(Old Friends) I and my husband know a couple since last 15-20 years, the lady was my classmate. We are quite close and meet each other regularly. We knew each other from the time we all had started working and had no money, so you can say we share a close bond. We enjoy their company. (New Friends) Now I also have another group of couple friends since last 3 years and we also meet up quiet regularly. We usually meet the new friends separately. In a few parties my old friends interacted with my new friends and hit it off together. Strangely they immediately started contacting each other directly and making plans. Since last few months all programs/events are with the full group, even if we are not able to make it, they all still go ahead and make plans without us. I and my husband are very surprised and feel as though we have lost our old friends and are quiet sad. We understand that for festivals and occasions like birthdays it would be normal to call all and have a bigger group but now every week there are common plans. There are no more events only with us and the old friends like before. Also no longer do we just meet the new friends. So we feel we have lost out on both counts. I and my husband don’t feel the same comfort level when all are together in the party/event. When we tried to discus with our new friends about this they said that our old friends kept calling them and they were forced to oblige them and they themselves don’t prefer such meets ups every week but occasionally is fine. Ofcourse we cant discuss too much with them either as then it would be awkward. First is this a issue and am I justified on feeling bad and left out.
