to be annoyed that my friend has invited our other friend?

I'm very close with one woman and would call her my best friend (even though I don't like that term). We are part of a bigger friendship group and one of those women (friend B) is also very close to best friend (friend A)

It doesn't bother me in general - people can be friends with whoever they want. The only time it bothered me is when I used to go over to friend A's house every Thursday and friend B has invited herself (she is very forward) to be there every Thursday as well (she works abroad half the year every year which is why she only started doing this)

I never told friend A it bothered me, and it mainly bothered me because I talk about private things with friend A that I wouldn't want to share with anyone else and sometimes I'd just like to see my friend by myself.

Anyway for friend A's birthday (November) I took her out for lunch at a place she's wanted to go to for ages and she said she'd love to take me for my birthday. She has now organised this and invited friend B without saying anything to me.

I'd usually let something like this go but I feel friend B always has to be involved and I wouldn't care if friend A and B did something just them two. But I just feel like it's my birthday ...

Sorry to sound bratty and just to point out I'm probably not even going to mention anything let alone fall out with anyone. Just wondered if aibu to be annoyed?

candyapplecore I think that's a little unkind. I think nemno was confiding a lack of confidence that A would want to spend time with her, not suggesting that A didn't want to see you

You're not being U, but I think your close friend just doesn't realise you aren't all one big happy close threesome which is why she keeps inviting her.
