Today, I realized that the only times I get to hang out with my friends outside of school are when one of them accidentally mentions plans in front of me and they are obligated by social protocol to invite me. FML

Yep, every time I read these type FMLs I have to mentally add quotation marks to the word "friends".

OP if they only hang out with you for social obligations theyre NOT your friends.

Actually he is excluded in some episodes. There was one where they couldn't decide on a movie/dinner so they ditched him in the apartment. There's another one where the gang eats food with Raj and Pria and Sheldon is left behind. Watch the show next time before making a comment.

You forgot about the episode where Leonard explains how the elevator broke. They took a journey back in time, where nobody liked Sheldon and the group ditched him.


Actually, I think you'll find Leonard is the nucleus of the group, and it centres around him. If you'd seen the episode in which they flash back to when Leonard moved in with Sheldon, you would know this. They all go out and try to leave Sheldon behind. Even without seeing that episode, it's blatantly obvious that the others find Sheldon annoying and do try to not include him sometimes. Know what you're talking about before talking crap and arguing with people.

actually, he noted that it probably was the best option, but only after they bailed on him. Sheldon still thought he was coming, but they ditched him without his approval. I know this show, you don't, fuck off.

and again, Kasey, that's not even why he made the joke about Sheldon. It was because he says "social protocol". I only proved you wrong about the episodr because I have a compulsive need to fix idiocy.

I'm sorry, but I hate when people say that. Just because something goes wrong you do not immediately give up on someone or assume something. You need to talk to them about it. You never know, maybe it was just a big misunderstanding. Or maybe you should socialize with that friend more. Maybe the friend doesn't feel as close to you as other friends. There are so many reasons they could be doing that.


Every group has that one person that nobody really likes but they still hang out with for some stupid reason. If you can't figure out who it is in your group, it's probably you.

at least they invited him. no one should be forced to hang out with done they don't want to. but op does need new friends that actually like him.

Why not ask to hang out with them instead of them just telling you about the plans, and thus are invited? Maybe they are so used to doing the planning that just expect you to accept the invite.

ninja is such an overused term now- OP, youre not an antisocial ninja; you have friends. i think you just need to find new ones, that purposefully invite you places.

It might just be me, but If I were aware of the fact I was only invited out of courtesy, I wouldn't show up at all. It probably only fuels the fire for them to, talk crap about you and intentionally not invite you in the future. I would stick to myself until I found real friends that enjoyed my company.

That is so sad. You probably need to be a bit more outgoing & confident. I was like that. I joined clubs & took up basketball outside of school and met some really lovely people. Plus this gave me more confidence to be more outgoing at school. Good luck!!

OP, I hope you realize those people aren't truly your friends. In my experience, it's better to be alone until you find people who actually care about you. The realization that no one wants you around always hurts more than a plan-free weekend.

Good luck finding people worth your time!

It seems you haven't taken the hint. As bad as this sounds, they likely aren't your friends. Or you guys are just casual acquaintances. If they are making plans outside of school and not inviting you, then you are not as close as you feel you are. It is going to suck, but you need to talk to them about this. Tell them you feel left out and why do they feel the need not to invite you. You might not like the answer, but it could also be a good thing. They could inform you of behaviors that make them uncomfortable. Either way, it seems as if they do not want you around and as such you should stop forcing yourself into social situations with them. Look for new friends.
