IM SO STUPID and I set my self up to get hurt!

GOD! So Ive been at my barn for 2 yreas and a half. Im turning 20 thats a big deal for me in no longer TEEN. I know that 21 is the big deal because you can legally drink and thats when they all throw the big party and go bar hoping.

Well I dont drink. And my last bday part was when I was 18. So I was like hey why dont I just throw a party this year. And my mom and I can treat all the girls to go to the casino and have dinner. I invited 5 people! not including me and my mom. 1 my cousin. Where we were born a year and two days apart. Her big thing was the new baby in the family is turning 1 that weekend so she has to choose, plus my party is at 5:00 which mean with her traveles she would be getting home after 12:00 mind you I havent seen her in a year + and she can alwasy stay at our place.

The 4 people from the barn. Only one said she would come and sounded like she would actually enjoy it. She just came back from being gone at college. And she still said yes. How nice! The others never replied to my e-mails. And one said well she has to help with the BO lessons and she thinks the day camp is starting that weekend.

AUG.1st Friday night. Just one night starting at 5:00.

So I canceled the part to stop the humiliation of a no show of 4 guests. I even made a whole wbsite for my invitation....

We gave a bridal shower for a friend of the family once and no one showed up. It was awful and embarrasing for us and the bride to be. We were stupid and set it for memorial day weekend but still you would think 1 person would have showed
I know how you feel. Its sad but it seems the older you get the harder it is to have friends. Especially at your age when people are busy with college, they're getting married or busy with a job.
I think you and your mom should go and have a good time just the 2 of you.
Happy Birthday!! a little early but....

I know exactly how that feels. I have invited friends from my last job out to do things with me, and my family several times, and I always seem to get a 'beat around the bush' answer, or no answer at all. It really ticks me off!!! So, I've just stopped talking to them all together. I'll have to make new friends, which is hard for me to do, but.. I'd like to think that the friends that I do have, or will have will WANT to hang out with me, not because they simply tolerate me.

awww -hugs- i'm sorry! I know how you feel though! At our age (i'm 20 too), REAL friends are few and far between. many people are out there for themselves and dont really care about anyone else. Even though it doesnt seem like many people are going to come, make the best out of it! If you go in with the intent to have a blast, you totally will. and forget about the no-shows, they clearly dont know what they're missing.
