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.
