to feel a bit neglected?

Basically my friend messaged me early on NYE to ask if I wanted to go out with her and our other friends; I'm closest to her really and it's a big group so didn't even know who else was going. So I was only speaking to her about it.

Anyway I replied saying count me in...no reply...until literally an hour ago. 14 days later..! She casually says oh sorry I forgot to check my messages (we use facebook messages not texts) and that she went out with them all. Meanwhile I was at home all NYE thinking she was ignoring me. AIBU to feel bit neglected/ put out? She's fairly flaky when it comes to checking messages etc but normally very nice and we have a good friendship. Suggestions? TIA.

14 days?

She's a douche. Cut her loose.

That's just rude and mean, she is not a proper friend, get rid.

Well if you picked up the phone when you didn't get a reply about the night out you would have gone out with your friends! Why did you just sit there assuming she's ignoring you confused

It's a bit gutting I agree but do you actually think she did it on purpose? I have a friend who is very flaky like that.

Sorry sounds like she didn't want you to join them otherwise she would have phoned you. Not a reliable friend IMO.

Facebook messages will tell you at the bottom of your message when it was read.

I rarely look at phone texts, so very possibly wouldn't have picked up your reply, but if I had sent the invite out by text, I would've checked.

The OP uses Facebook messages not texts. An unread message is visibly flagged up whenever the friend logged on to Facebook.

Why didn't you chase her up when you didn't get a reply from her?

Yabu you said she was flaky at checking messages, and what did you do, you sent her a message, and dident follow it up with a call or another text.

She is definitely out of order and too flaky to care. I would feel heartbroken. These days people are glued to their phones not iPads or laptops. I don't buy her excuse.

Well why didn't you ask about meeting arrangements? She invited you out, then you say yes what time and place. No?

I may be really old-fashioned but if she's a good friend perhaps you could have called her on that communicating device know as a phone....

I'd have rung if it was that important for me to go out. I don't think you can rely on Facebook to be reliable with this kind of thing.

Exactly, op knew she was flaky with messages, some just ignore their Facebook messages, I don't, but some do. If I wanted to go out, and I haven't heard from her, I would have called her a day before to finalise arrangements.

I'd have followed up the message with a text or a phone call.

Only quite a lot of my friends disabled the Facebook messenger service when it wanted to install itself as a separate app on mobile devices. As a result, we only get Facebook messages when actually on laptops or computers.

I realise this is no excuse for waiting 14 days but actually Facebook is an increasingly crap way to message someone.
