  • Wedding: October 2010

I had a similar situation happen with a really close friend.  She said she couldn’t come because she couldn’t afford the gas (45 minute drive), which I totally understood.  But because we used to go out to dinner all the time (we took turns paying), and she’s really important to me I told her that I probably owed her money from dinner way back when and that I’d pay for her gas – that’s it’s just important to me for her to be there.  She never responds (facebook convo).  Then the Thursday before the wedding I’m cruising on facebook and see that she’s planning on going to a football game (4 to 5 hour drive and roughly $100 for tickets) – it was very obvious to me that she didn’t even care enough about me to not adverise on facebook that she was spending the money to go to a football game, but not our wedding. 

I haven’t talked to her since; it really hurts, but ultimately she showed me how she feels about me – and I’m not going to continue to put myself in situations to be hurt.

In your situation, y’all were/are closer than my friend and I…maybe talking to her about how important her coming is would help?; if not, maybe you should reevaluate the friendship.

Good Luck!
