@maeshowers:  I’m sorry you’re feeling like your friendships aren’t working out. It sounds like you and these other gals are all going through high transition times in your lives (what with the mention of grad school, your friend being single and all) so everything is going to feel pretty unstable friendship and relationship-wise for a few years. Everyone is finding their way and sometimes it seems as though everyone has gone. Sometimes that is very much the case!

The good thing is that your sister and best friend are there for you, fully supporting you and happy for you. Concentrate on them. Enrich your relationships with them. Continue to be loving and giving. The rest will flourish in time, but nurture the relationships you have with them now and be glad to be surrounded by people who are fully there for you, not just half-way. Quality, not quantity, is what matters here. Hang in there and have a GREAT bachelorette! (And by the way, I had only two friends at my bachelorette and it was a blast. Good company makes all the difference!)

You are actually better off. It may be that with the transition and everything moving on and the transition, they could be jealous of you getting married and it’s making being a bridesmaid hard and they aren’t happy for you because of it. If she doesn’t want to be there, it’s better she is not there. It will make your life easier. Be happy for the girls you do have and enjoy your engagement and wedding planning.
