Yeah that totally makes sense & I'm glad they include me... but they also often do it with one-on-one get-togethers...

Like, let's the two of us go out for lunch, stuff like that?  Yeah, that is hard, I hear you. Its like they aren't paying attention to you as a friend and what is going on in your life right now.
