them all at the beach or at the park for a bbq or at each other's houses.
I'm working on losing weight and walking a lot. Kept telling two of the girls to let me know when they were walking and I would meet them. Never heard from either of them yet they constantly checked in on fb out walking bush tracks and stuff.
I slowly realised I wasn't a 'convenient' friend. Because I couldn't just drop everything and be where they were going in 5 minutes then they just didn't bother inviting me. Now I've moved 40 mins away one couple has stopped communicating with me all together. If I want to see any of the others I have to drive to them. There's no meeting half way or them coming here.

It hurts when you realise you are on the outer with people you thought were your friends. I've been there and it makes you question yourself and your value.
