2 invitations for the same day
(Virginia Beach, VA)
I invited my friends, a married couple, for a Super Bowl party about 4 weeks before the game since we had them over the year before and it worked out well. About a week before the game, she said that she had been invited to a Super Bowl party at someone else's house and that they were going there instead. Then she added, "Don't worry, the hostess said that you can come too". The other hostess was the wife of my friends' pastor. The excuse my friend gave me was that there would be people at the other party that she hadn't seen for a long time. I was incredibly hurt and did not attend the other party. My husband said I should just let it go. However, this friend claims that I am a "best friend" and went along as if nothing had happened. Am I wrong to be offended and should I take this as a sign that I should rethink the friendship? I am an acquaintance of the other hostess but was not on her original guest list.
