@Annebanan:

It’s not your fault. You cannot be responsible for another’s happiness. However considering her relationship has been rather lack lustre to say the least, maybe she just fears losing you. I think it’s worth talking to her. Engagements can be hard for some friends as they worry about how this will affect your friendship. However, aside from this, don’t worry too much about her reaction, more so it probably has nothing to do with you but is more so about her own unhappiness.

To me, it doesn’t sound like she is jealous. It sounds like she is just mad you blew her off for New Year’s Eve.

Its really hard for some people who are unhappy with their relationship to put on a happy face and jump up and down with their happily engaged friends. I try to talk about wedding things with other friends who are in stable relationships even if they aren’t my best friend. However, she might just be mad about New Years so lets go with that. You should talk to her and tell her you refuse to throw away the friendship over missing a party and see how she reacts to that. Its kind of in her court at some point to make the next move.

She’s probably just afraid of losing you. You won’t be her Dirty Delete as much anymore. And she already got a taste of losing you when you weren’t at her party. Even though you had good reason not to be, and she probably understands the reason. It’s just that she still feels like you are going to go your separate ways when you are married because that is what happens to most people.
