one of the members of our school organization is celebrating her birthday tomorrow, and we met during lunch break in the place where our members hang out; there were only 3 of us there. i saw that somebody had brought a guitar so i started playing it to amuse myself. while i was singing to myself, the birthday celebrant handed an invitation card to the other member and they started talking about the preparations she was making for her party tomorrow. i had a bad feeling about what happened because if she had intended to invite me, she would have given me an invitation first because i was closer to her than the other person (i was right in front of her!). the two of them eventually finished talking, and she still didn't give anything to me. then somebody arrived and *tada!* she gave him a card! it felt awkward really. i left after a while. (T_T) how would you have reacted if that happened to you?

Just leave it like that. As you said, you are close to her she would have thought an invitation would be too formal or may be would have something special for you. Wait n Watch...don't just jump to conclusions.

oh. actually when i said 'close' i meant physically close or 'close across space'. haha. that's why i added that i was right in front of her. but anyway, i don't really mind about not being invited. i just don't understand why she had to make things awkward by showing other people that she won't invite me.(@_@)

You must have done something to upset your friend. Else you are saying that you are close to her then how can she not give you the first card. I would just go up to her and ask her straight if i would be able to come or not though i would know that my chances are low. I would just mind my own business and i would make that friend apologize to me if i could later on. If he/she really didn't want me to come then i wouldn't come that's all.

yeah i think she doesn't like me very much. i mean, we're not really close; i just don't understand why she had to do things....publicly and make the people around feel awkward. because the first girl who received the card noticed that she wasn't going to give me any, so she felt compelled to talk to me just to break the ice. m(_ _)m sad experience really.

You can either ask her why she didn't give you an invite or if you can go to her party. Tho i think walking away was a good idea at the time so not to cause trouble.
